Abstract

Aim. Although the venous system is in direct continuity with the heart and the arterial system, it is not known whether chronic venous disease (CVD) has any impact on either of these. The aims of this study were to investigate the global functions of the left and right heart, and also arterial stiffness parameters in patients with CVD.
