Who knows the rationale of the refilling time measured by plethysmography?

Abstract

This mini-review analyzes the pathophysiology significance of the refilling time (RT) assessed in limbs after exercise by the means of plethysmographic techniques. Based on such a rationale the Author offers an interpretation of RT following suppression of reflux points respectively achieved by CHIVA or by ablative techniques, showing the pathophysiologic differences between two different and controversial strategies of managing chronic venous insufficiency.
