Abstract

In this study, the effect of impaired knee or ankle-joint mobility on venous muscle pump function of the lower limbs was investigated in 10 healthy young subjects (5 males, 5 females, mean age: 25,5 +/- 3 years) by means of direct venous blood pressure measurements under exercise conditions ("peripheral phlebodynamometry"). The subjects had to walk on a treadmill for 1 minute on plain ground with a defined velocity (1.5 km/h). There were 3 experimental conditions: walking with free joint mobility (1); walking with restricted mobility of the knee (2), and the ankle joint (3). The primary outcome measure was the venous pressure gradient between the resting and the minimal pressure during exercise (Delta P-max), secondary outcome measures were the times to complete (T-0) and to half-maximal recovery (T-max1/2) of resting venous pressure levels after exercise, respectively. As compared withcondition 1 (free walking), reductions of knee (condition 2) and ankle-joint mobility (condition 3) resulted in significant decreases of Delta P-max (p = 0.0323 and 0.0051, resp.; Wilcoxon signed rank test). This Delta P-maxreduction was greater for walking with restricted ankle joint mobility than for walking with restricted knee joint mobility (21.5% versus 12.0%, p = 0.045). By contrast, venous refilling times (T-0 and T-max1/2) were not influenced by restrictions of joint mobility. These results indicate that restrictions of free joint mobility may result in ambulatory venous hypertension even in healthy young subjects. Therefore, in patients with preexisting chronic venous insufficiency impaired joint mobility may lead to additional functional deterioration and should be taken into account in both clinical practice and expert opinions.
