Figure 5

O2Hb patterns of the left (black) and right (red) leg in CP during warm-up (W), RAMP exercise protocol (E), and recovery (R); solid vertical lines denote phase transitions. The dashed line in CP with severe kinking represents the sudden change from CP to NP to demonstrate the effect of severe kinking on oxygenation. The data within the black solid circle in the patient with an intravascular lesion shows inaccurate data due to movement artefacts of the patients’ right leg which slipped of the resting platform.
