In this study it analyse venous return with different compression stockings (CS). 10 experienced runners ran in two experimental test during 35 minutes in a treadmill at 75% of their maximal aerobic speed. Venous blood flow was measured before/after test with magnetic resonance (RMN). Results indicated that fatigue increased venous blood flow in all conditions (p<0.05), but larger differences were found without stocking condition (WS) (right=1,63 ml/s; left=1,66 ml/s). No significant differences (p>0.05) were found with medium compression stocking (MS). Results suggest that CS didn´t increase venous return and decrease comparing to WS. Nevertheless, if compression stockings lead faster recovery, we couldn’t measure because RMN isn’t faster like other methods.
