Özet

Purpose: One of the possible etiologies of proptosis in patients with thyroid-associated eye disease is stated to be passive orbital venous congestion caused by the occlusive and constrictive changes of the superior ophthalmic vein (SOV). In an attempt to clarify the validity of this claim, quantitative information on the flow velocity of the SOV was obtained by colour Doppler imaging in 24 patients with thyroid-associated eye disease and compared with data from the control group.
