could low blood pressure cause venous stasis?

No: venous stasis, usually referring to blood pooling in the veins of the legs is due to incompetent leaking valves in the vein there. The pooling blood leads to increased pressur in the veins of the lower legs, which can cause injury to the skin in the lower legs.
