Sort of: Arterial insufficiency is not a primary cause of edema, however, patients with very severe arterial insufficiency manifesting as ischemic rest pain will often keep their feet in a dependent position (sitting). This prolonged dependency may secondarily produce edema. David Fox, MD, FACS, RPVI www. FoxVein.com
