Can low blood pressure cause venous stasis? Or unrelated?

LBP and Venous Stasi. Blood pressure is disease of the arteries. Venous stasis is disease of the veins. While both may exist in the same patient, they are not necessarily connected. Venous stasis is due to floppy veins, usually in the lower extremities. The back flow of blood is what causes the increased blood pressure in the veins. The increased pressure allows fluid to leak into the tissues causing venous stasis.
