Is it possible for low blood pressure to cause venous stasis?

In brief: No

No. Varicose veins develop because a valve somewhere in the veins has failed and blood pools in the leg veins rather than traveling back to the heart.
Plus, a low blood pressure affects the arteries not the veins.

In brief: Venous Stasis

Venous stasis is caused by high blood pressures in the veins, usually in the lower extremities.
As dr. Aalami states, this is due to abnormal valves in the veins, allowing for blood to pool distally.

In brief: Just the opposite

As dr. Bolhack said, the real name for venous stasis is venous hypertension due to chronic venous insufficiency.
Venous hypertension can lead to serious problems but, fortunately, it doesn't have anything to do with whether you have high or low blood pressure.
