	1. A recent study demonstrated that edema control by Unna Boot compression (UB) accelerated the healing of ulcers in legs with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) (1) in a large number of individuals in different age groups. This raised the question as to the physiologic mechanisms by which edema control impacts on the healing of venous stasis ulcers. 
	2. Like the leg muscle pump, an UB sets up a pumping sequence in an ambulating person by virtue of its non-elastic consistency which establishes a fixed-volume compartment around the limb, similarly to the fascia around the muscle, that makes it a “pump” (2).
	3. In a leg under the UB the pumping force is generated by the power that moves the ankle joint (the “ankle pump”(3)) due to its anatomically determined topical relationship of its skin fixed to the UB and its deep tissues during movements. In an arm, possessed with the diarthrodial metacarpo-phalangeal, wrist and elbow joints and covered by an UB, any limb motion, passive or active, empties edema.                              
	4. As a general rule, the power that moves an ankle or any diarthrodial joint covered by an UB generates pumping pressures (4).
	5. Legs with venous stasis ulcers due to CVI, in a standing position show a marked drop in arterial blood flow around the ulcers (5)
	6. Unpublished observations in small animals (rabbits and cats) had demonstrated that hind legs covered by an UB elicited steep increases in arterial inflow during passive movements (6).
	7. We plan to record changes in arterial perfusion in human legs covered by an UB during passive and active ankle motions, by use of the laser-doppler in constant-temperature rooms and measured topical skin temperatures (7) or else by measuring cutaneous oxygen tension, as against the needed number of controls in the actual protocol.

 309. Rosse WF:Dr.Ham’s test revisited: Blood 78: 547-50, 1990.

Dad, Professor of Rehabilitation Medicine Emeritus at Albert Einstein Medical School, and still teaching the residents at age 89 as he was dying of Mesothelioma, was struggling to learn computer language in the early 90’s at the time IT was itself just figuring out better operating systems. He had one of those clunky earlier models. It was an awkward time in 1996-98 for Apple computers when Dad was preparing his book on Edema, and knew he had a race with time.

    He died way before this book was developed medically, but in the process of needing computer help and always giving me viewings of his work, my interest was piqued in edema. We had discussion on the range of this work taking in earth waters and some of the introduction does mention planetary parameters.

    At the time I had no inkling of having diabetes or edema, calf, or ankle pump problems, or distorted rocker-bottom feet that came to me 4 years after his death. I had all his files on both our computers, and at his death discovered several file drawers with all his papers published, as well as a collection of his drawings, art & fabulous doodles. I knew all along I wanted to publish a book of his with my small press, but then I had no premonition of going back to school and doing a masters degree, nor of living in a tiny house in Lyons Colorado with no presses or papermaking facility. OP4 became my perfect venue to make a web version of a book for dad’s unfinished opus on edema, interlacing his art and doodles, which only touch on his endless jokemaking abilities.
