Medical - Medical (general) / fina hospital report
Dutch term or phrase: CVD gestuwd
No further context.

I assume it's elevated central venous pressure, but I am puzzled about the use of "gestuwd" in this case.

This is from a Flemish report.

Many thanks,

CVP congested/congestive/gongestion
Explanation:
Venous blood congestion (hyperaemia). Gestuwd is a derivation of stuwing - bloedstuwing, but I'm not sure what English form would apply in this case.
