- Guideline for Interventional Recanalization of Lower Extremity Artery. Young Hwan Kim; Jae Ik Bae; Yong Sun Jeon; Chang Won Kim; Hwan Jun Jae; Kwang Bo Park; Young Kwon Jo; Man Deuk Kim // Journal of the Korean Society of Radiology;Nov2014, Vol. 71 Issue 5, p205
Peripheral arterial occlusive disease caused by atheroscleorsis can be presented with intermittent claudication or critical limb ischemia. The proper diagnosis and management is warranted to reduce symptoms and salvage the limbs. With the introduction of new technique and dedicated materials,...
- Thromboangiitis Obliterans--Its Overwhelming Incidence in Lower Limbs; A Plausible Explanation. Kamath, M. V. // Angiology;Dec1985, Vol. 36 Issue 12, p880
A plausible explanation for the overwhelming incidence of thromboangiitis ohliterans with gangrene in lower limbs (as compared to that in upper limbs) in a series of about 1000 cases is given. Based on that a simple local operative procedure is proposed to replace lumbar sympathectomy in early...

- Komparativna analiza perfuzije tkiva donjih ekstremiteta metodom perfuzione scintigrafije nakon hiperbaricne oksigenacije i lumbalne simpatektomije. Zoranovic, Uro�; Jevtic, Miodrag; Jovanovic, Milan; Pucar, Dragan; Cizmic, Milica // Vojnosanitetski Pregled: Military Medical & Pharmaceutical Journ;Jul2009, Vol. 66 Issue 7, p563
Background/Aim. Lumbar syphatectomy (LS) increases pheripheral blood flow primarily by the arteriolar vasodilatation within the skin vascular net. Increase in tissue nutrition takes place only in the distal blood vessels of the skin. Nevertheless, in some patients sympathectomy brings about...
- Heart Rate-Corrected Ankle-to-Arm Index in the Diagnosis of Moderate Lower Extremity Arterial Disease. Abraham, Pierre; Desvaux, Benedicte; Colin, Denis; Leftheriotis, Georges; Saumet, Jean-Louis // Angiology;Aug1995, Vol. 46 Issue 8, p673
Although the ratio of ankle-to-arm systolic pressures (AAI) at rest is widely used in the clinical diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease, the heart rate (HR) at which the measurements are performed is rarely reported. The relation of ankle-to-arm index (AAI) to HR was studied in a normal...
- Transcutaneous Oxygen Tension and Doppler Ankle Pressure During Upper and Lower Body Exercise in Patients with Peripheral Arterial Occlusive Disease. Yuefei Liu; Steinacker, Jürgen M.; Stauch, Martin // Angiology;Aug1995, Vol. 46 Issue 8, p689
The effects of upper and lower body exercise on blood supply to the lower extremities were investigated in patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) by measurements of transcutaneous oxygen tension (tcPo2) and Doppler ankle pressure (DAP). Twenty patients with PAOD (PAOD group)...

Examines the arterio-venous oxygen in patients with obliterative arterial disease of the limbs. Average difference of oxygen rate between the femoral vein and artery; Observation of greater arterio-venous difference in oxygen in the limbs; Increase in arteriovenous imbalance.
- LATE RESULTS IN THE TREATMENT OF PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL INSUFFICIENCY OF THE LOWER LEG WITH LUMBAR SYMPATHECTOMY. Berge, T.; Johansen, E. // Angiology;Dec1958, Vol. 9 Issue 6, p342
A group of 45 lower extremities with occlusive and spastic arterial insufficiency were treated with lumbar sympathectomy. A follow-up examination after 4 to 21 years showed improvement in 40 out of 45 legs; 1 was unchanged and 4 had gradually become worse. No serious side-effects were observed,...
