ABSTRACT
In sixteen patients with ischemic handsyndromes, strain gauge plethysmography was used as a noninvasive diagnostic test. Contrast-arteriography was available for comparison. These patients demonstrate the role for a noninvasive test in selecting patients with Raynaud's phenomenon or asphyxia for arteriography.

    Chronic mesenteric artery ischemia can be difficult to evaluate after stent placement. This case describes the use of a pressure wire to demonstrate the hemodynamic significance of in-stent restenosis. Papaverine was used to vasodilate the mesenteric bed, mimicking the post-prandial state. The...
