Some patients with intermittent claudication develop exertional numbness involving the skin of the toes and foot. This may be a valuable clue to more dangerous ischemia, or it may be harmless. The problem call be clarified using ankle blood pressure as determined with the Doppler ultrasound flow detector and a simple exercise test. Three illustrative eases arc presented and our indication for lumbar sympathectomy in selected patients.

    A 44-year-old marathon runner was referred with a 2-week history of the sudden onset of severe left calf claudication. Angiography showed a 3- to 4-centimeter focal near-occlusion of the left midpopliteal artery. Magnetic resonance imaging showed a cystic structure in the left popliteal artery...

    To test the hypothesis of a myofascial component in intermittent claudication, 56 male patients were studied. Calf blood flow, at rest and during postischemic and postexercise hyperemia, presence of trigger areas, and exercise tolerance were evaluated and compared. The results can be summarized...
