ABSTRACT
With strictly a clinical office approach, isoxsuprine was used in the treatment of 100 patients with peripheral vascular disorders. Definite clinical improvement was obtained in 89 per cent of these patients. In our hands, isoxsuprine was found to be easy to administer, devoid of side effects in recommended doses, and well tolerated. Our clinical findings are in agreement with those of other investigators who have used more finite measurements of evaluation. We believe that isoxsuprine is a very useful drug and an extremely good addition to presently used vascular therapy, although not a replacement, and that further clinical trials in peripheral vascular disorders are recommended.
