ABSTRACT
Two groups, representing 43 patients with obliterative peripheral arterial disease, have been treated with the hormone relaxin in combination with small amounts of estrogen. Relaxin has (consistently and without fail produced healing of ischemic ulcerations, an elevation to normal of the skin temperature of the involved digits, and an increase in segmental and digital blood flow. We feel that this therapy differs great promise in the medical management of peripheral obliterative arterial disease and that other effects on the cardiovascular system are worthy of continued study.
