We determined the lactate and pyruvate concentrations of venous blood drawn from the dorsum of feet which were severely isehemic as a result of chronic arterial occlusion, in order to measure the relative amounts of anaerobic and aerobic metabolism taking place. Six patients having a blood flow capacity to their toes of less than 10 per cent of normal were compared with six normal, control subjects. No significant difference in the lactate-pyruvate ratio was found. Thus, despite severe deprivation of blood flow, no evidence of increased anaerobic metabolism in ischemic feet at rest was found.

    The article presents application of a new method of limb blood flow measurement using a radioactive isotope and a gamma camera. Measurements of blood flow are more physiologically relevant than those of pressure. The new method allows an accurate measure of arterial inflow during the reactive...

    Background: Diabetic retinopathy is assumed to be due to impaired retinal autoregulation, involving both pressure autoregulation and metabolic autoregulation. The disease displays regional differences, with signs of hyperperfusion in the macular area and capillary occlusion with retinal ischemia...
