The article presents a case of thromboangiitis obliterans (with clear hyper reactivity to tobacco) treated with coronary vasodilators not reducers of the arterial pressure (first nitroglycerin with papaverine; afterwards pentaerythritol, with papaverine), with polarizing solution administered by venous drip, and suppression of tobacco. The improvement obtained exceeded that produced by any therapy used by researchers for the same diseased process: disappearance of all local thrombophelebitic phenomena in 24 to 48 hours; disappearance of the pain in 6 hours; return to normal of the color of the skin owing to reestablishment of the arterial flow within the same period of time and elimination of the necrotic slough; increase up to normal of the oscillometric readings of the leg (not only of the foot), which had been very low (and which during the tobacco test descended to an extraordinary extent); reappearance of pulsation in the foot, and total reestablishment of the patient.

It is not clear whether impairment of endothelial function reflects the acute effects of passive smoke exposure or the chronic effects. The purpose of this study was to assess the hypothesis that short-term exposure to passive...

    Thromboangiitis obliterans (Buerger's Disease) is an occlusive vascular disease of unknown etiology. It occurs predominantly in male heavy cigarette smokers. The relationship between heavy cigarette smoking and Buerger's disease has been well established and emphasized by many authors. Only rare...
