ABSTRACT
Focuses on the hematologic differences between thromobangiitis obliterans and atherosclerosis. Concentration of heparin-precipitable fractions of fibrinogen (HPF) in the plasma of patients with thromobangiitis obliterans; Correlations between HPF and total fibrinogen; Specific nature of the two conditions.
