ABSTRACT
Two hundred and eighty-four arteriograms were performed in the hands and feet 178 leprosy patients. Narrowing and tortuosity of the digital vessels, especially in the presence of bone absorption, were constant features. Digital tufts revealed signs of ischemia. However, in the presence of infection, hyperemia was a definite observation. Diminution in the caliber of the digital arteries and thinning or absence of the vascular end loops prove that ischemia plays a vital role in the production of various lesions in leprosy.

    The diagnosis and management of acute mesenteric ischemia (AMI) have evolved considerably since first described nearly 150 years ago. Angiography remains the gold standard for establishing a definitive diagnosis. Today, several therapeutic options--both percutaneous and surgical--are available...

    1. Arteriographic examination of the lower extremity is of assistance in assessing the circulatory state of that extremity. 2. The technique has been briefly reviewed. 3. Indications, contraindications, and complications have been enumerated. 4. The chief uses for the method have been discussed.

    Having succeeded in salvaging severely ischemic canine hindlimbs by staged arteriovenous reversal, the authors then successfully treated, from January, 1984, to June, 1986, 33 patients with a total of 39 lower extremities by this approach, except for 1 limb. According to the different levels of...

    Background Recent studies showed that hyperglycaemia (HG) blocks anaesthetic-induced preconditioning. The influence of HG on anaesthetic-induced postconditioning (post) has not yet been determined. We investigated whether sevoflurane (Sevo)-induced postconditioning is blocked by HG and whether...

    PHD2 serves as an oxygen sensor that rescues blood supply by regulating vessel formation and shape in case of oxygen shortage. However, it is unknown whether PHD2 can influence arteriogenesis. Here we studied the role of PHD2 in collateral artery growth by using hindlimb ischaemia as a model, a...
