ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the peripheral vascular responses in the limbs. Most ideas about the vasomotor inervation of skeletal muscle in man are inferences drawn from the effect of certain procedures on blood flow through muscular parts of limbs. There is evidence that these vessels which supply the muscles are mediated by sympathetic vasoconstrictor and vasodilator nerves. Recent work has shown that these sympathetic nerves are more abundant in the leg. There is a physiologic difference between the upper and lower limb muscle vasculature because the sympathetic nerves are more abundant in the legs than in the arms.

    Schwannomas are benign neoplasms derived from Schwann cells. In this work, we present our experience in operative management of schwannomas and analyse results of treatment. Clinical material consisted of 34 patients, in whom 44 schwannomas located in extremities were excised between 1985 and...

    A new method of segmental pulse wave velocity (SPWV) measurement is described. The method enables the determination of the velocity of pulse wave propagation by means of an electrical impedance plethysmograph in three segments of the lower limb: in the thigh (segment I ) , in the middle part of...

    The condition of venous stasis in the lower extremities is extremely common. The morbidity, even, mortality, from this condition makes it a problem of major magnitude. Various surgical procedures have failed to provide an adequate solution to this problem. Certainly no surgical procedure, of...

    Occlusion of an infrainguinal sapheuous vein bypass presents an unresolved problem of further treatment in patients with threatened limbs. The implantation of alloplastic grafts is an attempt to possibly avoid amputation. The authors report 56 patients who were treated by secondary alloplastic...

    Systemic and local complications occur after revascularization of extremities exposed to prolonged complete ischemia. Recently the authors demonstrated in experimental and clinical studies that these deleterious effects after normal blood (uncontrolled) reperfusion could be reduced significantly...
