Despite lack of objective evidence based-support, lumbar sympathectomy (LS) continues to hold a place in the treatment of refractory ischemic ulceration or persistent rest pain, especially when there is a distal ischemia, which is not suitable for direct arterial surgery. There is no...
- Sympathectomy for Peripheral Vascular Sclerosis. de Takats, Geza // Angiology;Apr1954, Vol. 5 Issue 2, p133

- BLOOD FLOW IN POSTSYMPATHECTOMY PATIENTS. Gilbertsen, Victor A.; Emerson, Edward C.; Kottke, Frederic J. // Angiology;Apr1960, Vol. 11 Issue 2, p139
Difficulties associated with the clinical performance of accurate measurements of blood flow in the intact extremity often appear to complicate objective appraisal of the effects of sympathectomies performed for arterial insufficiency. Quantitative determination of arterial flow might be...
- Thromboangiitis Obliterans--Its Overwhelming Incidence in Lower Limbs; A Plausible Explanation. Kamath, M. V. // Angiology;Dec1985, Vol. 36 Issue 12, p880
A plausible explanation for the overwhelming incidence of thromboangiitis ohliterans with gangrene in lower limbs (as compared to that in upper limbs) in a series of about 1000 cases is given. Based on that a simple local operative procedure is proposed to replace lumbar sympathectomy in early...
