ABSTRACT
Studies the value of skin thermometry in peripheral vascular disease of the lower extremities. Advantages and disadvantages of skin thermometry; Investigation on whether skin thermometry combined with sympathetic blockade can be used as indication for the desirability of sympathectomy; Restricted value of skin-thermometry for the determination of the site and the extent of the vascular disease; Value of the method in predicting the results of sympathectomy.
