The article cites a study regarding experience with buflomedil in peripheral arterial occlusive disease. This study concerns the use of buflomedil in the treatment of patients with chronic peripheral arterial occlusive disease of the lower extremities and various degrees of ischemia. It was concluded that buflomedil is a vasoactive agent with significant peripheral and cerebral vasoactive properties. It improves the circulation at the microcirculation level in impaired vascular beds of the extremities, finally increasing the arterial blood flow.

    It has been demonstrated that, in most arteriopathic patients, vasodilators induce the vascular steal phenomenon, i.e. the shunting of blood from the ischemic to the normally perfused areas. It is conceivable, therefore, that vasoconstrictors may improve in the opposite way, reducing the blood...
