The article cites a study on controlled evaluation of drugs in chronic vascular disease. Evaluation of drugs in chronic vascular disease presents both problems and contradictions. One finds many reports supporting administration of vasoactive drugs in chronic vascular disease as well as some which find no positive value in the use of these drugs. Development of collaterals in chronic vascular disease has been shown to take place after administration of vasoactive substances. Finally, it was concluded that the current methods available in clinics cannot determine clearly and reproducibly areas of minimal perfusion.
