ABSTRACT
This two-part study deals with the clinical use of an ECG-triggered venous occlusion plethysmograph, the "Periflow." This first part describes procedures for arterial and for venous examination. Methodologic and technological improvement over former VOP devices is indicated. And results of investigation on arterial pathology in 99 patients versus 76 normal subjects are evaluated. (Venous pathology will be treated in a second paper.) From this study it can be concluded that most significant information about arterial status is obtained by analyzing the time-related course ofa reactive hyperemia that has to clear off an experimentally induced arterial debt. The reliability of the qualitative diagnostic differentiation and of the quantitative assessment is determined by the proposed parameter handling in order to judge the method's suitability for objective diagnosis and follow-up of patients with peripheral vascular diseases.
