ABSTRACT
The antivasoconstrictor activity of the drugs cinnarizine and flunarizine is considered in relation to their inhibitory action on calcium ion flux mechanisms. Their clinical efficacy in peripheral vascular disease is reviewed, and the possible mode of action of the two drugs is discussed in relation to their described pharmacologic effects.
