ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the evaluation of the method in analyzing peripheral vasodilation. In arterial disorders of the extremities it is characteristic that the blood supply to the limbs is impaired. Less blood means less oxygen, which results in malnutrition to the tissues and accumulation of waste products. These disturbances may result organic obstruction of the vessels secondary to obliterative disease or from changes in vasomotor tone leading to vasoconstriction. Obliterative disease and vasoconstriction are often associated. The principal cause of obliterative disease is arteriosclerosis; thromboangiitis obliterans in much less common.
