For the diagnosis, prognosis, and effective therapy of peripheral vascular disease it is essential to divide patients into two groups: (a) those whose symptoms are due to simple spasm with no, or at most slight, organic vascular obstruction; and (b) those whose symptoms are due primarily to advanced organic disease of the arteries. Recent advances in the surgery of the sympathetic nervous system have made it highly desirable to detect, early in the course of peripheral vascular disease, whether the flow of blood to an extremity is diminished by simple arterial spasm, or by obliterative structural disease of the arteries
