During the last decade rapid strides have been made in the medical and surgical therapy of peripheral vascular disease. It has therefore become increasingly important to obtain accurate and objective information concerning the state of the peripheral circulation before and after various types of therapy. Ideally, this information should be objective, complete, permanent, accurate, and obtainable at desired intervals without mortality or morbidity secondary to the technics employed.
The purpose of this review is to describe a practical laboratory approach to the study of peripheral vascular functions as an aid in the diagnosis and treatment of the peripheral vascular diseases.
