SIMULTANEOUSLY AFFECTING CORONARY, CEREBRAL AND PERIPHERAL VASCULAR BEDS

P.Yu. Yudin, V.E. Komrakov, O.A. Grusov

Obliterative thromboangiitis is rather difficult to diagnose, excepting cases of classical "Buerger" form which is characterized by typical migrating saphenous phlebitis [1]. Clinical and anamnestic information concerning gender of a patient, age, localization and asymmetry of arterial limb lesions, smoking habit, absence of atherogenic factors appear to be insufficient for preoperative diagnosis. In some cases diagnostic examination enables only to propose the severity index of arterial insufficiency in coronary and cerebral beds as well as of chronic limb ischemia. In this case it is morphological investigation of surgical specimen that helps to establish final diagnosis [2].
