Abstract

We evaluated the ability of intermittent venous occlusion to improve cutaneous circulation in patients with severe peripheral arterial occlusive disease. Fourteen patients with ischemic lower extremities had a pneumatic cuff placed around the thigh of an ischemic limb; intermittent inflation of this cuff produced a significant increase in the transcutaneous oxygen tension of the foot, suggesting that cutaneous blood flow had been improved.
