Description

This book presents the most up-to-date knowledge concerning Raynaud's disease, an autoimmune disorder distinguished by well-demarcated blanching or cyanosis of one or more digits on exposure to cold, that occurs in episodic attacks. Especially common among young women, researchers estimate that the phenomenon may affect up to 10% of the female population. The volume provides coverage of the disease as a primary illness and as the secondary result of another disorder. The only available text on Raynaud's, the book includes a comprehensive discussion of the physiology of finger blood flow, and coverage of both old and new treatment modalities. Readers will find full information on the anatomy of the disease, the clinical picture, prevalence, diagnosis, prognosis, pathology, pathophysiology, and the author's personal treatment preferences, which are backed by 30 years of professional experience with peripheral vascular diseases.show more
