A number of experimental and clinical studies have shown that early regional surgical sympathectomy decreases tissue loss following frostbite, presumably by relieving vasospasm and increasing blood flow. This study was performed to determine if a decrease in tissue loss following a standard cold injury could be obtained following a regional "medical(More)
