The heparin-induced extracorporeal low-density lipoprotein (LDL) precipitation (HELP) system is based on the fact that besides lipoproteins even fibrinogen, which seems to be a very important factor in pathogenesis of peripheral arterial disease, is precipitated by high-dose heparin at acid pH values. The elimination of excess fibrinogen and lipoproteins, in particular LDL, leads to a markedly improved microcirculation. The restoration of the latter obviously enabled us to perform limb-saving… Expand
