The standardisation of manoeuvres to perform clinically discriminative microvascular flow reserve tests is still poorly developed, as well as the response analysis. The aim of this study was to establish a reproducible analysis method for the post-occlusive reactive hyperaemia (PORH) test measured using laser Doppler perfusion monitoring (LDPM). LDPM data were measured from the PORH response of 24 Fontaine class II-III peripheral atherosclerotic/arterial obstructive disease (PAOD) patients and… CONTINUE READING
