Epidural spinal cord stimulation (ESCS) has been suggested as a method to improve microcirculatory blood flow and to reduce the amputation rate in vascular patients. We studied the effects of ESCS on microcirculatory blood flow in 237 patients with nonreconstructible peripheral arterial occlusive disease. Clinical status was classified as Fontaine Stage 3… CONTINUE READING
