A combined study of microcirculation hemodynamics in vivo and blood rheometry has been carried out in patients with scleroderma compared to primary Raynaud's phenomenon (PRP) and healthy controls (HC). Laser Doppler perfusion imaging was used to assess superficial skin blood flow in the fingers before, during and after local cold exposure. Blood viscosity was measured at 19 and 37 degrees C. Dynamic and transient flows were also investigated. The scleroderma group showed a significantly lower… CONTINUE READING
