Description and Pathogenesis of Symptoms and Signs of Arterial Insufficiency

  • David I. Abramson
  • Donald S. Miller


This chapter deals primarily with a description of, and the abnormal mechanisms responsible for, the more common symptoms and, to a lesser extent, the typical signs found in chronic and acute arterial disorders of the limbs. Also included is the differentiation of the complaints from those of musculoskeletal or related origin which mimic them.
