In extremity ischaemia, the most common cause of occlusion or narrowing of the arteries is atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries), thrombus (blood clot), Buerger’s disease and arterial vasoconstriction due to damage to the autonomic nerves that regulate the vascular lumen.
The main risk factors for lower extremity ischaemia are smoking, lack of exercise, increased age, mental stress, obesity, hypercholesterolemia, hypertension, diabetes and others.
The condition requires professional vascular examination and early initiation of treatment according to the stage and location of the lower extremity ischaemia – elimination of risk factors, changing exercise procedures, vasodilatory therapy, anticoagulant therapy, up to surgical intervention on the affected extremity.
Read the results of the following clinical studies that demonstrate the success rate of low-frequency pulsed magnetic therapy in treatment of this condition.
