abstract

  • Five years after surgery the echo-Doppler characteristics of the forearm circulation and the transcutaneous oxygen and carbon dioxide pressures of the operated and control arm were determined at rest and under conditions of hand exercise in 34 patients who received a radial artery graft for myocardial revascularization. Doppler measurements showed the ulnar compensation to radial artery removal, and transcutaneous measurements demonstrated a moderate degree of exercise-induced hand ischemia on the operated site.
