Vasomotor Responses in the Extremities of Subjects with Various Neurologic Lesions
I. Reflex Responses to Warming
Vascular responses to warming were studied in hemiplegic patients and after sympathectomy, using venous occlusion plethysmography of foot and leg. Comparisons were made with corresponding age groups. The pattern of response was essentially unchanged in hemiplegic patients, but was altered substantially where sympathetic pathways had been interrupted.
