Oral capillaroscopy: our experience

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Capillaroscopy has now definitely become an important and indispensable exam in the area of diagnosing vasculopathies and in particular micro angiopathies. The type of damages connected to these anatomy pathologies regarding the actual micro vascular unit work in a functional pathogenic of an extreme importance, in conditioning the course and the eventual aggravation of micro angiopathies properly called vasculity and also of macro angiopaties. In all, this underlines the great importance achieved by using certain instrumental exams which complements the clinical research, exactly because of the valid elements which have been given for a complete and precise morphological valuation for the surrounding circulation conditions. Such techniques, like the laser Doppler or the pletismography do not let us express a prognostic verdict on eventual risks with tropic damages, which are instead valued directly on realistic times with the aid of oral capillary copy, of whose use has permitted new morphological and functional acquisitions.The un harmful, no-invocatory and easily repeatable test and its moderate cost, also allows us to monitor and up-date the future state of peripheral vasculopathies, as well as the efficiency of the medicines which have possibly been used
