Capillaroscopy

Capillaroscopy is a method in vivo studies capillaries using a special microscope (capillaroscope). Typically explore the capillaries in the skin fold of the nail bed and the mucous membrane of the lower lip. The capillaroscopy revealed changes capillaries under different circulatory disorders of the peripheral sections of the vascular system of functional and organic origin (with hypertension, arteritis, heart failure). Method only complements the General clinical research.

Next to a thin narrow capillaries is dramatically enhanced; slow the blood flow. Right two capillary stromerova, in circumference edema, hemorrhage. Fig. 7. The same plot in Fig. 6.

Obliterating endarteritis. Polymorphism, functional aneurysm, swelling. Fig. 10. The same plot in Fig. 9 (12 days). The contours of capillaries clear. Apkaartnee hemorrhage. Aneurysm and swelling disappeared. Fig. I. Hypertension "pale" type. The capillaries of the nail folds finger brush. Fig. 12. Hypertension "crimson" type.

The capillaries of the mucous membrane of the lower lip: wide venous knee, extended venous plexus first and second order; color last purples cyanotic; color arterial knees capillary - Golden - red. Fig. 14. A mild form of vegetative dystonia. The capillaries of the mucous membrane of the lower lip almost normal. Fig. 15. The same case, as in Fig. 14, after a 15-minute load standing. Significant expansion of both knees capillaries, collective venules and venous plexus with increased volume. Color is more intense, the background is unclear.
