There are two important enfermedar between TAO and other arteritides — the absence of positive serological markers of inflammation and the nonexistence of autoantibodies.

Thromboangiitis obliterans

However, knowledge about immunological aspects involved in the progression of vascular tissue inflammation, and consequently, the evolution of enfernedad disease, is still limited. The angiographic findings in patients with TAO, although considered by some investigators to be pathognomonic, are not adequate to make a diagnosis, and their sensitivity and specificity are not high enough to be considered the gold standard.

Peripheral pulses are diminished or absent. Despite the clear presence of inflammation in this disorder, anti-inflammatory agents such as corticosteroids have not been shown to be beneficial in healing, but do have significant anti-inflammatory and pain relief qualities in low dosage intermittent form. The results of an European study that compared two doses of oral iloprost with a placebo were less impressive Leukocyte subpopulations and circulating immune complexes.

The incidence of TAO has decreased in men, despite the relative increase in the number of female cases due to the increasing number of female smokers Thromboses are often occlusive and sometimes display moderate, nonspecific inflammatory infiltrate, consisting mostly of polymorphonuclear leukocytes, mononuclear cells and rare multinuclear giant cells.

Instant Diagnosis and Treatment.

Vascular lesions may trigger the secretion of TNF-alpha by inflammatory cells and express intercellular adhesion molecule 1- vascular cell adhesion molecule and E-selectin-favouring leukocyte adherence. Peripheral endothelium-dependent vasodilation is impaired in the nondiseased limbs of patients with TAO, and this type of vascular dysfunction may contribute to such characteristics as segmental proliferative lesions or thrombus formation in the peripheral vessels There is a recurrent acute and chronic inflammation and thrombosis of arteries and veins of the hands and feet.


Aortoiliac occlusive disease Degos disease Erythromelalgia Fibromuscular dysplasia Raynaud’s phenomenon. A selective CB1 antagonist. Most patients with TAO have hypersensitivity to extracts of tobacco. Another factor of vascular injury is changes in the balance of prostacyclin I2 and thromboxane A2, which can further accelerate platelet aggregation causing spasms of the arterioles 15 New aspects of prostaglandin E1 therapeutic influence in thromboangiitis obliterans.
