Abstract

Abstract Lumbar sympathectomy is a valuable palliative procedure in the treatment of selected cases of peripheral vascular disease. Clinical evaluation, plus objective and subjective response to lumbar sympathetic block, is helpful in selecting patients who will probably be helped by lumbar sympathectomy. Patients may have improvement of symptoms following lumbar sympathectomy but recurrence may occur later as the arteriosclerotic disease progresses. The results in a series of 138 sympathectomies in 100 patients are reported.
