Finger pulp blood flow in systemic sclerosis patients with digital ulcers treated with sympathetic blockade
We aim to study impact of Botulinum toxin A (Botox®) and plexus blockade on blood perfusion of the finger, the effect of Botox as treatment on ulcer healing and recurrence. Measurements of skin perfusion are made using Laser Doppler flux immediate before treatment, and 4 weeks after treatment.
