Capillaroscopy in clinical practice
Nailfold videocapillaroscopy represents the safest, non invasive, less expensive and reliable method to analyze microvascular abnormalities in systemic sclerosis.
Since microvascular damage and dysfunction represent early markers of systemic sclerosis and are clinically mirrored by secondary Raynaud phenomenon, the diagnostic, prognostic and therapeutic implications of microvessel morphological analysis by nailfold videocapillaroscopy enables the best clinical management.¬ Read All
