This is just the third time our international community has formally met.
Associations of nailfold capillary abnormalities and immunological markers in early Raynaud's phenomenon
Nailfold capillaroscopy (NC) and laboratory tests for antinuclear antibodies (ANA) are routinely used in parallel for detection of emerging connective tissue disease (CTD) in patients with Raynaud's phenomenon (RP).
Effect of capillaroscopic patterns on the pulse oximetry measurements in systemic sclerosis patients
Nailfold capillaroscopy is a simple method for determining microvascular damage in systemic sclerosis (SSc). The pulse oximeter is a noninvasive tool that is used to estimate a patient's arterial blood oxygen saturation.
Impairment of capillaries permeability and changes of microcirculation are associated with inflammatory arthritis.
Prospective capillaroscopy-based study on transition from primary to secondary Raynaud's phenomenon: preliminary results
The objective of this prospective study was to investigate the transition from primary (PRP) to secondary (SRP) Raynaud's phenomenon (RP), in a large cohort of patients affected by isolated RP.
