The microcirculation of LLP can be studied 'in vivo' with the help of videocapillaroscopy, and it could be an indicator of the evolutionary condition of LLP, useful for the evaluation of the evolution or regression phases of the disease.
Microvascular dysfunction: a direct link among BMI, waist circumference and glucose homeostasis in young overweight/obese normoglycemic women?
Capillary recruitment is impaired in obesity, possibly worsening glucose and insulin availability to target organs.
Nailfold capillaroscopic findings in systemic sclerosis related lung fibrosis and in idiopathic lung fibrosis.
An altered nailfold capillaroscopic pattern in IPF, as observed in this study, seems to support the hypothesis that a systemic vascular dysfunction in these patients plays a role in the pathogenesis of the disease.
