  1. Digital arterial responsiveness to cold in healthy men, vibration white finger and primary Raynaud's phenomenon.

    Article - En anglais

    Finger systolic pressure (FSP) was measured during a standardized cold test in 291 healthy male subjects divided into five age groups.

    The age groups showed no difference in the change in FSP (FSP%) after cold provocation at 15 and 10oC.

    In the entire population, the lower normal limits of FSP% were estimated as 76% at 15oC and 63% at 10oC.

    When a discriminating threshold of FSP%10o<60% was applied to the results of the cold test of 31 referents, 65 chain saw workers with or without vibration-induced white finger (VWF), and 20 male patients with primary Raynaud's phenomenon (PRP), the sensitivity of the test to detect digital vasospasm was 84% for VWF and 95% for PRP.
