Buerger's disease, also known as thromboangiitis obliterans, is a rare condition that inflames the arteries and the veins in the arms and legs.
Buerger's disease, also called thromboangiitis obliterans, is a recurrent and an uncommon vaso-occlusive inflammatory disease, which typically affects small and medium-sized arteries, veins and nerves of the upper and lower extremities.
He was previously treated as presumed thromboangiitis obliterans based on the ischemic digit and history of heavy smoking.
BANGALORE, India, June 1, 2015--Stempeutics Research said that the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has granted Orphan Drug Designation for its drug Stempeucel for the treatment of thromboangiitis obliterans, a rare and severe disease affecting the blood vessels of the legs.
The company said Stempeucel will be used for the treatment of Thromboangiitis Obliterans (TAO), a recurring progressive inflammation and thrombosis (clotting) of small and medium arteries and veins of the feet.
Olin JW Thromboangiitis obliterans (Buerger's disease).
As in many other rather uncommon diseases, the diagnosis of PV may be overlooked unless it is explicitly considered, and it is likely that many cases are never correctly diagnosed but rather masquerade under the diagnosis of various types of peripheral vascular disease including thromboangiitis obliterans (Burger's disease), atypical erythromelalgia, or hypertension.
Absolute contraindications include an inadequate circulation to the extremity, Raynaud syndrome, thromboangiitis obliterans (Buerger disease), full-thickness burn over insertion site and skin infection over insertion site; whereas uncontrolled coagulopathy, systemic anticoagulation, inadequate collateral flow from ulnar artery on Allen test and atherosclerosis are its relative contra-indications2,3.
A notation is that it also acts against such vascular diseases as thromboangiitis obliterans, or Buerger's disease, and perhaps against arteriosclerosis--a potential option against angioplasty or heart bypass surgery.
