Abstract

Many epidemiological studies have shown up the frequent association of ar terial hypertension (HT) with atherosclerosis of different localizations. How ever, many of the drugs used to treat HT are contraindicated in patients with peripheral vascular disease (PVD), because they cause unfavorable metabolic changes or vasoconstriction. The aim of the present study was to assess the effect of a proven hypotensive drug, captopril, on the peripheral circulation. The drug appeared to be effec tive in improving blood flow to lower limbs, prolonging the pain. Free interval and increasing the angle/arm arteral pressure index.
