Nailfold capillaroscopy (NFC) abnormalities as predictors of mortality in patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc).

 

Avascular scores higher than 1.5 at NFC was an independent predictor of death in SSc, suggesting that NFC can be useful for predicting SSc outcome. PubMed Clin Exp Rheumatol. 2013 Jan 16. (Also see: Nailfold capillaroscopy and Secondary Raynaud's)
