Blood flow in the hands of a predefined homogeneous systemic sclerosis population: the presence of digital ulcers (DUs) and the improvement with bosentan.

 

No relationship was found between blood flow in the hands and the presence of DUs. After 12 weeks of bosentan treatment, blood flow had increased in the SSc patients but had not normalized to that of healthy subjects. PubMed, Rheumatology, 2014 Aug 22.
