In vivo study of skin mechanical properties in Raynaud's phenomenon (RP). Mechanical properties of the skin in patients with suspected secondary RP significantly differ from these in patients with primary RP and resemble those in patients with edematous phase of scleroderma. Our findings suggest that the non-invasive measurements of skin elasticity could be helpful in identifying patients with RP at risk of developing SSc. PubMed. Skin Res Technol. 2007 Feb;13(1):91-4.
