My husband has scleroderma and we would like to know if anyone has ever had an Iloprost infusion.
He was told last week that he should have this but we are both unsure. It means going into Hope Hospital for about six to eight days.
Has anyone ever had this, and does it work? Thanks.
Webmaster's Note: In severe instances of Raynaud's, where gangrene or loss of a digit is possible, some doctors have had success with prostaglandin (Iloprost) infusions.
