Nailfold Capillaroscopy

Recommended Posts

Heidi,

Thanks. I think I have looked in all those links and if there is a picture that shows anything I didn't find it. That was why I resorted to the posts. I see so much on the subject but have not been able to get an eye for what I am looking for.

Hi Betty ,

Gareth's rheumatologist checked G's fingers for Nailfold cappillaries. All he did was put some clear gel on the top of his fingers and looked with the same light that he uses to check ears/mouth. He said G's looked okay. He drew out a design on paper. If the cappillaries are normal he said they should look like consistent 'lines' lllllllllllllll. If they are abnormal, then some 'lines' are missing.....ll ll llll l ll.....indicating problems in the vessels. Not sure if that is what you are asking about.

Take care, Everyone.

Margaret

Heidi ,

 

Wow...those pictures weren't anything like the doctor explained. I think sometimes the doctors wrongly assume we have no brains at all. Or....maybe they are just so use to putting everything in terms that they 'think' the normal population will understand!!! Great site.....thanks!!!
