Caption: Buerger's Disease. Coloured angiogram of a heavy smoker's right hand showing decreased blood flow to the vessels in the hand (ischemia). Blood flow to the feet can also become disrupted. Eventually, ulcers and gangrene develop. However, Buerger's Disease only affects the hands and feet; organs such as the lungs, kidneys and brain remain unaffected. The reason for the confinement of ischemia to the extremeties is unknown. An angiogram is produced by taking an X-ray of tissue containing arteries filled with a radio-contrast substance, such as barium sulfate.
