Limb arteriovenous shunting following sympathetic denervation

John Delaney, Jon Scarpino

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The fact that sympathetic denervation leads to enhancement of shunting from arterioles to superficial veins may explain the higher skin temperature seen after sympathectomy. After denervation some of the limb blood flow passes through channels that do not contribute to tissue nutrition.
