Tromboangeítis obliterante

La tromboangeítis obliterante es un trastorno que conduce a la obstrucción de los vasos sanguíneos de las manos y de los pies. Los vasos sanguíneos se contraen o se obstruyen totalmente a causa de la inflamación y de los coágulos, lo cual reduce la irrigación sanguínea a los tejidos. Este trastorno afecta casi siempre a los hombres entre los 20 y 40 años con historia de fumadores o consumidores de tabaco.
