Abstract

Objective: To analyze effects of the Endoscopic Thoracic Sympathectomy (ETS), Autologous Bone Marrow Monocytes Transplantation (ABMMT) and the combination of these procedures as ultimate treatment for patients with Raynaud’s disease.
Background: ETS was demonstrated to be effective in patients with Raynaud phenomenon and ABMMT was shown efficacious in upper extremities ischemia, such as thromboangiitis obliterans (Buerger’s disease). The combination of these two procedures is not described in the literature until now. Patients and
Methods: From January 2014 to December 2016, 60 patients with Raynaud’s phenomenon were included in this prospective study. Patients are divided into three groups. Patients in group 1 received ETS. Patients in group 2 were treated with ABMMT and patients in group 3 received the combination of ETS and ABMMT. Short-and long-term results were reviewed.
Results: After a median follow-up of 8 months, patients in group3 had a significant lesser RP attacks compared to the other groups (group 1; 70.0%, group 2; 45.0%, group 3; 25.0%; p<0.05).
Conclusion: ETS combined with ABMMT may increase long-term results in patients with Raynaud’s disease.
