Abstract

Purpose of review: Nailfold capillary microscopy or capillaroscopy is an established clinical exam procedure for dermatologists and rheumatologists. It is essential in the examination of patients with Raynaud’s phenomenon.
Findings: A history of Raynaud’s phenomenon is an important symptom for vascular surgeons to elicit from patients presenting with digital ulcerations. If a history of Raynaud’s phenomenon is present then Nailfold capillaroscopy is an essential clinical exam skill to perform.
Summary: In this review, the applicability of capillaroscopy for personalized medicine to direct cost effective laboratory screening for vascular surgeons assessing patients with Raynaud’s phenomenon is discussed.
