Abstract

Thromboangiitis obliteration (TAO; Buerger's disease) is a relatively rare and obstructive inflammatory disease of peripheral blood vessels, the cause of which has not yet been adequately investigated. The diagnosis is based on clinical criteria such as smoking history, ischemic manifestations in the lower limbs, auto-immune diseases and clotting conditions. Treatment involves both surgical and non-surgical methods. The most important treatment procedure to prevent amputation is complete abstinence from smoking. This paper summarizes the characteristics of the disease, its clinical features, and its diagnostic and therapeutic approaches, with a focus on novel treatment options, such as stem cell-derived therapies.
