Here (vide supra) (Thayer), the palpable arteries do appear to be sclerosed permanently.
The glomeruli stand out as whitish dots and the sclerosed arteries are easily recognized, as their walls are much thickened.
To infer the stage of the disease from the feeling of the sclerosed artery, may lead to serious mistakes.
When the arteries are sclerosed, they are less elastic and the blood supply is, therefore, less easily regulated.
The framework of the bone is rarefied in the area immediately involved, and sclerosed in the parts beyond.
sclerosed foci, which form sequestra, are comparatively common (Fig. 123).
In cases where the arteries are so sclerosed that they feel like pipe stems there may be an actual decrease in the blood pressure.
In half the cases the radial artery was sclerosed; in the majority the tension was not increased.
It will restore an inflamed mucous membrane to its normal condition, except where the membrane is sclerosed or atrophied.
But when the radials are sclerosed, it is usually the case that similar changes exist in other parts.
