Impedance plethysmographic observations have been compared with arteriographic findings in 216 patients with peripheral arterial occlusive diseases. Impedance plethysmographic diagnosis in these patients was obtained by Parulkar's method without apriori knowledge of arteriographic diagnosis. But for minor discrepancy in the anatomical location of the block in few patients, impedance plethysmographic observations correlated very well with arteriographic findings. Impedance plethysmographic diagnosis was found to be correct in 312, wrong in 53, false negative in 8 limbs respectively, yielding a sensitivity of 97.5% and specificity of 98.1% of this technique.
