The Authors examine the effects of vascular barogymnastics, to which patients suffering from AOCP, at the second stage according to Fontaine's scale, have been submitted. The dynamic evaluations made before and after the therapeutic course show some significant changes in the motion performances as well as in the circulation indexes. In the light of the present knowledge, no sure opinion could be given on the biological mechanism of barogymanistics. It can merely be presumed that the increased stroke volume (due to the increase of the blood volume going back to the heart) might be the factor which induces an improvement of the peripheral perfusion.
