Diseases of the cardiovascular system

  • Henry Marx


The long-term treatment of cardiac patients with procaine (usually for at least eighteen months) will often yield satisfactory results. Procaine has a vasodilatory effect, causing blood vessels to dilate, thus lowering the blood pressure. Arteriosclerotic conditions are improved, angina pectoris attacks diminish, heart thromboses show signs of faster healing. Intravenous injections have a favorable effect on cerebral spasms in older people; phlebitis, the recurrent inflammation of a vein, is easily overcome, and disturbances in peripheral circulation (after intra-arterial injections) are lessened.
