Acting directly on the vascular smooth muscle by releasing NO, transdermal nitroglycerine (NG) induces not only general vasodilator effects, profitable for heart pathology, but also local effects favourable in various non-cardiac diseases: peripheral vascular, dermatologic, rheumatic, surgical. The local effects of NG thus reveal a new therapeutic aspect of this drug known for over a century, maybe as important as those represented by the classical effects of NG in heart diseases.
