Polyvascular Subclinical Atherosclerosis: Correlation Between Ankle Brachial Index and ...
Angiology Vila MDM, Igual L et. al.

Jun 28th, 2022 - We assessed the correlation between the biomarkers of lower limb atherosclerosis (eg, ankle-brachial index [ABI]) and of carotid atherosclerosis (eg, common carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) and presence of atherosclerotic plaque) in a populati...

Characteristics of four-limb blood pressure and brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity in C...
Blood Pressure; Chen Y, Dong H et. al.

Jun 24th, 2022 - Purpose: Takayasu arteritis (TA) is a rare disease, which is frequently misdiagnosed or its diagnosis can be missed. This study aimed to analyse the characteristics of four-limb blood pressure (4LBP) and brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) ...

Predictive Value of Galectin-3 and Brachial-Ankle Pulse Wave Velocity for Coronary Arte...
International Journal of Clinical Practice; Tian L, Ding F et. al.

Jun 11th, 2022 - To study the predictive value for coronary artery calcification (CAC) of plasma galectin-3 and brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (BaPWV) in coronary arteriography (CAG) patients. Patients who received coronary arteriography (CAG) examination were...

Drug eluting versus covered stent for femoropopliteal artery lesions: Results of the UL...
European Journal of Vascular and endoVascular Surgery : T... Ichihashi S, Takahara M et. al.

Jun 8th, 2022 - Stent grafts (SG) and drug eluting stents (DES) have emerged to combat intimal hyperplasia. It remains unclear which type of stent can offer superior outcomes in femoropopliteal (FP) arterial lesions. This study compared the clinical data between ...

AHA highlights limitations of perfusion testing for critical limb ischemia
Mark S. Lesney, MDedge News

Aug 12th, 2019 - A new assessment statement from the American Heart Association reviewed the strengths and limitations of current imaging techniques for critical limb ischemia (CLI), the severest form of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). The main techniques discu.

Ask patients, not devices, about impact of PAD
Mark S. Lesney

Apr 24th, 2019 - The ankle-brachial index (ABI) is a poor indicator of patient-centered and clinician-based evaluations of functional status in patients with intermittent claudication, according to the results of PORTRAIT, a prospective observational study of pati.

USPSTF Stays Neutral on Global ABI Testing in Asymptomatic PAD

Jul 12th, 2018 - There is still not enough evidence to recommend for or against using the ankle-brachial index (ABI) test to screen for peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in adults without symptoms, such as claudication in the lower leg, a US Preventive Services Ta...

Post-Exercise ABI Prognostic for Limb Interventions

Aug 17th, 2015 - Abnormal ankle-brachial index (ABI) after exercising is useful in prognosis for lower limb blockages, especially when resting ABI is normal, a retrospective study determined. People with abnormal ABI at both rest and after exercise were at 59% ele...
