Internal and Emergency Medicine; Manfredini F, Traina L et. al.

Sep 10th, 2021 - In patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD), supervised exercise at near-moderate pain improves walking ability but not ankle-brachial index (ABI) values. In a retrospective observational study, we determined vascular and functional effects o...

Upstroke time as a marker of atherosclerosis in patients with diabetes mellitus who hav...
Journal of Diabetes and Its Complications; Maruhashi T, Kajikawa M et. al.

Sep 6th, 2021 - We measured upstroke time in 509 patients with diabetes who had a normal ankle-brachial index (ABI) (1.00 ≤ ABI ≤ 1.40) (443 men and 66 women; mean age: 67.6 ± 10.8 years). The prevalence of cardiovascular disease was significantly higher in patie...

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...

Abnormal Postexercise Ankle-Brachial Index Associated With Increased Incidence of Revascularization

Aug 17th, 2015 - CLEVELAND, OH — Postexercise ankle-brachial index (ABI) may be a useful predictor of CV outcomes in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD), including those with a normal resting ABI, suggests new research[1]. A retrospective study of more t...
