Subclinical Measures of Peripheral Atherosclerosis and the Risk of New-Onset Atrial Fib...
Journal of the American Heart Association; Geurts S, Brunborg C et. al.

Jan 1st, 2022 - Background Limited population-based data on the (sex-specific) link between subclinical measures of peripheral atherosclerosis and new-onset atrial fibrillation (AF) exist. Methods and Results Subclinical measures of peripheral atherosclerosis inc...

Systematic review and meta-analysis of drug-coated balloon for in-stent restenosis in f...
Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology : JVIR; Zhen Y, Ren H et. al.

Dec 17th, 2021 - To evaluate the role of drug-coated balloon (DCB) angioplasty for in-stent restenosis (ISR) in femoropopliteal artery disease. Cochrane Library, Embase, and PubMed were searched without language restriction from inception to May 10, 2020.The endpo...

Positive Correlation of Serum Resistin Level with Peripheral Artery Disease in Patients...
International Journal of Environmental Research and Publi... Ng XN, Tang CC et. al.

Dec 11th, 2021 - Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is associated with higher risk of cardiovascular disease-related ischemic events, which includes peripheral arterial disease (PAD). PAD is a strong predictor of future cardiovascular events, which can cause significant...

Cardiac and vascular features of arterial and venous primary antiphospholipid syndrome....
Thrombosis Research; Bucci T, Ames PRJ et. al.

Dec 11th, 2021 - Patients with primary antiphospholipid syndrome (PAPS) may suffer from venous and/or arterial thrombosis, but studies addressing eventual clinical and laboratory features that may discriminate between arterial thromboembolism (ATE) from venous thr...

The Role of Cardio-Ankle Vascular Index as a Predictor of Mortality in Patients on Main...
Vascular Health and Risk Management; Murakami K, Inayama E et. al.

Dec 10th, 2021 - Mortality rate of maintenance hemodialysis patients is known to be high. Cardio-ankle vascular index (CAVI) is an index reflecting the proper stiffness of the arterial tree from the origin of the aorta to the ankle. We aimed to clarify the utility...

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...

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...
