Ankle brachial index (ABI) and brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) are widely used noninvasive modalities to evaluate atherosclerosis. Recently, evidence has increased supporting the use of ABI and baPWV as markers of cerebrovascular disease. This study sought to examine the relationship between ABI and baPWV with ischemic stroke. This study also aimed to determine which pathogenic mechanism, large artery disease (LAD) or small vessel disease (SVD), is related to ABI or baPWV. Retrospectively, 121 patients with ischemic stroke and 38 subjects with no obvious ischemic stroke history were recruited. First, ABI and baPWV were compared between the groups. Then, within the stroke group, the relevance of ABI and baPWV with regard to SVD and LAD, which were classified by brain magnetic resonance image (MRI) and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) or computed tomography angiography (CTA) findings, was assessed. The baPWV was higher in the stroke group than non-stroke group (1,944.18土416.6 cm/s ...

Background and purpose: Routine screening for asymptomatic cranial-carotid stenosis (ACCS) is controversial and recommendation in clinical practice is vague. The ankle-brachial index (ABI) is reported as a predictor for cardiovascular disease. However, there is a scarcity of data about the association between abnormal ABI and ACCS. A population-based cross-sectional study was conducted to explore the relationship between ABI and ACCS. Methods: A sample of 5440 Chinese adults aged 40-94 years old was recruited from 2010 to 2011. The ABI was measured using a portable Doppler device and ACCS was evaluated by bilateral carotid duplex ultrasound and portable examination devices. A logistic regression model was used to analyse the association between ABI and ACCS after adjusting for potential confounding factors. Results: A low ABI was associated with ACCS [odds ratio (OR) 1.95, 95% confidence interval (CI) 1.42-2.67] after adjusting for potential confounders. When the data were stratified by age and sex, the
OBJECTIVES: The purpose of this study was to examine the association of both a low and a high ankle-brachial index (ABI) with incident cardiovascular events in a multiethnic cohort.. BACKGROUND: Abnormal ABIs, both low and high, are associated with elevated cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk. However, it is unknown whether this association is consistent across different ethnic groups, and whether it is independent of both newer biomarkers and other measures of subclinical atherosclerotic CVD.. METHODS: A total of 6,647 non-Hispanic white, African-American, Hispanic, and Chinese men and women age 45 to 84 years from free-living populations in 6 U.S. field centers and free of clinical CVD at baseline had extensive measures of traditional and newer biomarker risk factors, and measures of subclinical CVD, including the ABI. Incident CVD, defined as coronary disease, stroke, or other atherosclerotic CVD death, was determined over a mean follow-up of 5.3 years.. RESULTS: Both a low (,1.00) and a high ...
In this large study of patients with type 2 diabetes and CAD, we found a high prevalence of obstructive PAD and arterial stiffness and identified risk factors for an abnormal ABI. A longer duration of type 2 diabetes and hypertension were independently associated with a low ABI and NC artery. Certain factors, however, were associated only with a low ABI, such as older age, female sex, black race, current smoking, and higher CRP level. A higher prevalence of PAD among women and blacks has been observed and does not appear to be due to known atherosclerosis risk factors (3,4). Our study extends these findings to patients with type 2 diabetes and CAD. The higher prevalence of PAD in women and blacks may be due to biologic or social differences, as well as slightly lower normal ABI values in these populations (5). Older age, smoking, and CRP, similar to our study, are associated with the presence or progression of PAD in patients with diabetes (6,7).. Similar to a low ABI, a high ABI or NC artery is ...

Our findings indicate that among patients with stroke and those with TIA, 26% are found to have asymptomatic PAD as detected by ABI measurement. The prevalence noted was lower than prior studies that found abnormal ABI in 33.5% to 66.7% of patients with cerebrovascular disease. However, the earlier studies did not exclude patients with symptomatic PAD and hence provides estimates of PAD, both symptomatic and asymptomatic.26,27⇓ In our study, including the 8 patients we excluded from enrollment because of symptomatic PAD, our estimate of combined PAD is 31%, comparable to that reported in the first report.26 The second report noted an abnormal ABI in more than half of all patients, much higher than that noted in our study.27 This may be attributed to selection of sicker patients with stroke presenting to the stroke units. Both studies have reported a high rate of recurrent vascular events in patients with abnormal ABI. Our study, although evaluating fewer patients presenting to a single center, ...

Arterial calcifications are more prevalent and more severe in patients with diabetes than in non-diabetics as assessed by a retrospective analysis of 326 plain radiographs of the lower extremities. A more modern retrospective study analyzed 136 randomly selected angiograms and compared peripheral artery disease distribution in diabetics and non-diabetics. Profunda femoris artery and below knee involvement were more prevalent in diabetics. Although ABI >1.3 is common in diabetics, no correlation with ABI was reported in this study. A retrospective study that examined 174 diabetics and 53 control subjects found discrepancy between ABI and toe brachial pressure among diabetics with ABI >1.3, concluding that distal calcifications made the ABI inaccurate. Another retrospective analysis attempted to correlate high ABI with plaque morphology and distribution as assessed by duplex in 184 diabetic patients. In 54 patients with elevated ABI, plaque was found to exist in small collections, distributed ...
The ankle-brachial index (ABI) is a simple, rapid, non-radiological, non-invasive and highly valuable test that can be easily performed in the clinic to analyse your risk of peripheral artery disease (PAD).. What is Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)?. PAD is a serious condition where the arteries of the legs (lower extremities) are narrowed or blocked due to build-up of cholesterol in the arterial walls resulting in poor circulation, (i.e. restriction of flow of oxygen-rich blood). People with PAD are at increased risk of heart attack and stroke and both cardiovascular and overall mortality. This condition may occur in about 4% in the healthy adult population over the age of. 40 years old to as high as 30% in patients in patients who. undergo screening in a primary care setting with diabetes,. cigarette smoking and age as risk factors.. How is ABI obtained?. ABI is derived from ratio of measuring and comparing the systolic blood pressure of the lower extremities (leg) at the ankle region to the ...

Randhawa et al1 reported on the sensitivity of toe brachial index and pulse volume recordings (PVR) in diagnosing occluded or severely stenotic tibial arteries in patients with a clinical diagnosis of critical limb ischemia (CLI). The authors retrospectively identified 2 cohorts of patients with CLI categorized according to the Rutherford classification (Rutherford class IV-VI) with either compressible or noncompressible tibial arteries as determined by measurement of systolic ankle pressures and ankle brachial index. They compared results of noninvasive testing to angiographic findings and concluded that unlike toe brachial index, PVR is insensitive … ...
Peripheral Artery Disease is a narrowing of the peripheral arteries, most commonly in the arteries of the legs and pelvis. When you develop PAD, your extremities dont receive enough blood flow to keep up with demand. This causes symptoms, most notably leg pain when walking. Peripheral artery disease is also likely to be a sign of a more widespread accumulation of fatty deposits in your arteries (atherosclerosis). This condition may be reducing blood flow to your heart and brain, as well as your legs.. ...

Buy Abis Online! Abis is a medicine used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). If you have high blood pressure, taking Abis helps prevent future heart disease, heart attacks and strokes. Abis is also used to prevent chest pain caused by heart disease (angina). This medicine is only available on prescription. It comes as tablets or as a liquid to swallow.
Toe Brachial Index (TBI) is defined as the ratio between the systolic blood pressure in the right or left toe and the higher systolic pressure in both arms.
Objective To evaluate the effect of integrative medical therapy on lower limb post-angioplasty arterial restenosis in diabetes patients. Methods Thirty-six patients with lower limb diabetic arterial disease of Fontaine Ⅲ/Ⅳ stage after successful baloon angioplasty were assigned randomly and equally to two groups,the control group and the treatment group,both were treated with basic therapy for 3 months,but Chinese drugs were given to the treatment group additionally. Level of acroesthesia was determined before and after treatment with simplified McGill pain questionnaire (SF-MPQ) scoring,ankle brachial index (ABI),toe brachial index (TBI),mean flow velocity of dorsal artery (MDA) and tibial artery (MTA) were measured by ultrasound Doppler meter,and blood preparation was determined. Moreover,the ulcer remission rate,ulcer cure rate,restenosis rate,and amputation rate were determined in the 6-month and 12-month follow-up studies. Results Significant improvements of ABI,TBI,MDA and MTA,as well as on
Peripheral arteries deliver oxygen-rich blood to the legs and feet. Over time, artery walls may thicken as they build up with plaque (a fatlike substance). As plaque builds up in an artery, blood flow can be reduced or even blocked, causing peripheral artery disease.
Phase 3. DESCRIPTION:. Northwestern University researchers are seeking 39 people with peripheral artery disease (PAD) who do not have critical limb ischemia for an investigatory therapy. The VM202 therapy is a loop of DNA, or plasmid, that encodes for hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) which has neurotrophic and angiogenic properties. By prompting cells to take in this DNA and express the growth factor, repairing the nerves and promoting arterial growth in the ischemic limb, the treatment aims to reduce pain, improve mobility, and observe muscle regeneration.. The investigatory drug is injected in calf skeletal muscle every 14 days for a total of four treatment days; however, a portion of participants will receive a placebo injection.. ...
The first step in diagnosing PAD is a physical examination to see if there are weak pulses in the legs. This can be done with the following test.7,8. Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI): This is a painless exam that compares the blood pressure in the feet to that in the arms to determine how well the blood is flowing. This is a quick and inexpensive test and can be done at the doctors office. Ankle pressure should be at least 90% of the arm pressure, but with severe narrowing it can be as low as 50%. The ABI result can help diagnose PAD. A normal resting ABI is 0.9 to 1.3. This means that the blood pressure at the ankle is the same or greater than the pressure at the arm and suggests that the person does not have significant narrowing or blockage of blood flow.. A resting ankle-brachial index of less than 0.9 is abnormal. If the ABI is 0.41 to 0.9, there is a chance of mild-to-moderate PAD. If the ABI is 0.4 or below, the person likely has severe PAD. If the ABI test result is abnormal, other tests must ...
If youve been diagnosed with peripheral artery disease (PAD), take care of your heart! You can do a lot to lower your risks for stroke and heart disease.. Treatment options include:. Lifestyle changes. Healthier habits always help. Become more physically active, eat a balanced diet and, if necessary, shoot for a healthier weight. You can improve your blood sugar, cholesterol and blood pressure numbers. If you smoke, quit! Schedule regular medical checkups so you can address risk factors promptly-before PAD progresses.. Medication. Medicines also can help. Drugs can lower your blood pressure and cholesterol to reduce your risk of atherosclerosis (plaque buildup that can lead to PAD) reduce high blood sugar (which can damage blood vessels) and reduce blood pressure. Your doctor also may recommend over-the-counter pain relievers or prescribe drugs to ease leg pain or help prevent blood clots from forming.. Procedures or surgery. Procedures can help improve blood circulation to your legs and make ...
Peripheral artery disease is caused by arteriosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries. This problem occurs when fatty material and a substance called plaque build up on the walls of your arteries. This causes the arteries to become narrower. The walls of the arteries also become stiffer and cannot widen (dilate) to allow greater blood flow when needed.. As a result, when the muscles of your legs are working harder (such as during exercise) they cannot get enough blood and oxygen. Eventually, there may not be enough blood and oxygen, even when the muscles are resting. This can cause pain, coldness and discoloration as well as possible ulcers and ultimately gangrene.. This is a common disorder that typically affects more men than women, especially over age 50. People are at higher risk if they have a history of:. ...
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), means that the narrowed arteries will reduce blood flow to limbs. This can decrease circulation and lead to the death of tissue.Dr. Digvijay Sharma elaborates some risk factors and symptoms of the disease.
peripheral artery disease, commonly referred to as PAD, is a disease that occurs when your arteries narrow, resulting in reduced blood flow to your limbs.
