We have shown here that the prevalence of abnormal ABI among patients who had a significant CAD on coronary angiogram was 15.9% and that abnormal ABI in patients with significant CAD was associated with higher rates of adverse clinical outcomes over 3 years. Also, we could see a definite dose-response gradient between ABI values and adverse events. We could not determine whether abnormal ABI is a marker or cause of adverse outcomes, but our findings indicate that abnormal ABI among patients with significant CAD could predict 3-year adverse outcomes in a large observational cohort, independent of the severity of CAD.. In the present study, we found that patients who had significant CAD with abnormal ABI had higher incidences of cardiovascular events than those with normal ABI did. We hypothesize that abnormal ABI could increase risk, even in high-risk patients. Of the entire cohort, the abnormal ABI group showed higher adverse clinical events. Also, we analyzed using propensity-score matching due ...
How to Perform an Ankle Brachial Index Study (ABI) The Ankle Brachial Index (ABI) exam is the most simple and common test currently used to diagnose Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD).
The newest installment in the Videos in Clinical Medicine series- one of the most popular, subscriber-only multimedia features - is Ankle-Brachial Index for Assessment of Peripheral Arterial Disease. Although other methods exist to assess the peripheral vasculature more objectively, the ankle-brachial index represents a simple, reliable method for diagnosing peripheral arterial disease.. This video discusses the indications for ankle-brachial index and demonstrates how to perform this test. These peer-reviewed educational videos demonstrate procedural techniques performed by experienced physicians. Earlier, we featured videos on bone aspiration and biopsy, and blood-pressure measurement. All videos also include a PDF summary of the procedure that is useful for teaching or reference.

History: The Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) objectively assesses the lower extremity arterial perfusion. Correlation was used to find the correlation of serum hsCRP with the ABI in the two groups. Results: The ABI showed a significantly low value (P=0.035*) and the serum hsCRP showed a trend towards a significant increase (p = 0.069+) in the type2diabetics when Everolimus kinase activity assay compared with those in the normals. There is a significant adverse correlation between ABI and hsCRP in the sort 2 DM individuals (r=-0.560, p 0.001**). Nevertheless, such correlation had not been noticed in the standard subjects. Summary: As serum hsCRP can be connected with ABI in the type2 DM individuals, inflammation may are likely involved in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. solid class="kwd-name" Keywords: Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus, Ankle-brachial Index (ABI), Highly delicate C - reactive proteins (hsCRP), Peripheral arterial disease, Atherosclerosis Intro Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is among ...
Background- Several studies report a higher prevalence of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) among blacks. Some surveys report higher PAD rates in women. Almost all of them based their PAD definition on an ankle-brachial index (ABI) ,0.90. We hypothesized that beyond known disparities in risk factors levels contributing to different PAD prevalence in gender and ethnic subgroups, gender and ethnicity per se influence the normal ABI values, and an ABI threshold disregarding gender and ethnicity might partly contribute to prevalence differences.. Methods-In this cross-sectional study of the Multi-Ethnic Study of Athersoclerosis, we selected a subgroup of participants with unequivocally normal ABI (1.00-1.30), and free of any major PAD risk factor (smoking, diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension). In a linear model with ABI as the dependent variable, demographic, clinical and biological variables were introduced.. Results-Among 1775 healthy participants, there was no association between ABI and ...
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
The ankle-brachial index test is a painless exam that compares the blood pressure in the feet to the blood pressure in the arms to determine how well blood is flowing. This test is used to diagnose peripheral artery disease, or PAD, a condition that most often affects blood flow to the legs. The ankle-brachial index test takes only a few minutes and can be performed by a healthcare professional as part of a routine exam.. ...
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 ...
The ankle-brachial index test is one of the screening tools your doctor can use to detect peripheral artery disease. It is a quick, non-invasive test that compares the blood pressure measured at your ankle with your blood pressure measured at your arm.
This test is done by measuring blood pressure at the ankle and in the arm while a person is at rest. Some people also do an exercise test. In this case, the blood pressure measurements are repeated at both sites after a few minutes of walking on a treadmill.. The ankle-brachial index (ABI) result is used to predict the severity of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). A slight drop in your ABI with exercise means that you probably have PAD. This drop may be important, because PAD can be linked to a higher risk of heart attack or stroke.. ...
ABI (ANKLE BRACHIAL INDEX)ABI is a quick non-invasive way to assess your risk for peripheral vascular disease, a condition in which the arteries in your legs and ankles are narrowed. People with PVD are at higher risk for heart attack, stroke and poor circulation.. The ankle brachial index test compares your blood pressure measured at your ankles with your blood pressure at your arm. A low ABI number can indicate narrowing or blockage of the arteries in your legs, leading to circulatory problems, heart disease and stroke.. ...

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is atherosclerosis of blood vessels in the legs. Atherosclerosis causes narrowing or blockage of the vessels, resulting in low blood flow to the legs. Peripheral artery disease is diagnosed by using a test called the ankle-brachial index (ABI) to show that blood pressure in the lower leg is lower than blood pressure in the arm. Risk factors for PAD include smoking, high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, and diabetes. Peripheral artery disease may cause leg pain or heaviness that develops with walking and goes away with rest. The pain often limits the distance that people can walk. However, some people with PAD have no symptoms. For this reason, some medical experts believe that older adults should routinely have their ABI measured to screen for PAD. Screening is looking for a condition in people who have no symptoms. In addition, because people with PAD are at high risk for other conditions related to atherosclerosis, such as heart attack and stroke, some ...
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, ...
Data were obtained from 2006-2013 from the Catalan primary care systems clinical records database (SIDIAP). Patients aged 35-85 years with an ankle brachial index ≤0.95 and without clinically recognized cardiovascular disease (CVD) were included. Participants were categorized as statin non-users or new-users (first prescription or re-prescribed after at least 6 months) and matched 1:1 by inclusion date and propensity score for statin treatment. Conditional Cox proportional hazards modeling was used to compare the groups for the incidence of major adverse cardiac events (MACE: myocardial infarction, cardiac revascularization, and ischemic stroke) and all-cause mortality.. ...

Introduction: Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a risk factor for CAD events and foot complications in patients with type 2 diabetes (D). The Bypass Angioplasty Revascularization Investigation 2 Diabetes (BARI 2D) trial recently completed enrollment of 2368 patients with type 2 diabetes (D) and CAD. The exact prevalence and nature of PAD in D patients with CAD is not well established.. Method: We determined the prevalence of PAD using Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) in 2232 BARI 2D patients. ABIs were classified as; normal 0.91-1.3, low ,0.9 or high ,1.3.. Results: 1468 or 66% had a normal ABI. Low ABI was found in 430 or 19% and a high ABI in 180 or 8%. Compared to patients with a normal ABI, those with a low ABI were more likely to be female (38.4 vs. 28.5%, p,0.0001), older (63.4 vs. 61.8 years, p=0.001), African American (27.7 vs 15.4%, p,0001), have longer duration of known diabetes (11.8 vs. 10.3 years, p=0.002), and have a higher HbA1c (7.9 vs.7.7%, p=0.04).

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 ...

Only 4 studies used the NRI to determine whether adding the ABI to the FRS appropriately reclassifies persons into different risk categories (18, 26, 31, 33) (Table 4). Two of the 4 cohorts, the Rotterdam and ARIC cohorts, were included in the ABI Collaboration meta-analyses. The Rotterdam study (n = 5933) was most similar to ATP IIIs FRS in its definition of the intermediate category as 10% to 20% risk and in evaluating myocardial infarction and CAD death alone (as opposed to total CAD events) (33). Participants had a median age of 69.1 years and were followed for a median of 6.8 years. Adding the ABI to the FRS did not statistically significantly change the overall reclassification (NRI, 0.006 [95% CI, −0.018 to 0.029]). Although this study also reported the NRI for the intermediate-risk group, we were unable to calculate a bias-corrected NRI given the data reported. The Health ABC study (n = 2191) likewise defined the intermediate category as 10% to 20% risk (26). This cohort was older ...
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.
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 ...

The ABI is a validated and widely used measure to detect the presence of PAD. Currently, the ABI is recommended as the first-line test for the diagnosis of PAD among individuals with symptoms and clinical findings suggestive of PAD (11). Because PAD is considered a coronary heart disease risk equivalent (21), the ABI is also a simple tool that can identify those at risk of major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE). The current methods used to identify the presence or absence of PAD rely on criteria that might be insensitive (7,8) and have been suggested to falsely classify some at-risk individuals as "normal." In this study, we compared participants classified as having PAD (ABI ,0.90) with the traditional ABI calculation method with patients that were classified as having PAD only when using an alternative ABI calculation method, to see whether we could enhance the prognostic utility of this widely used test.. Individuals who were reclassified as having PAD only when implementing the ...

I read McDermotts editorial (1) with great interest. It might be a global imperative to conduct "a definitive randomized, controlled trial" to determine whether absolute systolic ankle blood pressure screening independent of systolic brachial blood pressure improves health outcomes in persons at risk for peripheral artery disease and cardiovascular disease. Peripheral artery disease can be defined by an abnormally low or high ankle-brachial index (ABI), and both increase cardiovascular mortality. Most studies define peripheral artery disease by an ABI less than 0.9. An ABI does not discriminate between the independent predictive values of systolic ankle blood pressure and systolic brachial blood pressure, and these might differ in ethnically diverse populations ...

The diagnosis of peripheral artery disease is performed by physical examination and laboratory tests. The test that is easiest to use is the ankle brachial index. A patient that has blocks in their arteries will have a low ABI because the pressure in the legs will be lower than in the arms. But here is where the problem lies. Some patients with peripheral artery disease will not have a low ABI. Other patients will have claudication but will not have a low ABI. They may have a different reason for claudication that is not peripheral artery disease.. ...

taken from references 5 and 6.).. Such information is extremely useful in general and especially during the outpatient consultation at the cardiologists office. This indication fits very well with the present views as the actual approach and management of patients is largely guided by the patients total cardiovascular risk. PAD carries a surprisingly elevated risk ; at middle age, yearly mortality is around 5%!; such impressive figure are further increased by the presence of other risk factors such as hypertension and lipid disorders. Total cardiovascular risk is further increased by associated clinical conditions such as coronary artery disease, whatever the presentation, whether it be stable angina pectoris or previous myocardial infarction. Finally, physicians should keep in mind that patients with no or atypical symptoms also carry this elevated risk; this is another reason why the risk of PAD is often underestimated. Measuring an ABI has also been used in large scale studies to detect PAD ...
by Physicians Weekly , Nov 29, 2012. About 8 million people in the United States have peripheral artery disease (PAD), a condition that, if left untreated, increases heart attack and stroke risks, severely limits walking ability, and causes tissue death requiring limb amputation. The prevalence of PAD is nearly equal between men and women (Figure). Only about 10% of individuals with PAD experience classic, recognized exertional claudication, and many people experience no symptoms at all. As a result, few individuals with PAD receive prompt diagnosis or treatment. "The mortality rate and healthcare costs associated with PAD are comparable to those of heart disease and stroke," says Alan T. Hirsch, MD. "Women, in particular, suffer an immense burden from PAD, but current data suggest that most women remain unaware of their risk. PAD continues to go largely unrecognized and untreated in women." An Important Scientific Statement on PAD In the March 20, 2012 issue of Circulation, the American Heart ...
Copyright Policy - open-access License. The normal range for the ankle-brachial index is between 0.90 and 1.30. An index under 0.90 means that blood is having a hard time getting to the legs and feet: 0.41 to 0.90 indicates mild to moderate peripheral artery disease; 0.40 and lower indicates severe disease.. An ankle-brachial index over 1.30 is usually a sign of stiff, calcium-encrusted arteries. These often occur in people with diabetes or chronic kidney disease. In such cases, blood pressure should be measured at the toe, where arteries are less likely to be rigid.. Source: http://www.health.harvard.edu/family-health-guide/ankle-brachial-index. ...
Peripheral Artery Disease, or PAD, is a general term that refers to artery disease anywhere outside of your heart, including the arteries that supply blood to your legs, arms, brain, kidneys, and other organs. This section focuses on disease in the arteries of the legs, the most common kind of PAD.. PAD reduces blood flow to the legs (sometimes referred to as "poor circulation"), and may cause pain or damage to tissues. Because PAD can make walking difficult, it can interfere with many aspects of your life. Women with PAD often have trouble performing daily tasks at work or at home and are forced to avoid activites they enjoy. Because the process that causes PAD affects blood vessels throughout your body, women with PAD have an increased risk of developing heart disease and stroke. Women with PAD are 2 to 6 times more likely to die of heart disease than women without PAD. Without proper treatment, your symptoms may gradually get worse over time. In severe cases, PAD can lead to problems that ...
Objective Topics with peripheral artery disease (PAD) are at increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, perhaps in part, related to increased levels of inflammation, platelet activity, and lipids. levels of biomarkers in subjects with PAD (n = 172) compared with those without PAD (n = 787). Results After adjustment for age, sex, smoking, body mass index, and diabetes, subjects with PAD had greater levels of matrix metalloproteinase-9 (between group comparisons 22%, 95% confidence interval [10C31], < .01), myeloperoxidase (12% [2C20], = .01), interleukin-6 (13% [4C21], = .01), adiponectin (17% [7C26], < .01), intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (7% [2C11], < .01), osteoprotegrin (6% [1C10], = .02), CD40 ligand (15% [1C28], = .04), high-sensitivity C-reactive protein (17% [1C31], = .04), and triglycerides (11% [0.2C21], = .05).

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) occurs when the blood vessels in the leg are narrowed or plugged by the buildup of plaque. Atherosclerosis, the process that causes PAD, tends to start earlier in life and progress more rapidly in people with diabetes. In most people, PAD is symptomless in its early stages. If the disease progresses to a severe stage, however, the most common symptom is pain in the leg muscles-not the joints- when you exert yourself. This symptom, called intermittent claudica- tion, means that the muscles in your legs and feet are not getting enough blood and oxygen when they are working. The pain of intermit- tent claudication comes on with activities such as walking and is relieved by rest or stopping the activity. Without treatment, PAD can progress to the point where the blood supply is so poor that it can lead to dam- age of skin and muscle tissue deprived of blood in your lower legs and feet. Surgery on the blood vessels or even amputation may be necessary in severe cases. A ...
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), defined as diseases of the blood vessels outside the heart or brain, affects eight to 12 million people in the United States. PAD happens when there is a narrowing of the blood vessels outside of your heart. The cause of PAD is atherosclerosis, and occurs when plaque, a substance made up of fat and cholesterol, builds up on the walls of the arteries that supply blood to the arms and legs. Unfortunately, individuals with PAD are at an increased risk for heart disease, aortic aneurysms and stroke.. Additionally, PAD can be a precursor to diabetes, hypertension and various other medical conditions. If you get treatment early and take preventative steps, PAD can be managed effectively and does not have to take over your life. Should you receive a diagnosis of PAD, you can often stop or reverse the buildup of plaque in the arteries with dietary changes, exercise and efforts to lower high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure. You can take control by leading a ...

Patients with Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) must be evaluated and treated to reduce overall cardiovascular morbidity and mortality as well as to prevent functional limitations and limb-threatening ischemia [1]. Resting and post-exercise Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) measurements are useful in diagnosing asymptomatic PAD [2]. The risk of PAD progression is higher than expected at 6.3 years follow-up with 7% of asymptomatic PAD patients progressing to intermittent claudication and 21% of intermittent claudication patients having critical limb ischemia with 4% to 27% having amputations [3]. Family history is a risk factor for PAD that cannot be modified [4]. However, modifiable risk factors for PAD should be intensely treated. About half of patients with PAD are not optimally managed [5]. This needs marked improvement to reduce morbidity and mortality.. Risk Factor Modification. Smoking cessation. Smoking cessation reduces the progression of PAD to critical leg ischemia and reduces the risk of ...

Pulse wave velocity (PWV) is a measure of arterial stiffness and predicts cardiovascular events and mortality in the general population and various patient populations. In the present study, we investigated the predictive value of brachial-ankle PWV for mortality in an elderly Chinese population. Our study subjects were older (≥60 years) persons living in a suburban town of Shanghai. We measured brachial-ankle PWV using an automated cuff device at baseline and collected vital information till June 30, 2013, during follow-up. The 3876 participants (1713 [44.2%] men; mean [±SD] age, 68.1±7.3 years) included 2292 (59.1%) hypertensive patients. PWV was on average 17.8 (±4.0) m/s and was significantly (P,0.0001) associated with age (r=0.48) and in unadjusted analysis with all-cause (n=316), cardiovascular (n=148), stroke (n=46), and noncardiovascular mortality (n=168) during a median follow-up of 5.9 years. In further adjusted analysis, we studied the risk of mortality according to the decile ...
BACKGROUND: Patients with peripheral artery disease have an increased risk of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Antiplatelet agents are widely used to reduce these complications. METHODS: This was a multicentre, double-blind, randomised placebo-controlled trial for which patients were recruited at 602 hospitals, clinics, or community practices from 33 countries across six continents. Eligible patients had a history of peripheral artery disease of the lower extremities (previous peripheral bypass surgery or angioplasty, limb or foot amputation, intermittent claudication with objective evidence of peripheral artery disease), of the carotid arteries (previous carotid artery revascularisation or asymptomatic carotid artery stenosis of at least 50%), or coronary artery disease with an ankle-brachial index of less than 0·90. After a 30-day run-in period, patients were randomly assigned (1:1:1) to receive oral rivaroxaban (2·5 mg twice a day) plus aspirin (100 mg once a day), rivaroxaban twice ...
In this nested case-control study, we found a strong inverse association between total adiponectin and risk of lower extremity PAD in otherwise healthy men. This association was apparent over the entire range of adiponectin concentrations and persisted even after controlling for traditional biochemical risk factors, such as HDL cholesterol, LDL cholesterol, CRP, and other established PAD risk factors, including cumulative lifelong smoking, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia, and diabetes mellitus. No interactions were observed between adiponectin and lipids, and markers of glycemic control, inflammation, or kidney function.. To our knowledge, only 1 prospective study has investigated the effect of adiponectin on risk of incident PAD.18 Similar to our findings in men, data from the Womens Health Study showed a strong inverse association between total and high molecular weight adiponectin with risk of symptomatic PAD (defined as intermittent claudication or PAD revascularization) among 110 women ...
OBJECTIVE Cardio ankle vascular index (CAVI) is reflecting stiffness of the arterial tree from the origin of aorta to the ankles. We observed elevated CAVI in patients who suffered from apoplexy attack. To clarify the role and the mechanism by which arterial stiffness elevated just after apoplexy attack, the effect of enhanced intracranial pressure (ICP) by injecting saline into the cisterna magna of the rabbit on blood pressure, CAVI and cervical blood flow, were studied. Furthermore the role of sympathetic nerve was studied. DESIGN AND METHOD The system of measuring CAVI of the New Zealand white rabbit was set up. General anesthesia was performed by ketamine and xylazine, and the respirator was set. Intracranial pressure (ICP) was monitored using a catheter inserted into subarachnoid space via right frontal bone craniotomy. Saline (15 ml) was inserted to raise ICP. Ganglion blocker, hexamethonium (10 μg/kg/10 min, and 100 μg/kg/10min) was administered just before saline injection. RESULTS When
