An imprecise term referring to dementia associated with CEREBROVASCULAR DISORDERS, including CEREBRAL INFARCTION (single or multiple), and conditions associated with chronic BRAIN ISCHEMIA. Diffuse, cortical, and subcortical subtypes have been described. (From Gerontol Geriatr 1998 Feb;31(1):36-44)
A nerve which originates in the lumbar and sacral spinal cord (L4 to S3) and supplies motor and sensory innervation to the lower extremity. The sciatic nerve, which is the main continuation of the sacral plexus, is the largest nerve in the body. It has two major branches, the TIBIAL NERVE and the PERONEAL NERVE.
A generic concept reflecting concern with the modification and enhancement of life attributes, e.g., physical, political, moral and social environment; the overall condition of a human life.
A pathological process characterized by injury or destruction of tissues caused by a variety of cytologic and chemical reactions. It is usually manifested by typical signs of pain, heat, redness, swelling, and loss of function.
The intracellular transfer of information (biological activation/inhibition) through a signal pathway. In each signal transduction system, an activation/inhibition signal from a biologically active molecule (hormone, neurotransmitter) is mediated via the coupling of a receptor/enzyme to a second messenger system or to an ion channel. Signal transduction plays an important role in activating cellular functions, cell differentiation, and cell proliferation. Examples of signal transduction systems are the GAMMA-AMINOBUTYRIC ACID-postsynaptic receptor-calcium ion channel system, the receptor-mediated T-cell activation pathway, and the receptor-mediated activation of phospholipases. Those coupled to membrane depolarization or intracellular release of calcium include the receptor-mediated activation of cytotoxic functions in granulocytes and the synaptic potentiation of protein kinase activation. Some signal transduction pathways may be part of larger signal transduction pathways; for example, protein kinase activation is part of the platelet activation signal pathway.
Strains of mice in which certain GENES of their GENOMES have been disrupted, or "knocked-out". To produce knockouts, using RECOMBINANT DNA technology, the normal DNA sequence of the gene being studied is altered to prevent synthesis of a normal gene product. Cloned cells in which this DNA alteration is successful are then injected into mouse EMBRYOS to produce chimeric mice. The chimeric mice are then bred to yield a strain in which all the cells of the mouse contain the disrupted gene. Knockout mice are used as EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS for diseases (DISEASE MODELS, ANIMAL) and to clarify the functions of the genes.
A strain of albino rat used widely for experimental purposes because of its calmness and ease of handling. It was developed by the Sprague-Dawley Animal Company.
Morphologic alteration of small B LYMPHOCYTES or T LYMPHOCYTES in culture into large blast-like cells able to synthesize DNA and RNA and to divide mitotically. It is induced by INTERLEUKINS; MITOGENS such as PHYTOHEMAGGLUTININS, and by specific ANTIGENS. It may also occur in vivo as in GRAFT REJECTION.
A free radical gas produced endogenously by a variety of mammalian cells, synthesized from ARGININE by NITRIC OXIDE SYNTHASE. Nitric oxide is one of the ENDOTHELIUM-DEPENDENT RELAXING FACTORS released by the vascular endothelium and mediates VASODILATION. It also inhibits platelet aggregation, induces disaggregation of aggregated platelets, and inhibits platelet adhesion to the vascular endothelium. Nitric oxide activates cytosolic GUANYLATE CYCLASE and thus elevates intracellular levels of CYCLIC GMP.
Predetermined sets of questions used to collect data - clinical data, social status, occupational group, etc. The term is often applied to a self-completed survey instrument.

Insertion of a catheter into a peripheral artery, vein, or airway for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.
A cobalt-containing coordination compound produced by intestinal micro-organisms and found also in soil and water. Higher plants do not concentrate vitamin B 12 from the soil and so are a poor source of the substance as compared with animal tissues. INTRINSIC FACTOR is important for the assimilation of vitamin B 12.
The relationship between the dose of an administered drug and the response of the organism to the drug.

Long-term functional status and quality of life after lower extremity revascularization. (1/1533)

OBJECTIVE: The objective of this study was to assess the longer term (up to 7 years) functional status and quality of life outcomes from lower extremity revascularization. METHODS: This study was designed as a cross-sectional telephone survey and chart review at the University of Minnesota Hospital. The subjects were patients who underwent their first lower extremity revascularization procedure or a primary amputation for vascular disease between January 1, 1989, and January 31, 1995, who had granted consent or had died. The main outcome measures were ability to walk, SF-36 physical function, SF-12, subsequent amputation, and death. RESULTS: The medical records for all 329 subjects were reviewed after the qualifying procedures for details of the primary procedure (62.6% arterial bypass graft, 36.8% angioplasty, 0.6% atherectomy), comorbidities (64% diabetics), severity of disease, and other vascular risk factors. All 166 patients who were living were surveyed by telephone between June and August 1996. At 7 years after the qualifying procedure, 73% of the patients who were alive still had the qualifying limb, although 63% of the patients had died. Overall, at the time of the follow-up examination (1 to 7.5 years after the qualifying procedure), 65% of the patients who were living were able to walk independently and 43% had little or no limitation in walking several blocks. In a multiple regression model, patients with diabetes and patients who were older were less likely to be able to walk at follow-up examination and had a worse functional status on the SF-36 and a lower physical health on the SF-12. Number of years since the procedure was not a predictor in any of the analyses. CONCLUSION: Although the long-term mortality rate is high in the population that undergoes lower limb revascularization, the survivors are likely to retain their limb over time and have good functional status.  (+info)

Superficial femoral eversion endarterectomy combined with a vein segment as a composite artery-vein bypass graft for infrainguinal arterial reconstruction. (2/1533)

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study was to determine the results of composite artery-vein bypass grafting for infrainguinal arterial reconstruction. METHODS: This study was designed as a retrospective case series in two tertiary referral centers. Forty-eight of 51 patients underwent the procedure of interest for the treatment of ischemic skin lesions (n = 42), rest pain (n = 3), disabling claudication (n = 1), and infected prosthesis (n = 2). The intervention used was infrainguinal composite artery-vein bypass grafting to popliteal (n = 18) and infrapopliteal (n = 30) arteries, with an occluded segment of the superficial femoral artery prepared with eversion endarterectomy and an autogenous vein conduit harvested from greater saphenous veins (n = 43), arm veins (n = 3), and lesser saphenous veins (n = 2). The main outcome measures, primary graft patency rates, foot salvage rates, and patient survival rates, were described by means of the life-table method for a mean follow-up time of 15.5 months. RESULTS: The cumulative loss during the follow-up period was 6% and 24% at 6 and 12 months, respectively. The primary graft patency rates, the foot salvage rates, and the patient survival rates for patients with popliteal grafts were 60.0% +/- 9.07%, 75.7% +/- 9.18%, and 93.5% +/- 6.03%, respectively, at 1 month; 53.7% +/- 11.85%, 68.9% +/- 12.47%, and 85. 0% +/- 9.92% at 1 year; and 46.7% +/- 18.19%, 68.9% +/- 20.54%, and 53.1% +/- 17.15% at 5 years. For infrapopliteal grafts, the corresponding estimates were 72.4% +/- 7.06%, 72.9% +/- 6.99%, and 92.7% +/- 4.79% at 1 month; 55.6% +/- 10.70%, 55.4% +/- 10.07%, and 77.9% +/- 9.02% at 1 year; and 33.6% +/- 22.36%, 55.4% +/- 30.20%, and 20.8% +/- 9.89% at 5 years. CONCLUSION: The composite artery-vein bypass graft is a useful autogenous alternative for infrainguinal arterial reconstruction when a vein of the required quality is not available or when the procedure needs to be confined to the affected limb.  (+info)

Microalbuminuria and peripheral arterial disease are independent predictors of cardiovascular and all-cause mortality, especially among hypertensive subjects: five-year follow-up of the Hoorn Study. (3/1533)

Microalbuminuria (MA) is associated with increased cardiovascular and all-cause mortality. It has been proposed that MA reflects generalized atherosclerosis and may thus predict mortality. To investigate this hypothesis, we studied the associations between, on the one hand, MA and peripheral arterial disease (PAD), a generally accepted marker of generalized atherosclerosis, and, on the other hand, cardiovascular and all-cause mortality in an age-, sex-, and glucose tolerance-stratified sample (n=631) of a population-based cohort aged 50 to 75 years followed prospectively for 5 years. At baseline, the albumin-to-creatinine ratio (ACR) was measured in an overnight spot urine sample; MA was defined as ACR >2.0 mg/mmol. PAD was defined as an ankle-brachial pressure index below 0.90 and/or a history of a peripheral arterial bypass or amputation. After 5 years of follow-up, 58 subjects had died (24 of cardiovascular causes). Both MA and PAD were associated with a 4-fold increase in cardiovascular mortality. After adjusting for age, sex, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, levels of total and HDL-cholesterol and triglyceride, body mass index, smoking habits, and preexistent ischemic heart disease, the relative risks (RR) (95% confidence intervals) were 3.2 (1.3 to 8.1) for MA and 2.4 (0.9 to 6.1) for PAD. When both MA and PAD were included in the multivariate analysis, the RRs were 2.9 (1.1 to 7.3) for MA and 2.0 (0.7 to 5.7) for PAD. MA and PAD were both associated with an about 2-fold increase in all-cause mortality. The RRs of all-cause mortality associated with MA and PAD were about 4 times higher among hypertensive than among normotensive subjects. We conclude that both MA and PAD are associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular mortality. MA and PAD are mutually independent risk indicators. The associations of MA and PAD with all-cause mortality are somewhat weaker. They are more pronounced in the presence of hypertension than in its absence. These data suggest that MA affects mortality risk through a mechanism different from generalized atherosclerosis.  (+info)

The association between laser Doppler reactive hyperaemia curves and the distribution of peripheral arterial disease. (4/1533)

OBJECTIVES: To determine whether postocclusive laser Doppler fluxmetry (LDF) curves can be related to the arteriographic distribution of disease. DESIGN: Prospective study. MATERIALS: Sixty-nine patients with symptomatic peripheral ischaemia and 15 healthy subjects. METHODS: Laser Doppler fluxmetry (LDF) was monitored on the dorsum of the symptomatic foot following 2 min of arterial occlusion at the ankle. During reperfusion three patterns of LDF were identified (types I-III). All patients subsequently underwent arteriography which was reported independent of LDF results. The distribution of disease, particularly patency of below-knee vessels, was related to the type of LDF curve observed during reactive hyperaemia. RESULTS: Type I curves were observed in all healthy subjects and 75% of patients with a single arterial lesion. Type II curves were found in 78% of patients with multiple lesions above the knee. The presence of either a type I or II curve was associated with a continuous vessel from knee to ankle (positive predictive value 83%, p < 0.01), whilst type III curve was associated with discontinuous infrapopliteal run-off (positive predictive value 86%, p < 0.01). CONCLUSIONS: This pilot study suggests that post-occlusive LDF curves may identify the distribution of arterial disease and may be useful in the non-invasive management of peripheral ischaemia.  (+info)

Leg symptoms, the ankle-brachial index, and walking ability in patients with peripheral arterial disease. (5/1533)

OBJECTIVE: To determine how functional status and walking ability are related to both severity of lower extremity peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and PAD-related leg symptoms. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study. SETTING: Academic medical center. PARTICIPANTS: Patients aged 55 years and older diagnosed with PAD in a blood flow laboratory or general medicine practice (n = 147). Randomly selected control patients without PAD were identified in a general medicine practice (n = 67). MEASUREMENTS: Severity of PAD was measured with the ankle-brachial index (ABI). All patients were categorized according to whether they had (1) no exertional leg symptoms; (2) classic intermittent claudication; (3) exertional leg symptoms that also begin at rest (pain at rest), or (4) exertional leg symptoms other than intermittent claudication or pain at rest (atypical exertional leg symptoms). Participants completed the 36-Item Short-Form Health Survey (SF-36) and the Walking Impairment Questionnaire (WIQ). The WIQ quantifies patient-reported walking speed, walking distance, and stair-climbing ability, respectively, on a scale of 0 to 100 (100 = best). MAIN RESULTS: In multivariate analyses patients with atypical exertional leg symptoms, intermittent claudication, and pain at rest, respectively, had progressively poorer scores for walking distance, walking speed, and stair climbing. The ABI was measurably and independently associated with walking distance (regression coefficient = 2.87/0.1 ABI unit, p =.002) and walking speed (regression coefficient = 2.09/0.1 ABI unit, p =.015) scores. Among PAD patients only, pain at rest was associated independently with all WIQ scores and six SF-36 domains, while ABI was an independent predictor of WIQ distance score. CONCLUSIONS: Both PAD-related leg symptoms and ABI predict patient-perceived walking ability in PAD.  (+info)

Relationship between smoking and cardiovascular risk factors in the development of peripheral arterial disease and coronary artery disease: Edinburgh Artery Study. (6/1533)

AIMS: The aim was to determine whether the effect of smoking on the development of peripheral or coronary artery disease might be mediated by other cardiovascular risk factors, including dietary antioxidant vitamin intake, serum low and high density lipoproteins, blood pressure, plasma fibrinogen, blood viscosity and markers of endothelial disturbance and fibrin turnover. METHODS AND RESULTS: 1592 men and women aged 55-74 years were selected at random from 11 general practices in Edinburgh, Scotland and followed-up for 5 years. The incidences of peripheral arterial disease and coronary artery disease were 5.1% and 11.1%, respectively. Both conditions were more common in moderate and heavy smokers than in never smokers: cigarette smoking was a stronger risk factor for peripheral arterial disease than for coronary artery disease. Smoking was associated with reduced dietary antioxidant vitamin intake, serum high density lipoprotein cholesterol and diastolic blood pressure and with increased alcohol intake, serum triglycerides, blood viscosity, plasma fibrinogen, and markers of endothelial disturbance (tissue plasminogen activator and von Willebrand factor antigens). Simultaneous adjustment for these risk factors reduced the relative risk of peripheral arterial disease only slightly, from 3.94 (95% CI 2.04, 7.62) to 2.72 (95% CI 1.13, 6.53) in heavy smokers and from 1.87 (95% CI 0.91, 3.85) to 1.70 (95% CI 0.72, 3.99) in moderate smokers. Similar adjustment also had little effect on the risk of coronary artery disease associated with smoking. CONCLUSION: The combined effect of smoking on the cardiovascular risk factors studied may explain part of its influence on peripheral and coronary arterial disease, but the majority of the effect appears to be due to other mechanisms.  (+info)

Vascular surgical intervention for complications of cardiovascular radiology: 13 years' experience in a single centre. (7/1533)

This study investigates incidence and outcome of iatrogenic vascular complications needing surgery in a single vascular unit serving interventional vascular radiology and interventional cardiology. Evolution of diagnostic and interventional cardiovascular radiology, along with the introduction of non-surgical therapies for such complications, may have influenced the number of vascular complications requiring emergency surgery. Vascular surgical data were collected from information prospectively entered on computerised database and case note review. Radiology data were collated from prospective entries in logbooks and computerised database. In all 24,033 cardiovascular radiological procedures were performed between 1984 and 1996 (61% cardiac), numbers increasing annually. During this period, 62 patients (40 peripheral; 22 cardiac) required emergency surgical intervention after radiological procedures. Mean age was 61.9 years (range 1-92 years), male to female ratio was 1:1. The absolute number of cases requiring surgical intervention peaked in 1989, subsequently reducing annually. Sites of vascular injury included common femoral artery (40), brachial artery (6), iliac artery (6), popliteal artery (5), other (5). A total of 87 vascular surgical operations was performed (range 1-6 operations per patient). Interventions included thrombectomy/embolectomy (29), bypass grafting (16), direct repair (27). Seven major amputations were performed (two bilateral). Mortality after surgery was 9.7%. Mean inpatient hospital stay was 11.3 days (range 0-75 days). A Poisson regression model indicates a 5% reduction in risk for each successive year of observation; however, this did not reach statistical significance (P = 0.16, 95% CI 12% decreased risk to 2% increased risk). The risk of surgical intervention after diagnostic or interventional cardiovascular radiology is diminishing but still requires vigilance. Necessity for surgical intervention is associated with a high risk of morbidity and mortality.  (+info)

Peripheral atherosclerosis and serum lipoprotein(a) in diabetes. (8/1533)

OBJECTIVE: Serum lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] is strongly associated with atherosclerosis in nondiabetic individuals. To see if atherosclerosis is also associated with serum Lp(a) in both IDDM and NIDDM, we determined the correlation between the toe systolic blood pressure index (TSPI) and serum Lp(a) in tightly controlled diabetic patients without nephropathy. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Cross-sectional study of 57 IDDM and 35 NIDDM patients. All patients had been under strict glycemic control for at least 6 months. The main outcome measure was TSPI of both lower extremities. In addition, we measured serum Lp(a) and other serum lipids, serum uric acid, total plasma homocysteine, plasma C-peptide, HbA1c, albumin excretion rate, glomerular filtration rate, BMI, abdominal fat distribution, left ventricular hypertrophy, probabilities for cardiovascular disease (CVD), and routine clinical parameters. RESULTS: TSPI was closely and independently related to serum Lp(a) in IDDM patients: R2 = 0.2999, partial P = 0.0005, and in NIDDM patients: R2 = 0.7326, partial P = 0.0030. TSPI was associated with symptoms of CVD. Median serum Lp(a) concentration was normal in IDDM (45 mg/l [range 10-870]) and NIDDM (72 mg/l [11-803]) patients. CONCLUSIONS: Systemic atherosclerosis measured as the degree of peripheral occlusive arterial disease is strongly associated with serum Lp(a) in both IDDM and NIDDM patients. Serum Lp(a), however, is normal in both types of diabetic patients. Thus, it is indicated that serum Lp(a) should be measured in diabetic patients when assessing their risk profile for atherosclerosis.  (+info)

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, ...
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is associated with an increased risk of early death in cardiovascular (CV) disease. The majority of PAD subjects are asymptomatic with a prevalence of 11 per cent among the elderly. Long-term drug prevention aiming to minimize disease progression and CV events in these subjects is probably beneficial, but expensive. The purpose of this analysis was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of pharmacological risk reduction in subclinical PAD. Long-term costs and quality-adjusted life years (QALYs) were estimated by employing a decision-analytic model for ACE-inhibitor, statin, aspirin and non-aspirin anti-platelet therapy. Rates of CV events without treatment were derived from epidemiological studies and event rate reduction were retrieved from clinical trials. Costs and health-related quality of life estimates were obtained from published sources. All four drugs reduced CV events. Using ACE-inhibition resulted in a heart rate (HR) of 0.67 (95% CI: 0.55-0.79), statins ...

The British Medical Journal has published a paper that has concluded that aspirin is ineffective in preventing primary cardiovascular events in some patients with diabetes. This study has been reported in the media (BBC).. The study particularly looked at patients with diabetes and asymptomatic peripheral arterial disease (defined as a ankle brachial pressure index of 0.99 or less). These patients were randomised to one of four treatment groups including treatment with aspirin, antioxidants or matching placebo. The primary outcome for the study was a composite including death from coronary heart disease or stroke, non-fatal myocardial infarction or stroke.. The study recruited almost 1,300 patients with approximately 300 in each treatment group and ran for 8 years. The study found no difference in the primary endpoint for either treatment. The paper notes that, small effects may be shown with larger trials continued for a longer time.. It should be noted that by year 6 of the study one third ...
Magnetic Resonance Angiography (MRA) of the peripheral arteries has become essential in the diagnosis and follow-up of peripheral arterial disease.. In clinical routine, the acquisition uses intravenous injection of a Gadolinium based contrast agent (gadolinium chelates).. Initially, contrast enhanced MR angiography (CE-MRA) was recommended for diabetic patients, elderly patients and\or patients with chronic renal insufficiency presenting a contraindication to CT angiography using iodized contrast agent injection.. However, the increase in nephrogenic systematic fibrosis clinical cases, which would be secondary to gadolinium chelates injection, in patients with chronic renal insufficiency has restricted the use of CE-MRA. More than 500 cases were described to date in the world.. Its occurrence is currently estimated around 4 % for patients in terminal chronic renal insufficiency and its mortality around 30 %.. According to the recommendations of AFSSAPS from August, 2007, two gadolinium contrast ...

THE SAGE GROUP releases new report on the U.S. prevalence and market for thrombus treatment in peripheral artery disease and critical limb ischemia.
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is often asymptomatic but increases the risk of developing cardiovascular events. Due to the uncertainties regarding the quality of related guidelines and a lack of clear-cut evidence, we performed a systematic review and critical appraisal of these guidelines to evaluate their consistency of the recommendations in asymptomatic PAD population. Guidelines in English between January 1st, 2000 to December 31th, 2017 were screened in databases including Medline via PubMed, EMBASE, the G-I-N International Guideline Library, the National Guidelines Clearinghouse, the Canadian Medication Association Infobase and the National Library for Health. Those guidelines containing recommendations on screening and treatment for asymptomatic PAD were included, and three reviewers evaluated the quality of the guidelines using Appraisal of Guidelines Research and Evaluation (AGREE) II instrument. Related recommendations were then fully extracted and compared by two reviewers.

Polyvascular Disease and Risk of Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events in Peripheral Artery Disease: A Secondary Analysis of the EUCLID Trial.
Peripheral vascular disease is diagnosed through measurements of oxygen saturation. In a specific implementation, peripheral vascular disease is diagnosed based on changes in oxygen saturation in tissue. Ischemia is induced, and then measurements of changes in oxygen saturation in tissue are made. Based on changes in oxygen saturation during the induced ischemia phase, a diagnosis is provided of whether a patient has or does not have peripheral vascular disease.
This study is designed to develop a clinical registry of Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) patients undergoing lower extremity revascularization to describe the population and assess comparative effectiveness of endovascular therapy versus surgery. In addition, this study will conduct a prospective cohort study of patients treated medically or undergoing lower extremity revascularization at the VA and Kaiser Colorado to compare changes in health status ...
Ankle-to-arm blood pressure index ≤ 0.9 was associated with increased mortality in hypertensive adults. Prevailing wisdom argues that persons at greatest risk for cardiovascular disease should be identified and managed more aggressively. Patients with peripheral arterial disease, just like those with transient ischemic attacks and carotid stenoses, are vulnerable to myocardial infarction and to death from cardiovascular disease. Because the relation between smoking and peripheral arterial disease is particularly strong, it is attractive to hypothesize an association between peripheral arterial disease (or an appropriate marker) and mortality from all causes, coronary disease, and smoking-related cancers. AAI offers the most sensitive noninvasive method for detecting important atherosclerotic stenoses in large, lower-limb arteries. The Multicenter Study of Osteoporotic Fractures included a population of older white women, 6% of whom had an AAI of ≤ 0.9. The RR was 3.1 for all-cause mortality ...
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a clinical setting affecting more than 5% of the population older than 60. Despite the low rate of peripheral complications and amputation, PAD is complicated by a high rate of coronary and cerebral events. For this reason, PAD is considered a marker for systemic atherosclerosis and its early diagnosis may be helpful for identifying patients at risk for cardiovascular events. During these last years, many clinical trials with antiplatelet drugs have been conducted to assess if these medications are able to influence the clinical history of PAD. This review will analyse the strengths and drawbacks of these clinical trials and their impact on clinical practice. © 2007 Springer-Verlag Italia Srl.. ...
BACKGROUND: Genetic studies have identified 2 single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) at the LPA locus (rs3798220 and rs10455872) that are strongly and independently related to lipoprotein(a) levels and to coronary disease risk, but their relevance for other atherothrombotic disease is uncertain. METHODS AND RESULTS: These 2 LPA SNPs were examined together as an LPA genotype score for associations with vascular outcomes among participants in the Heart Protection Study. The LPA score was examined first in 12 236 participants with prevalent vascular disease (9277 coronary disease cases, and 1326 ischemic stroke and 2011 peripheral vascular disease cases with no history of coronary disease) and 3687 vascular disease-free controls and, subsequently, in 3251 participants who had incident major vascular events during follow-up (2106 coronary disease, 507 ischemic stroke, and 707 peripheral vascular disease events). For prevalent disease, the LPA score was strongly associated with coronary disease (odds ratio

Background: Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The precise relationship between age, sex, race, clinical cardiovascular risk factors and prevalence of disease in different vascular territories is uncertain.. Methods: A prospective database of more than 3.5 million U.S. adults from 2003-2008 who completed a medical and lifestyle questionnaire and were evaluated by carotid and abdominal ultrasound imaging for the presence of internal carotid artery ,50% stenosis (CAS) and abdominal aortic aneurysm ,3cm (AAA), respectively, as well as ankle brachial indices ,0.9 for the detection of peripheral artery disease (PAD). Risk factors associated with PVD were identified using multivariate logistic regression analysis.. Results: Among 3.6 million adults, any PVD was found in 274,891 (7.4%) adults (carotid-3.8%, AAA-0.9%, and PAD-3.6%). The prevalence of any PVD increased with increasing age (,40 - 1.6%, 41-60 - 3.1%, 61-80 - 9%, ,80 - 21.1%, P,0.0001). ...
Trusted information on peripheral vascular disease (also known as peripheral artery disease) including what it is, causes, diagnosis, symptoms, and treatments
Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) is a blockage or narrowing of the blood vessels outside of the heart and brain that gets worse over time.
Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is when blood vessels not located near the heart or brain narrow, inhibiting blood flow and causing pain.
Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is a slow and progressive circulation disorder caused by narrowing, blockage or spasms in a blood vessel.
If your patient is receiving drug therapy, monitor the effects of the prescribed drugs. Assess the neurovascular status of his legs and report any deterioration in circulation.. Place lambs wool between the patients toes to prevent pressure necrosis. If he has ulcers, provide wound care as needed. Assess the ulcer for signs and symptoms of infection. Cover the ulcer with a dry sterile dressing, topical antibiotic, or other wound care product, as ordered.. If your patient has had surgery for peripheral vascular disease, check his leg for color, temperature, sensation, movement, and pulses during the immediate postoperative period. Report any loss of pulse immediately. Observe the incision site for redness, swelling, and drainage.. Turn and reposition your patient every 2 hours. Tell him to not cross his legs and to avoid severe hip or knee flexion. To aid circulation, add a foot-board to the bed, use a sheepskin under his legs, or place him on an air, pressure, or other special mattress.. If ...

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 ...

Title: Lipid Management and Peripheral Arterial Disease. VOLUME: 8 ISSUE: 4. Author(s):S. S. Daskalopoulou, M. E. Daskalopoulos, D. P. Mikhailidis and C. D. Liapis. Affiliation:Department of Clinical Biochemistry (Vascular Disease Prevention Clinics), Royal Free Hospital,Royal Free and University College School of Medicine, (University of London),Pond Street, London NW3 2QG, UK.. Keywords:Peripheral arterial disease, risk factors, dyslipidemia, lipid lowering, statins, prevention. Abstract: Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a common disorder usually associated with silent or symptomatic arterial disease elsewhere in the circulation and a cluster of cardiovascular risk factors (e.g. smoking, dyslipidemia, hypertension, and insulin resistance/ diabetes mellitus). The medical management of PAD should focus on both the relief of symptoms and prevention of secondary cardiovascular complications. This approach must include smoking cessation, optimal cholesterol levels, blood pressure and glycemic ...
Sadly, only about 50 percent of amputees survive three to four years after a leg amputation due largely to the presence of extensive vascular disease in other key organs such as the heart and brain. [...] how has peripheral arterial disease managed to fly under the health care radar with relative impunity to wreak havoc on the health of millions of people? Low community awareness of its symptoms, mischaracterization of leg vascular pain as arthritis or aging, infrequent measurement of blood pressure levels in the legs by primary care physicians and specialists, and late referral to vascular specialists or institutions with vascular centers of excellence. The presence of calf or foot pain with exertion should prompt a complete physical exam and the appropriate vascular studies to diagnose peripheral arterial disease or exclude it. With so much emphasis being placed on wellness and prevention in todays health care environment, a dramatic 23 percent worldwide increase in peripheral arterial disease
Mayo Clinic Health System in Eau Claire is the first hospital in northwest Wisconsin to use drug-coated balloons for the treatment of peripheral arterial disease in the lower leg area.. Drug-coated balloons are an exciting advancement in the treatment of peripheral arterial disease. They allow us to open up blocked arteries and administer a drug to keep the arteries open longer - all without having to leave a permanent stent, a tube used to hold open a blood vessel or other bodily passageway, in the body. Peripheral arterial disease is similar to the hardening of the arteries that causes heart attacks. The same process tends to occur elsewhere in the body and can lead to pain with walking, which can progress to pain all the time, even at rest. If left untreated, the disease can lead to loss of the affected limb.. Previous treatment of diseases involving the arteries in the groin and the foot were limited to surgical bypass, pain control or amputation. In the past four years, there have been ...

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) or Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) is a disease of the peripheral blood vessels characterized by narrowing and hardening of the arteries that supply the legs and feet. The decreased blood flow results in nerve and tissue damage to the extremities.. PAD/PVD is a highly prevalent, under diagnosed, under treated disease. PAD/PVD has a gradual onset, initially asymptomatic until secondary complications develop. Surprisingly, 50 percent of people with PAD have no symptoms while 40 to 50 percent may present atypical, non-specific leg complaints.. Although Peripheral Arterial Disease is serious, it is treatable. Treatment may slow or stop disease progress and reduce the risk of complications. Treatments include lifestyle changes, quitting smoking, medicine, and surgery or procedures. ...

The ideal medical therapy would improve claudication, forestall the onset of limb-threatening events, decrease rates of invasive interventional therapies and improve long- term patient survival. These ideal outcomes might be achieved through the use of smoking cessation interventions, including behavioral and pharmacological therapy, and the administration of antiplatelet and lipid-lowering medications in patients with PAD..

They conducted an observational study among 5,419 noninstitutionalized residents of 4 US communities aged ≥65 years at baseline (1989-1990 or 1992-1993). Ankle brachial index was measured, and participants reported their history of PAD procedures. Participants were followed longitudinally for adjudicated incident PAD events. At baseline, mean BMI was 26.6 (standard ...
The classification of critical limb ischaemia, for example, returned to a descriptive definition. After more than 25 years of utilisation of the haemodynamic parameters to support the diagnosis of critical limb ischemia, the TASC II authors could not find a consensus regarding the critical level for ankle brachial pressure index, toe pressure, and TcPO2, as different patterns of proximal, distal, and foot or finger arterial occlusions can be responsible for this clinical event.. Investigation of microcirculation and macrocirculation is recommended to support the diagnosis of critical limb ischaemia. Nevertheless, the determination of TcPO2 seems to keep a role in patients with falsely elevated ankle brachial pressure index; 30mmHg is considered the critical value. Moreover, the measure of TcPO2 combined with clinical determination may be of value to predict healing at various levels of amputation.. Regarding medical treatment with prostanoids, the two type A statements of TASC IIs ...

OBJECTIVE AND DESIGN This study was designed to test the hypothesis that initial TcPO2 helps predict clinical outcome in vascular patients treated with spinal cord stimulation. A randomized-controlled study with one year follow-up was made in 86 Fontaine stage IV patients with endstage peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) undergoing 21 day intravenous prostaglandin E1 (PGE1) therapy for nonhealing ulcers. MATERIALS AND METHODS All patients had arteriosclerosis, 13 also diabetes mellitus. Entry criteria included: non-reconstructible PAOD as proven by intra-arterial angiography or patient condition, ankle systolic pressure | 50 mmHg, severe rest pain despite analgetic medication, and presence of nonhealing foot ulcers or dry gangrene. One week after the start of PGE1 therapy, patients were randomized into receiving SCS plus PGE1 (n = 45 patients), or just PGE1 (n = 41 patients). Follow-up examinations were done at 1, 3, 6 and 12 months. BASELINE: There were no significant differences between

The clinical relevance of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) stems not only from its well-known debilitating symptoms and sequelae (such as intermittent claudication, ischaemic rest pain, and limb amputation) but also from its position as a strong predictor of future cardiovascular (CV) events. PAD is a marker of systemic atherosclerosis; regardless of whether it is symptomatic or not, it has been repeatedly associated with a three- to six-fold increased risk of death from CV causes.1 Furthermore, this increased risk is independent of, and in addition to, that expected by concomitant traditional CV risk factors.2 The evidence is sufficiently robust that national and international guidelines recommend the same strategy of CV risk modification for PAD as for coronary artery disease.3-5 The disease, however, is underdiagnosed and this may be partly attributed to the fact that up to two-thirds of patients with PAD in the community are asymptomatic.4 This has resulted in calls for the instigation of ...

Our results indicate that leg pain is common in PAD patients and can present in atypical ways. In addition, leg pain is not uncommon in patients without definitive PAD, particularly in those with borderline ABI values. These data show that in patients with normal ABIs, pain is still inversely related to the ABI level, at least to an ABI level of 1.40, where arterial stiffness may result in a false-negative ABI.. These data suggest that patients who complain of bilateral leg pain, whether or not it is PAD related, have a very strong tendency to report the same type of pain in both legs. Interestingly, in the 80 patients with unilateral PAD and unilateral pain, the pain was not in the leg with PAD 13.8% of the time. This finding underscores the limitation of claudication questionnaires that do not assess symptoms separately for each leg or limitations in our own understanding of pain-processing pathways.. Taking all patients combined, there was a stepwise decrease in average ABI from no pain, pain ...
Supervised Exercise Therapy For Symptomatic Peripheral Artery Disease offered at all MidMichigan Cardiac Rehabilitation locations.
Aortic augmentation index (AIx) is a marker of central aortic pressure burden and is modulated by antihypertensive drugs. In patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) undergoing antihypertensive treatment, aortic pressures parameters, heart rate-adjusted augmentation index (AIx75), and unadjusted AIx were determined. The (aortic) systolic and diastolic blood pressure did not differ between PAD patients who were taking $\beta$-blockers (n=61) and those who were not taking $\beta$-blockers (n=80). In patients taking $\beta$-blockers, augmentation pressure and pulse pressure were higher than in patients who did not take $\beta$-blockers (augmentation pressure, P=.02; pulse pressure, P=.005). AIx75 was lower in PAD patients taking $\beta$-blockers than in patients not taking $\beta$-blockers (P=.04), while the AIx did not differ between PAD patients taking and not taking $\beta$-blockers. The present study demonstrates that $\beta$-blockers potentially affect markers of vascular hemodynamics ...
Endovascular treatment of symptomatic peripheral arterial disease in the femoropopliteal (FP) artery is fraught with high rates of restenosis. Success of the antiproliferative drug, paclitaxel, in the coronary arteries, has lead to the investigation of paclitaxel in the peripheral arteries to treat restenosis. This article reviews restenosis rates for the major treatment modalities used in the FP segment. Use of drug-elution for restenosis is also reviewed, including the use of drug-eluting balloons and drug-eluting stents.. ...
The prevalence of PAOD in patients with CAD ranges from 5 to 40% (5,10,21-26). Such broad range may be justified by the fact that prevalence studies enroll different populations, are not randomized, investigate few clinical presentations of coronary disease, and use different diagnostic methods. Most studies that used ABPI enrolled small samples, sometimes only hospitalized patients who probably had more severe CAD. Therefore, comparisons with results of studies that selected large and diversified samples of patients with CAD are difficult (10,19). The measurement of ABPI is a widely accepted method for epidemiological studies (13,14). However, results vary according to the time when patients are examined and who performs the measurements (27). This index also shows a greater number of false-negative results among patients with diabetes because of the calcification of artery walls. It is estimated that 5 to 10% of patients with diabetes have an artificial elevation of blood pressure due to the ...
The objective in the present thesis was to evaluate possible improvements when using training as a treatment for peripheral arterial disease (PAD) patients and to study possible mechanisms behind the adaptations to training. During exercise patients with PAD are limited by muscle pain in the lower extremities, distal to the atherosclerotic lesions, due to lack of oxygen. In the first experiment high aerobic intensity whole body treadmill endurance training was found to be superior to previous recommendations using moderate aerobic intensity. During the 8 weeks of training whole body peak oxygen consumption (VO2peak) and time to exhaustion when walking improved, whereas no changes in blood flow were observed. Since the high aerobic intensity treadmill walking showed muscular, but not cardiac output or stroke volume responses, it was hypothesized in paper II that specific calf muscle individual leg training could result in even better effect on the distal limitations from the PAD. The calf muscle ...
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a type of vascular disease that affects the arteries. Also known as leg attack, it is a condition in which plaque builds up in the arteries that carry blood to the head, organs, and limbs. PAD is a common disorder but since it is not always life-threatening, it has not received the same degree of attention or research as coronary heart disease. PAD may be a precursor of coronary heart disease since people with narrowed peripheral arteries are also more likely to have a narrowing of the coronary arteries which can be fatal.. There are certain complications around PAD. In some rare cases, blood clots can develop suddenly in a major artery in the leg - a condition also known as acute occlusion. Symptoms for the same include numbness, pain, coolness, pale colour, lack of pulse in the artery, and weakness. This can lead to amputation or even loss of life. Treatment options include Drug Coated Balloons (DCB) which helps in keeping the vessels clear, without leaving ...
