Methods: This was a cross-sectional, multicenter, observational survey in consecutive patients (≥18 years) with documented previous coronary and/or cerebrovascular atherothrombotic event in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Kuwait and Qatar (64 centers), from October 2008 to December 2010. PAD was defined as an ankle brachial index AB - Objective: To evaluate the epidemiology and predictors of asymptomatic peripheral ...
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 ...

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. Fourteen

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). ...

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 ...
