The aim of this systematic review is to evaluate all research that...

    Subject: This study aimed to establish a normal range for ankle systolic blood pressure (SBP). Methods: A total of 948 subjects who had normal brachial SBP (90-139 mmHg) at investigation were enrolled. Supine BP of four limbs was simultaneously measured using four automatic BP measurement...

    The ankle-brachial index (ABI) is the ratio of the ankle versus brachial systolic blood pressure. ABI of <0.90 indicates the presence of peripheral arterial disease. Some studies indicated that ABI may correlate with the all-cause mortality. The aim of this study was to assess the prognostic...

    Aim: The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of interankle systolic blood pressure difference (sIAND) and its influencing factors in community population. Methods: This study included 2849 (65.1±9.4 y) subjects. Blood pressure (BPs) of four limbs was simultaneously measured...

    BACKGROUND Blood pressure (BP) is highest during the day and lowest at night. Absence of this rhythm is a predictor of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Contributions of changes in posture and physical activity to the 24-hour day/night rhythm in BP are not well understood. We hypothesized...
