- Comparative Diagnostic Value of Ankle-to-Brachial Index and Transcutaneous Oxygen Tension at Rest and After Exercise in Patients with Intermittent Claudication. de Groote, Pascal; Millaire, Alain; Deklunder, Guislaine; Marache, Philippe; Decoulx, Eric; Ducloux, Gérard // Angiology;Feb1995, Vol. 46 Issue 2, p115
Background: Few studies have compared sensitivities of ankle-to-brachial index (ABI) and transcutaneous oxygen tension (TCPo2) in a large group of patients with Leriche stage II intermittent claudication. Method and Results: 111 patients (138 limbs) with a stable chronic (> three months)...
- Percutaneous Interventions for Lower Extremity Peripheral Vascular Disease. De Sanctis, Julia Tucker // American Family Physician;12/15/2001, Vol. 64 Issue 12, p1965
Peripheral vascular disease of the lower extremities is an important cause of morbidity that affects up to 10 million people in the United States. The primary care physician can easily identify patients who are at risk for the disease with a questionnaire and a relatively simple test--the ankle...

- The Apoprotein Pattern in Normolipemic Peripheral Vascular Disease. Siepi, Donatella; Pistola, Lorenza; Pasqualini, Leonella // Angiology;Jun1988, Vol. 39 Issue 6, p555
The relationship between peripheral vascular disease (PVD) and plasma apoproteins has still not been well defined. The lipid and apoprotein pattern of a group of 20 normolipemic patients affected by peripheral vascular disease has been compared with 20 healthy normolipemic subjects. Mean...
- Pulse Oximetry in the Evaluation of Peripheral Vascular Disease. Jawahar, David; Rachamalla, H. R.; Rafalowski, Alicja; Ilkhani, R.; Bharathan, T.; Anandarao, N. // Angiology;Aug1997, Vol. 48 Issue 8, p721
The role of pulse oximetry in the evaluation of peripheral vascular disease (PVD) was investigated. In addition, the value of elevating the limb to improve the sensitivity of detection of PVD by the pulse oximeter was also determined. Pulse oximetry reading in the toes were obtained in 40 young,...
