ABSTRACT
Critical assessment of the quantitative diagnostic value of the Doppler-ultrasound method for detection of obliverative arterial disease has been given. The study is based on 106 limbs (40 controls and 66 limbs with arterial disease). If the method is used for determination of distal systolic arterial pressure at the foot it demonstrates that the severity of the disease is very well reflected by the level of the local perfusion pressure, especially if this is related to the systemic arterial pressure (arm-leg pressure gradient or leg/arm pressure ratio).
