- DIAGNOSTIC CONSIDERATIONS IN OCCLUSIVE ARTERIAL DISEASE. Strandness, D. E. // Vascular Surgery;Sep/Oct1977, Vol. 11 Issue 5, p271
The diagnostic approaches to the problem of occlusive arterial disease have been reviewed. The history and physical examination are most useful in establishing the diagnosis, localizing the most proximal level of the arterial involvement, and categorizing the patient's stage of disease....

- The Utility of Transesphageal Echocardiography in Determining the Source of Arterial Embolization. Mariano, Myron C.; Gutierrez, Charles J.; Alexander, Jason; Roth, Fernando; Katz, Steven; Kohl, Roy D. // American Surgeon;Sep2000, Vol. 66 Issue 9, p901
Arterial embolism is frequently of a cardiac source. Arterial-arterial and paradoxical embolization also occurs. Failure to identify the origin may subject the patient to an important series of events. Herein we describe seven cases in which transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) was uniquely...

Although the ratio of ankle-to-arm systolic pressures (AAI) at rest is widely used in the clinical diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease, the heart rate (HR) at which the measurements are performed is rarely reported. The relation of ankle-to-arm index (AAI) to HR was studied in a normal...
- How should you evaluate an asymptomatic patient with a femoral or iliac artery bruit? Walker, Katherine M.; Messick, Brent H.; Kaufman, Leonora // Journal of Family Practice;Apr2009, Vol. 58 Issue 4, p217
The article provides information on the effectiveness of femoral artery bruit in determining the peripheral artery disease. Accordingly, there are 7 million to 13 million American citizens, which is equivalent to 3-18% of the total population, are diagnosed with PAD. In addition, PAD is caused...
