The article focuses on a comparison of arm and thigh blood pressures in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysms. In the article, all the 31 patients with proved aneurysm of the abdominal aorta were men. Control consisted of 30 persons 45 to 86 years old. There were 18 men and 12 women in the control group. The systolic pressure was taken as the level of the first sound and the diastolic pressure as the level at which the sounds disappeared. Results of control studies and previous studies of blood pressure in normal persons seems to exclude the possibility of artifact as a basis for the finding of the lowered systolic blood pressure in the thigh of patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm.
