Abstract

CORRELATION OF ANKLE BRACHIAL INDEX(ABI) WITH NUMEROUS CLINICAL PARAMETERS IN PATIENTS WITH PERIPHERAL ARTERY DISEASE (PAD)

Indrajit Kumar, Supriti Kumari*, Nitin Tyagi, Trishla, Gaurav Anand

ABSTRACT

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is the occlusive disease of arteries distal to the aortic bifurcation. The prevalence of PAD in the lower limbs in a general population >55 years of age is between 10% and 25% and it increases with age. Majority of affected population have asymptomatic disease.[1] Peripheral arterial disease, whether symptomatic or asymptomatic, is a risk factor for non-fatal and fatal coronary disease and cerebrovascular events. Patients with PAD alone have the same relative risk of death from cardiovascular cause as those with coronary or cerebrovascular disease. Risk of death in patients of PAD within 10 years is 4 times more than those without the disease. Several studies have shown that the ankle brachial index (ABI), an index for occlusive vascular disease, is now considered an independent predictor of coronary and cerebrovascular morbidity and mortality.[2,3] Our study in an Indian population was carried out to correlate and substantiate the relation of PAD with coronary artery disease (CAD) using the ABI.
