Abstract

A STUDY OF PREVALENCE OF PERIPHERAL ARTERY DISEASE (PAD) IN PATIENTS WITH ANKLE BRACHIAL INDEX(ABI) LESS OR GREATER THAN 0.9

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

ABSTRACT

Objective: To study the prevalence of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) of the lower limbs in a high-risk population and its correlation with coronary artery disease (CAD), using the ankle brachial index (ABI). Methods: The present study was conducted in randomly selected indoor patients >45 years of age with one or more risk factors for PAD admitted in the cardiology and medicine wards in a tertiary care institute. Results: Based on ABI <0.9, PAD was diagnosed in 20 of the 70 (18%) patients. Coronary artery disease was present in 15 cases of PAD which was statistically significant. Conclusion: There is a definite and strong correlation between PAD and CAD. Correct diagnosis and supervision of patients with PAD is important for preventing the local progression of the disease and effective secondary prevention of future coronary and cerebrovascular events.

Keywords: Ankle brachial index, Coronary artery disease, Peripheral arterial disease.
