Reproducibility of noninvasive tests of peripheral occlusive arterial disease



Reproducibility of noninvasive tests of peripheral occlusive arterial disease



Journal of Vascular Surgery 2(5): 678-683



We studied the reproducibility of four tests of peripheral occlusive arterial disease in 54 subjects, 32 of whom had this disease. We found that the reproducibility of systolic blood pressures obtained at rest from the thighs, calves, and ankles approximated that of arm systolic and diastolic blood pressures, as did the ankle-to-arm systolic blood pressure ratios. The average of the tenth and ninetieth percentile ranges of the resting systolic blood pressure ankle-to-arm ratios was.+-. 0.10.
