Few studies have examined the relationship between abnormal ankle-brachial index (ABI) and short-term outcome in patients with acute ischemic stroke (AIS).
Acute ischemic stroke is a major cause of mortality and morbidity in the United States. We review the latest data and evidence supporting catheter-directed treatment for proximal artery occlusion as a...
During surgery for elbow fracture, wires and screws crossing the elbow from posterior to anterior place the brachial and ulnar arteries at risk for inadvertent penetration. The authors' goal was to de...
QT dispersion (QTd) has been proposed as an indirect electrocardiography (ECG) measure of heterogeneity of ventricular repolarization. The predictive value of QTd in acute stroke remains controversial...
There is no agreement on optimal blood pressure (BP) level during the acute phase of stroke, because studies on the relation between BP and stroke outcome have shown contradicting results. The aim of ...
Purpose: To assess the prevalence of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in acute stroke patients. Interventions: Assessment of the ankle brachial index using the "boso-ABI-system 1...
The purpose of the trial is to evaluate the safety of microplasmin as well as its ability to open blocked arteries to the brain in patients with acute stroke when given into the artery at ...
The aim of this study is to evaluate the vascular effects of tibolone on climateric women measured by flow-mediated evaluation of the brachial artery using high resolution ultrasound and c...
The purpose of this study is to test the effectiveness of a home-based depression treatment intervention called "Program to Encourage Active, Rewarding Lives (PEARL)". We hypothesize that ...
A study to evaluate the inter- and intra subject variabilities of flow-mediated dilation (FMD) of brachial artery and nitroglycerin (GTN) induced dilation of brachial artery.
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Comparison of the BLOOD PRESSURE between the BRACHIAL ARTERY and the POSTERIOR TIBIAL ARTERY. It is a predictor of PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE.
The direct continuation of the brachial trunk, originating at the bifurcation of the brachial artery opposite the neck of the radius. Its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to the three regions in which the vessel is situated, the forearm, wrist, and hand.
The larger of the two terminal branches of the brachial artery, beginning about one centimeter distal to the bend of the elbow. Like the RADIAL ARTERY, its branches may be divided into three groups corresponding to their locations in the forearm, wrist, and hand.
The continuation of the axillary artery; it branches into the radial and ulnar arteries.
Blocking of the PULMONARY ARTERY or one of its branches by an EMBOLUS.
