The diagnostic performance of the oscillometric ankle brachial index (ABI) to detect peripheral arterial disease (PAD) varies among populations, suggesting a spectrum effect. When this heterogeneity modifies post-test probabilities, a spectrum bias arises. This study evaluates the presence and influence of spectrum effect and spectrum bias on test performance and clinical decisions.

To investigate the correlation of ankle-brachial index (ABI) and brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) with cardiac structures and functions changes in patients with essential hypertension (EH).
Elevated serum uric acid (UA) was intimately correlated with vascular stiffness and abnormal ankle brachial index (ABI) in various populations. These correlations lost significance after adjustment fo...
The American Heart Association (AHA) recommendations for diagnosing peripheral artery disease (PAD) after exercise are a decrease > 20% of ankle brachial index (ABI) or > 30 mmHg of ankle systolic blo...
Ankle-brachial index (ABI) has been linked to the risk of cardiovascular events. However, the association between long-term exposure to air pollution and abnormal ABI has not been fully investigated.
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is associated with poor mobility and fatigue, but the relationship between preclinical ankle-brachial index (ABI) and early markers of fatigue and functional decline ha...
Several methods are available to measure ankle brachial index (ABI) non-invasively. A recent scientific statement of the AHA considers the Doppler method as the reference. However because ...
The purpose of this study is to test a correction factor which would allow ankle brachial indexes taken in the seated position to accurately predict an ankle brachial index taken in the su...
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...
