Leptin, adiponectin, and resistin are in a class of hormones called adipokines that are produced by adipocytes and have been implicated in the causal pathway of atherosclerosis. We examined the association between adipokine levels and peripheral artery disease (PAD), hypothesizing that after adjusting for fat mass, leptin and resistin would be higher, whereas adiponectin would be lower, in patients with PAD.

Practice guidelines recommend that patients with peripheral artery disease receive antiplatelets, statins and ACE inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs). We sought to quantify rates of pre...
The contemporary limb outcomes and costs of stent-based vs non-stent based strategies in endovascular revascularization of femoropopliteal (FP) peripheral artery disease (PAD) are not well understood.
The effect of polyvascular disease on cardiovascular outcomes in the background of peripheral artery disease (PAD) is unclear.
In this pilot study, we tested the hypothesis that acute lower leg heating (LLH) increases postheating popliteal artery blood flow and 6-minute walk distance in patients with peripheral artery disease...
Patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) are at high risk for myocardial infarction (MI).
Peripheral artery disease is a disease that contributes to significant morbidity and mortality of millions of Americans yearly. Very little is known about the pathophysiology of atheroscl...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety of two doses of PVS-10200, an allogeneic cellular therapy, delivered as a single injection following percutaneous transluminal ("balloon...
This is a 26-week, prospective double-blind, randomized pilot trial of nebivolol versus an active control, metoprolol succinate, in patients with established lower-extremity peripheral art...
This research project aims to investigate the gender-based difference in patients with peripheral artery disease. To attend this, this study has two specific objectives: Objective 1: To i...
The primary aim of this study is to investigate the effect of an ankle foot orthoses (AFO) on the primary outcome of peak walking time (PWT) in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD...
Comparison of the BLOOD PRESSURE between the BRACHIAL ARTERY and the POSTERIOR TIBIAL ARTERY. It is a predictor of PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE.
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
Insertion of a catheter into a peripheral artery, vein, or airway for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.
Direct myocardial revascularization in which the internal mammary artery is anastomosed to the right coronary artery, circumflex artery, or anterior descending coronary artery. The internal mammary artery is the most frequent choice, especially for a single graft, for coronary artery bypass surgery.
Abdominal artery that follows the curvature of the stomach. The right gastroepiploic artery is frequently used in CORONARY ARTERY BYPASS GRAFTING; MYOCARDIAL REVASCULARIZATION, and other vascular reconstruction.
