It is uncertain whether exercise-induced zero toe brachial index sign (e-ZETS) is beneficial to prevent advanced perfusion disturbance in maintenance hemodialysis (HD) patients. In HD patients, we compared the clinical findings and prognoses among 22 toes in a resting zero toe brachial index sign (r-ZETS) group, 22 toes in an e-ZETS group, and 63 toes in a(More)
In patients undergoing hemodialysis (HD), the incidence of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is high, leading to a severe condition; therefore, examinations that facilitate early diagnosis are necessary. The diagnostic accuracy of the ankle brachial pressure index (ABI) after walking, of which the cut-off value was corrected for HD patients, is higher than(More)
Objective: The objective of this study was to clarify whether or not pulse volume recoding (PVR) parameters have screening capability equivalent to ankle-brachial pressure index after walking (Ex-ABI) for patients with 0.91 or higher ABI. Patients and Methods: The subjects were 87 patients (147 limbs) with symptoms of lower extremities with 0.91 or higher(More)
The combination of ruptured aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva and a bicuspid aortic valve is very rare in an elderly person. A 71-year-old man with ruptured aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva and a bicuspid aortic valve had undergone an operation. He was admitted to his other hospital because of heart failure. He was transferred to our hospital to undergo(More)
