Clot strength is negatively associated with ambulatory function in patients with peripheral artery disease and intermittent claudication.

Abstract

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is associated with exercise impairment and greater thrombotic risk. We investigated whether clot formation and platelet aggregation assessed by thromboelastography and light-transmission aggregometry correlate with the severity of symptomatic PAD assessed by ambulatory function measures. We studied 40 symptomatic patients… (More)
