OBJECTIVES High ankle-brachial index (ABI) (>1.40) is associated with poor cardiovascular disease (CVD) prognosis. Concomittant peripheral artery disease (PAD) is frequent, although undetectable with the ABI in this situation. We assessed the prognostic value of a high ABI according to the coexistence of occlusive PAD in diabetics. METHODS In this retrospective longitudinal study, we reviewed the data of 403 consecutive diabetic patients (hospitalized in tertiary care teaching hospital) who… CONTINUE READING
