23 Ankle Brachial Index ABI: highly specific for leg artery stenosis > 50%, highly sensitive (95 %), takes 10 minutes, recommended in important guidelines (AHA/ACC 1, TASC II 2 etc.) 1 Hirsch AT Circulation 2006;113: Norgren et al. Eur J Vasc Endovasc Surg 2007;33(Suppl. 1):S1-S75. To date, the ABI is the most effective, accurate and practical method of PAD detection (quick, easy, non invasive, cost effective) Systolic blood pressure at ankle should be at least as high as pressure in the arm, i.e. ankle brachial index > 1.0 If ankle pressure is lower than brachial pressure, stenosis is likely i.e. ankle brachial index < 0.9 = PAD Severe moderate mild boderline healthy __________PAD_____________________ 1.0
