  1. Prevalence of peripheral arterial disease and related risk factors in elderly institutionalized subjects.

    Article - En anglais

    Blood pressure was measured at the posterior tibial artery by Doppler ultrasonography in 124 elderly subjects (37 men and 87 women) living in two retirement homes in Naples (Italy).

    Ankle-to-arm systolic pressure ratios below 0.97 and 0.90 was considered as a probable and definite pathological sign of peripheral arterial disease, respectively.

    Half of the subjects (48% of men and 51% of women) gave a value below 0.97, while a third (35% of men and 33% of women) had a value below 0.90.
