Screening for asymptomatic peripheral artery disease (aPAD) with the ankle-brachial index (ABI) test is hypothesized to reduce disease progression and cardiovascular (CV) events by identifying individuals who may benefit from early initiation of medical therapy. Using a Markov model, we evaluated the cost effectiveness of initiating medical therapy (e.g. statin and ACE-inhibitor) after a positive ankle-brachial index (ABI) screen in 65-year-old patients. We modeled progression to symptomatic PAD (sPAD) and CV events with and without ABI screening, evaluating differences in costs and quality-adjusted life years (QALYs)...

Pathogenesis of abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is unclear. The aim of this study was to evaluate inflammatory and hemodynamic plasma biomarkers as predictors for AAA in the prospective longitudinal cohort of middle-aged individuals from the cardiovascular cohort of the Malmö Diet and Cancer Study ( n=5551; 1991-94). C-reactive protein, cystatin C, copeptin, N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (N-BNP), midregional pro-atrial natriuretic peptide (MR-proANP) and conventional risk factors at baseline were measured in patients with incident AAA during follow-up and compared to individuals without a diagnosis of AAA...

Patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD) and intermittent claudication (IC) have impaired functional status and quality of life. However, little is known about which factors are associated with poorer health status at the time of initial presentation for PAD specialty care. Characterization of such features might provide insight into disparities that impact health status in this population. A total of 1258 patients from the United States, the Netherlands and Australia with new or worsened IC were enrolled at their first PAD specialty care visit between June 2011 and December 2015...

This study was conducted to identify specific abnormalities using the results from air plethysmography in legs with lymphedema. A routine air plethysmography exercise protocol was performed in 31 patients with unilateral leg lymphedema, and the results were compared with those of 53 patients with unilateral great saphenous vein reflux and 15 normal subjects. The venous filling index in legs with lymphedema (2.1 ± 1.2 mL/sec) was smaller than in legs with great saphenous vein reflux (6.4 ± 4.1 mL/sec, p < 0...

Few prospective studies have examined the factor V paradox: factor V Leiden (FVL) is a stronger risk factor for deep venous thrombosis (DVT) than for pulmonary embolism (PE). The present study, to the best of our knowledge, is the first population-based study aimed to examine the relationship between FVL and incidence of venous thromboembolism (VTE), DVT and PE in a prospective cohort study of middle-aged Swedish individuals. FVL was determined in 4890 subjects (aged 46-68 years, 57% women) from the general population without previous VTE or cancer, who participated in the Malmö Diet and Cancer study between 1991 and 1994...

Erectile dysfunction (ED) is associated with cardiovascular disease (CVD) and CVD mortality. However, the relationship between ED and subclinical CVD is less clear. We synthesized the available data on the association of ED and measures of subclinical CVD. We searched multiple databases for published literature on studies examining the association of ED and measures of subclinical CVD across four domains: endothelial dysfunction measured by flow-mediated dilation (FMD), carotid intima-media thickness (cIMT), coronary artery calcification (CAC), and other measures of vascular function such as the ankle-brachial index, toe-brachial index, and pulse wave velocity...

The resting ankle-brachial index (ABI) is a first-line test to diagnose peripheral artery disease (PAD). No randomized controlled trial (RCT) has yet been conducted to determine the best teaching method to become proficient in the ABI procedure. We conducted a monocentric RCT to determine whether didactic learning alone or didactic learning combined with experiential learning improved proficiency in the ABI procedure. Medical students ( n = 30) received didactic learning, including (i) a presentation of the ABI guidelines and (ii) a video demonstration...

Mortality associated with high-risk pulmonary embolism (PE) remains high. Extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO) allows for acute hemodynamic stabilization and potentially for administration of other disease process altering therapies. We sought to compare two eras: pre-ECMO and post-ECMO in relation to high-risk PE treatment and mortality. A single-center retrospective chart review was conducted of high-risk PE patients. High-risk PE was defined as acute PE and cardiac arrest or shock. A total of 60 patients were identified, 31 in the pre-ECMO era and 29 in the post-ECMO era...
