Although not widely used elsewhere, exercise ABI tests have been done at Erasmus for at least 20 years, she said.
The all-cause mortality rate during follow-up ranged from a low of 5% in patients with a resting ABI of 0.9 or greater and an exercise ABI of at least 1.1, to a high of 26% in patients with a resting ABI of at least 0.9 but an exercise ABI of less than 0.9.
Historically, high ankle-brachial index (ABI) values were dismissed as erroneous and were tossed out.
"Many, many studies show that the lower your ABI, the higher your risk.
"Initial activation of the ABI is like a newborn entering the world and hearing for the first time, which means these children will need time to learn to interpret what they are sensing through the device as 'sound,'" said audiologist Laurie Eisenberg, Ph.D., a Keck School of Medicine of USC otolaryngology professor and study co-leader.
In contrast, patients without PAD at rest and an exercise ABI of 0.9-1.09 had no statistically significant increased mortality rate compared with the reference group.
About 700 of the patients in the study had an ABI at rest of more than 0.9, a normal level, despite their referral to the medical center because of suspected PAD.
