What Our Patients Are Saying
An ankle-brachial index is a simple and non-invasive test performed to diagnose peripheral vascular disease. The index compares the blood pressure of the legs and arms and creates a ratio that shows the availability of blood to flow freely from one extremity to the other.
Dr. David J. Paolini vascular surgeon with Western Vascular Institute discusses signs, symptoms, and treatment of Peripheral Vascular Diseases.
