Ankle-Brachial Index and Brachial-Ankle Pulse Wave Velocity in a Mexican Population of Healthy Individuals: A Reproducibility Research Study

Background: Ankle-brachial systolic pressure index, reflect arterial hemodynamics in lower extremity and therefore indicates the presence of peripheral arterial disease. On the other hand, an emerging method for assessing arterial stiffness is brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity. Automated devices, such as the “Vascular Profiler 1000” (VP1000) (Omron®, Kyoto, Japan), are currently available for measuring not only the brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity but also the ankle-brachial index, proving their utility in the diagnosis of peripheral arterial disease.
