Angiology Clinic, University of Essen, Hufelandstrasse 55, D 45122 Essen, Germany
J Endovasc Ther 11:125-31. 2004..To evaluate any correlation of fibrinogen and hematocrit with the early success of balloon angioplasty for peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD) and compare the outcomes of angioplasty in diabetic and nondiabetic patients...
- Toe pressure measurements compared to ankle artery pressure measurementsKnut Kroger
Department of Angiology, University of Essen, Germany
Angiology 54:39-44. 2003..The optical measurement was more suitable for toe pressure measurement because it could be used in 90% of all patients. All in all, toe pressure measurements are more useful to exclude CLI than to prove it...
