Ankle-Brachial Index Assessment with Dr. P. Madhu

Deciphering Vascular Health in Hyderabad

The Ankle-Brachial Index (ABI) is a vital diagnostic tool used to detect peripheral arterial disease (PAD), a condition where narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to the limbs. In a health-conscious city like Hyderabad, understanding and monitoring vascular health becomes crucial. Dr. P. Madhu, a prominent orthopaedic surgeon in Hyderabad, offers ABI assessments, ensuring early detection and effective management of PAD.

Understanding the Ankle-Brachial Index

The ABI is a simple, non-invasive test that compares the blood pressure in the ankle to the blood pressure in the arm. This ratio can indicate:

  • Normal Blood Flow: An ABI result of 1.0 to 1.4.
  • Possible PAD: An ABI result less than 1.0.
  • Severe PAD: An ABI result less than 0.5.
Early detection of PAD can prevent complications, ensuring better limb health and overall well-being.

Why is the Ankle-Brachial Index Essential?

PAD often goes undiagnosed as its symptoms can be subtle or mistaken for other conditions. Regular ABI assessments can:

  • Detect PAD at an early stage
  • Monitor the progression of the condition.
  • Evaluate the effectiveness of treatments.
