The newest installment in the Videos in Clinical Medicine series— one of the most popular, subscriber-only multimedia features — is Ankle–Brachial Index for Assessment of Peripheral Arterial Disease. Although other methods exist to assess the peripheral vasculature more objectively, the ankle–brachial index represents a simple, reliable method for diagnosing peripheral arterial disease.
This video discusses the indications for ankle-brachial index and demonstrates how to perform this test. These peer-reviewed educational videos demonstrate procedural techniques performed by experienced physicians. Earlier, we featured videos on bone aspiration and biopsy, and blood-pressure measurement. All videos also include a PDF summary of the procedure that is useful for teaching or reference. Non-subscribers may purchase videos for $10 each. View a list of all available videos now.
