Subject: Re: ABI

Just a little plug for the UK.  Jim Yao did the Doppler ABI work during his vascular fellowship, when we worked together at St. Mary’s in London, in the mid-1960’s. 1960’s, not 1860’s.

 

(From the “old persons’ dept. We were using strain gauge plethysmography to measure systolic pressures, prior to acquiring our first 801 Parks Doppler, in 1967. The UK Parks importer was a friend of mine and was demo’ing the Doppler to Heinz Foods, potentially to monitor volumes of chopped vegetables, in their soup production line.  Really folks, I’m not making this up. If not documented, this early off-the-wall stuff will be lost as we old timers just disappear into puddles of gel.)

 

(From the ‘minutiae’ dept. The concept of comparing systolic pressures from ankle level to arm level was postulated first by Travis Winsor, in 1951.)

All this said—Dr Yao just had his retirement party in Chicago recently.

   We should give a big thank you to him for his achievements and the success we have today because of his works with Dr Bergan,

Lisa

Subject: Re: ABI questions from curious student

 

Steve, this was very well written and defined. This question comes up often now that the Cardiology services are doing ABI. Yesterday I went to an AHA Cardiology meeting and the first lecture was on Endovascular Approach to PAD. It was very well done and explained how valuable ABI is when evaluating patients with CV indications. Although, we have been doing this test for 30 yrs, it has now reached a new plateau in diagnostic evaluation. The same issues prevail, with calcified vessels, open distal ulcers, and improper technique, but overall, ABI is considered as valuable as an EKG to the cardiology services. Keep up the good work and think ABI. K
