AIMS: Elevated degree of glycated hemoglobin (HbA1c) is related to an elevated prevalence of peripheral arterial illness (PAD). This research aimed to evaluate the connection between the anatomical distribution of symptomatic PAD lesions in sufferers with kind 2 diabetes and HbA1c ranges on the time of PAD prognosis.
PATIENTS AND METHODS: A retrospective research was carried out at King Abdullah College Hospital in the course of the interval August 2011 to December 2015. Consecutive sufferers with kind 2 diabetes offered with symptomatic PAD confirmed by computed tomography-angiography (CTA) have been included on this research. CTA photos have been reviewed. Related data together with demographic information, PAD signs, comorbidities, HbA1c degree, lipid profile, C-reactive protein and the imply platelets quantity have been retrieved from medical data.
RESULTS: A complete of 332 sufferers with kind 2 diabetes (255 males and 77 females) have been included on this research. The imply HbA1c on the time of PAD prognosis was 8.68% (±2.06%). The prevalence of hemodynamic related atherosclerotic lesions of the superficial femoral artery, popliteal artery, leg vessels, femoro-popliteal, and crural segments was considerably larger in sufferers with HbA1c >7.5% in contrast with sufferers with HbA1c ⩽7.5%.
CONCLUSION: The anatomical distribution of symptomatic PAD in sufferers with kind 2 diabetes mellitus differed considerably in line with HbA1c degree on the time of PAD prognosis.
