A longitudinal study of ankle brachial pressure indices (ABPI) in a cohort of patients with systemic sclerosis (SSc).

 

The severity of vascular disease in patients with SSc is associated with increasing age, smoking, limited cutaneous disease and positive anti-centromere antibodies. Reassuringly, in most patients ABPI remains stable over time. PubMed, Rheumatology (Oxford). 2014 Jun 6. (Also see: Vascular Involvement and Digital Ulcers)
