Table 3 Summary of mean ± SD for ankle-brachial pressure index systolic/diastolic (ABIs and ABI-d) and the delta (ABI-s minus ABI-d) for all groups and for both leg sides (Repeated measures ANOVA test; Group A vs group B and group A vs group C for each leg (P < .001); Group B vs group C (P = .543 for right leg & P = .720 for left leg)
