Background: Peripheral arterial disease is a disorder due to obstruction of blood supply to extremities. Diabetes mellitus and hypertension are predisposing factors.Objective: To determine if the presence of concurrent hypertension increases the risk of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in Nigerians with type 2 diabetes.
Methods: This was a cross-sectional study that included 160 persons living with diabetes mellitus (60 subjects had type 2 diabetes (T2DM) while 100 subjects had concurrent diabetes and hypertension (DM-HTN)). The presence of PAD was determined by history of intermittent claudication, palpation of dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial arteries, ankle-brachial pressure indexes (ABPI), and measurement of intimal medial thickness [IMT] and spectral pattern on duplex ultrasound imaging of the femoropopliteal arteries. Fasting blood glucose (FBG), glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1C) and some other parameters were obtained from subjects in both groups. Comparisons were drawn between patients with diabetes alone and diabetic-hypertensives.
Results: Mean age of T2DM only was 56.4±10.4 years and 59.4±8.5 years in DM-HTN. FBG (mmol/l) in T2DM only was 7.9±3.6 and 8.0±3.4 in DM-HTN; HbA1C (%) in T2DM group was 7.4±2.2 and 7.3±1.7 in DM-HTN. Prevalence of PAD was 74.9% in people with T2DM only and 70% among DM-HTN group using IMT as reference method. The prevalence of PAD in T2DM based on history of intermittent claudication, clinical palpation, ABPI and spectral pattern was 20.0, 26.7, 20.3, and 40.7% respectively while the prevalence of PAD in DM-HTN using history of intermittent claudication, clinical palpation, ABPI and spectral pattern was 26.0, 35.8, 22.0 and 50.0% respectively.
Conclusion: Prevalence of PAD is high among persons with diabetes mellitus. The presence of hypertension does not seem to confer any risk of PAD in people with T2DM only. In addition, traditional bedside methods of clinical pulse palpation and ankle-brachial pressure index of assessing PAD are still useful.

Adebisi, E, Alao O, Ojo S.  2020.  Assessment of early warning signs predisposing building projects to failure in Nigeria, 2020/01/27. ahead-of-print Abstract

PurposeThe continuous failure of construction projects notwithstanding appreciable increase in project management knowledge has necessitated a proactive approach of assessing early warning signs (EWS) of building projects failure. Building projects are expected to show warning signs before experiencing crises, comparable to a patient displaying symptoms of a disease. Thus, this study aims to examine the EWS that predisposed building projects to failure in Nigeria to provide empirical data for enhancing projects delivery.
Primary data were used for the study. Structured questionnaire was administered to consultants and contractors’ personnel within Lagos State, Nigeria. A total of 180 copies of questionnaire were administered and 134 copies (combined response rate of 74.44 per cent) were retrieved. Frequency distribution, percentages, mean item score and Mann–Whitney test were used to analyse the data.
Most construction professionals applied the EWS approach from project planning and early construction phase. The most significant EWS predisposing building projects to failure were “Management inability and incompetence to proactively detect and manage problems at early project stages”, “Actual expenditure is constantly shooting beyond cost estimates” and “Incurred costs already getting higher than the anticipated benefits”. Project/construction management-related symptoms are most significant to predisposing building projects to failure.
Practical implications
The study provided implications for effective project management of building projects through proactive approach which is very paramount to improving the delivery of building projects in Nigeria.
The study provides implications for proactive management of building projects, thereby enhancing the delivery of building projects.
