Figure 3: (a) Distribution of the two most discriminant parameters in the study population. The ankle–brachial index difference between the healthy and the affected leg was plotted against the ankle–brachial index of the exercise-induced arterial endofibrosis-affected leg for each of the 208 participants. Patients with exercise-induced arterial endofibrosis presented a lower ankle–brachial index in the affected leg associated with a higher difference of ankle–brachial index between the affected and the healthy leg as compared to healthy controls. (b) A linear discrimination analysis of the data distribution resulted in the equation Z = -17.08 × ankle–brachial index + 26.83 × ankle–brachial index AD + 5.06, where the diagnostic of exercise-induced arterial endofibrosis is made when Z > 0
