Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a clinical condition that has often been neglected. The clinical diagnosis of PAD may be made on the basis of an accurate history by using the WHO/Rose Questionnaire or the Edinburgh Questionnaire. From a clinical point of view, PAD may be classified into four stages. The PARTNERS Programme (PAD Awareness, Risk and Treatment: NEw Resources for Survival) is a recent study based on a partnership to improve PAD care. In this population, the prevalence of… 
Prevalence of peripheral arterial disease in patients with diabetes mellitus in a primary care setting.
TLDR
PAD is common in the diabetic population of this study and no significant relationships were found between age, gender, smoking status, duration of diabetes mellitus, hypertension, dyslipidaemia, and PAD.
Peripheral arterial disease, diabetes, and mortality.
TLDR
Diabetes is a risk factor for both PAD and PAD-associated mortality, emphasizing the critical need to detect and monitor PAD in diabetic patients.
Prevalence of peripheral arterial disease among diabetic patients in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic and associated risk factors
TLDR
Diabetic patients who are either female, have active foot ulcers, a history of past foot ulcer, non-traumatic amputation, hypertension, hyperlipidemia or peripheral neuropathy are more at risk of developing PAD.
A cross-sectional study on peripheral arterial disease in a district of Sri Lanka: prevalence and associated factors
TLDR
PAD was found to be a hidden disease in the Gampaha district population of Sri Lanka and is likely to become a problematic public health concern in Sri Lanka, particularly with its aging population.
Emerging drugs in peripheral arterial disease
TLDR
New therapies are under development, which target various goals, including minimising local progression of disease, minimising disability, reducing systemic cardiovascular morbidity/mortality and augmenting the durability of surgical intervention.
Incidence and Predictors of Major Adverse Cardiovascular Events in Patients With Established Atherosclerotic Disease or Multiple Risk Factors
TLDR
Patients with established atherosclerotic disease or who have multiple risk factors and are treated in contemporary, routine practice carry a substantial risk for MACE at 1‐ and 4‐ years of follow‐up and MACE risk was shown to vary based on the number and location of vascular beds involved.
Is the Edinburgh Claudication Questionnaire a good screening tool for detection of peripheral arterial disease in diabetic patients
TLDR
The ECQ is not a good screening tool for detection of PAD among patients with diabetes due to its low sensitivity.
Risk factors of peripheral arterial disease and relationship between low ankle brachial index and mortality from all-cause and cardiovascular disease in Chinese patients with hypertension
TLDR
It is demonstrated that low ABI was independently associated with a high risk of all-cause and CVD mortality in Chinese patients with hypertension, and should be promoted as an ideal tool to predict mortality in diabetic patients.
Prevalence of Peripheral Vascular Disease in Chronic Alcoholics as Measured by Ankle to Brachial Index
TLDR
This study was able to establish a direct association between peripheral vascular disease (ABI<0.9) and alcohol consumption above 60gms/day for more than 1yr duration and results were found to be statistically significant.

Prevalence of risk factors in patients with peripheral arterial disease. A clinical and epidemiological evaluation.
TLDR
Lower HDL-cholesterol levels were observed in PAD patients, above all in males, whereas significantly greater Apo-B values and lower ApO-A1 levels (in males) were shown.
Prognosis in arteriosclerotic peripheral vascular disease.
TLDR
Peripheral vascular disease in the presence of diabetes calls for rather aggressive measures, but the prognosis was again much better in the nondiabetic than in the diabetic patients.

Chronic critical leg ischemia (referred to here as critical leg ischemia) is a late stage of atherosclerotic peripheral arterial disease characterized by pain at rest and trophic lesions of the lower
Collaborative overview of randomised trials of antiplatelet therapy Prevention of death, myocardial infarction, and stroke by prolonged antiplatelet therapy in various categories of patients
TLDR
There was no appreciable evidence that either a higher aspirin dose or any other antiplatelet regimen was more effective than medium dose aspirin in preventing vascular events, so in each of the four main high risk categories overall mortality was significantly reduced.
A randomised, blinded, trial of Clopidogrel versus aspirin in patients at risk of ischaemic events (CAPRIE)
TLDR
Long-term administration of clopidogrel to patients with atherosclerotic vascular disease is more effective than aspirin in reducing the combined risk of ischaemic stroke, myocardial infarction, or vascular death.
Abscesses of the Valve Rings of the Heart, a Frequent but Not Well Recognized Complication of Acute Bacterial Endocarditis
TLDR
Abscesses of the valve rings of the heart were encountered at autopsy in 86 per cent of patients with acute bacterial endocarditis who had received antibiotic therapy, and their frequent occurrence suggests a relationship to antibiotic therapy.
Hemostatic Alterations in Peripheral Arteriopathies
