The purpose of this study was to examine the correlation between previous arsenic exposure and peripheral vascular disease after stopping consumption of high-arsenic artesian well water for more than two decades in blackfoot disease endemic villages in Taiwan. A total of 582 adults (263 men and 319 women, aged 52.6 +/- 10.6 years) living in these villages underwent Doppler ultrasound measurement of systolic pressures on bilateral ankle (posterior tibial and dorsal pedal) and brachial arteries… CONTINUE READING
