Atherosclerotic peripheral arterial disease (PAD) refers to a range of non-coronary arterial vascular syndromes with progressive stenosis, occlusion, or aneurysmal dilation, most commonly affecting the lower extremity. Lower extremity PAD involves occlusive disease of the aorta, iliac, femoral, and more distal arteries. Patients with PAD typically carry a substantial burden of systemic atherosclerotic disease. Like other manifestations of atherosclerosis, the prevalence of PAD is related to… Expand

Vascular Diseases – Peripheral/Aorta
TLDR
More timely diagnosis of PAD in the primary care setting has the potential not only to improve quality of life by helping to alleviate the lifestyle-impairing symptoms often associated with the disease, but also to identify individuals at high risk for cardiac and cerebrovascular events providing the opportunity to initiate effective life-saving therapies at an earlier stage. Expand
Genetics of Peripheral Artery Disease
TLDR
This review focuses on atherosclerotic arterial occlusive disease affecting the vessels supplying blood flow to the lower extremities (PAD), and discusses the current understanding and the future directions of PAD genetics. Expand
Prevalence of peripheral arterial diseases in patients with large artery ischemic stroke and its prognostic value
TLDR
The prevalence of PAD in large artery ischemic stroke patients is high and asymptomatic PAD has a risk potential for large artery Ischemic Stroke recurrence and mortality more than symptomatic P AD and non-PAD patients. Expand
Evidence-Based Medical Management of Peripheral Artery Disease
TLDR
The evidence behind medical therapies for the management of peripheral artery disease is explored and adherence to this regimen can reduce limb-related complications like critical limb ischemia and amputation, as well as systemic complications of atherosclerosis like stroke and myocardial infarction. Expand
Peripheral Arterial Disease
TLDR
The majority of patients with IC experience stabilization of their symptoms within 5 years and only 10–15% ever develop critical limb ischemia, and both claudicants and those with asymptomatic disease are at increased risk of systemic cardiovascular events. Expand

Physiology in medicine: peripheral arterial disease.
TLDR
A better physiological understanding of the pathogenesis and treatment options for PAD patients is necessary and forms the basis of this Physiology in Medicine review. Expand
Peripheral Arterial Disease Genetics of Peripheral Artery Disease
TLDR
This review focuses on atherosclerotic arterial occlusivedisease affecting the vessels supplying blood flow to thelower extremities (PAD), and discusses the current understand-ing and the future directions of PAD genetics. Expand
Gender Considerations in Peripheral Vascular Disease
TLDR
The focus of this chapter is on the diagnosis and management of these diseases with an emphasis on the gender based differences with a major goal in combating these diseases should be the primary prevention of atherosclerotic disease. Expand
Medical Therapy in Peripheral Artery Disease
TLDR
Despite the level and degree of limb symptoms, even asymptomatic persons with PAD have a greatly reduced functional capacity, which suggests that occlusive disease in the lower extremity is associated with reduced exercise capacity and functional status regardless of the symptomatic state. Expand

Predictors of overall and cardiovascular mortality in peripheral arterial disease.
TLDR
Whether CLI is an independent risk factor for all-cause and cardiovascular mortality is determined, paying attention to the confounding effect of other prognostic factors, including traditional cardiovascular risk factors and concomitant cardiac and cerebrovascular disease. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that FMV of the brachial artery is significantly reduced in PAD patients with a history of stroke and myocardial infarction, suggesting a potential role of FMV as a marker of major cardiovascular events. Expand

TLDR
Peripheral vascular disease is a strong, independent predictor of long-term mortality in patients with stable coronary artery disease and Aggressive attempts at secondary disease prevention are warranted in this high risk group. Expand
Coronary artery disease is highly prevalent among patients with premature peripheral vascular disease.
TLDR
Premature peripheral atherosclerosis is associated with a high prevalence of coronary artery disease and associated cardiac complications among patients with symptoms of premature peripheral vascular disease and detection of CAD is important in this group, because cardiac complications are frequent.

Atherosclerotic Risk Factors Are Less Intensively Treated in Patients with Peripheral Arterial Disease Than in Patients with Coronary Artery Disease
TLDR
Athrosclerotic risk factors are less intensively treated among PAD patients than CAD patients, and a number of possible explanations could account for these disparities in therapeutic intensity. Expand
Pre-existing peripheral arterial disease in trauma.
TLDR
Patients with PAD tend to be much older physiologically than patients of the same chronologic age who do not have vascular disease, and such patients require careful intensive care unit monitoring for at least 2 to 3 days. Expand

TLDR
Routine carotid ultrasound screening of 373 consecutive patients with category I or greater PVD revealed that 22 patients with symptoms and 72 symptom-free patients were potential surgical candidates, representing 25% of the study cohort. Expand
