OBJECTIVES To determine the prevalence of ankle-brachial index (ABI)<0.9 and symptomatic peripheral arterial disease (PAD), association with cardiovascular risk factors (CVRF), and impact of adding ABI measurement to coronary heart disease (CHD) risk screening. DESIGN Population-based cross-sectional survey of 6262 participants aged 35-79 in Girona, Spain. METHODS Standardized measurements (CVRF, ABI, 10-year CHD risk) and history of intermittent claudication (IC), CHD, and stroke were… CONTINUE READING
