Segmental arterial disease in the lower extremities : correlates of disease and relationship to mortality.
The purpose of this study was to identify the correlates of disease and mortality risk associated with the presence of stenosis in the major arterial segments of the lower limb in men and women evaluated in a peripheral vascular laboratory.
A total of 326 men and 249 women had unisegmental stenosis; 312 men and 275 women had multisegmental disease; 132 men and 111 women had no apparent disease.
Multivariate analysis indicated that current smoking and elevated systolic blood pressure were the key risk factors associated with isolated aortoiliac and femoropopliteal arterial disease in both men and women.
