  1. Lower extremity ischemia in adults younger than forty years of age : a community-wide survey of premature atherosclerotic arterial disease.

    Article - En anglais

    A retrospective community-wide survey identified 109 patients younger than 40 years of age with lower extremity ischemia: 72 men and 37 women, mean age 36 years (range 21 to 40 years), black-to-white ratio-1:1. Initially, 66 patients had claudication and 43 had severe ischemia.

    Cardiovascular risk factors were smoking (85%), hypertension (47%), coronary artery disease (30%), hyperlipidemia (27%), diabetes (25%), and visceral arteriopathy (17%). Unique risk factors included hypercoagulability (15%) and clinical arterial hypoplasia (15%). Twenty-three (21%) patients were treated medically; 74 (68%) underwent primary revascularization and 12 (11%) primary major limb amputation.
