Intermittent claudication, myocardial infarction, and angina pectoris share many epidemiologic and biologic features.
Yet few large cohort studies describing the prevalence, incidence, and risk factors for intermittent claudication have been done.
The authors evaluated intermittent claudication in 10,059 Israeli men aged 40-65 years, of whom 8,343 were free of coronary heart disease and symptoms of peripheral vascular disease ; this latter group was followed for 5 years from 1963 to 1968.
Prevalent and incident cases of intermittent claudication were defined by the London School of Hygiene Cardiovascular Disease Questionnaire, and all cardiovascular disease risk factor evaluations were standardized.
Baseline prevalence was 27.0/1,000 (211/10,029).
