Abstract

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) involves atherosclerotic occlusion of arteries in the lower extremities affecting over 230 million people worldwide1. Patients with PAD have the highest rates of hospitalizations among atherothrombotic conditions2.Health status plays an important role in outcome for patients with PAD. Poor health status has been shown to be associated with ~3 times increased risk rehospitalization in patients with coronary artery disease3, but this has not been studied in PAD. We used a large, multicenter registry of patients with symptomatic PAD (the PORTRAIT Registry) to investigate the relationship between health status and rehospitalization.
