Abstract

Our data showed that CAD, PAD, and ABI were more prevalent in men than in women aged ≥62 years. Of our 1,886 patients, only 705 (37%) had no CAD, PAD, or ABI. CAD was present in 43%, PAD in 25%, and ABI in 26% of our population. If ABI was present, CAD was also present in 53% and PAD in 33% of our population. If PAD was present, CAD was also present in 58% and ABI in 34% of our population. If CAD was present, ABI was also present in 32% and PAD in 33% of our population.
