To investigate the value of the Edinburgh Claudication Questionnaire (ECQ) against the ankle-brachial index (ABI) in Canadian patients mainly followed in general practice, with documented acute coronary syndrome (ACS)/ischemic stroke (IS)/transient ischemic attack (TIA) and who are not known to have peripheral arterial disease (PAD) at the time of enrolment.
To collect data on the prevalence of PAD in this population as measured by ABI.

We describe a case of an infected popliteal artery stent with septic emboli presenting 6 years after peripheral vascular intervention for intermittent claudication. Management included resection of th...
Obstruction of the flow in the SPLANCHNIC CIRCULATION by ATHEROSCLEROSIS; EMBOLISM; THROMBOSIS; STENOSIS; TRAUMA; and compression or intrinsic pressure from adjacent tumors. Rare causes are drugs, intestinal parasites, and vascular immunoinflammatory diseases such as PERIARTERITIS NODOSA and THROMBOANGIITIS OBLITERANS.

Pathological processes involving any of the BLOOD VESSELS in the cardiac or peripheral circulation. They include diseases of ARTERIES; VEINS; and rest of the vasculature system in the body.
Pathological processes involving any one of the BLOOD VESSELS in the vasculature outside the HEART.
Diseases of the peripheral nerves external to the brain and spinal cord, which includes diseases of the nerve roots, ganglia, plexi, autonomic nerves, sensory nerves, and motor nerves.
Dysfunction of the URINARY BLADDER due to disease of the central or peripheral nervous system pathways involved in the control of URINATION. This is often associated with SPINAL CORD DISEASES, but may also be caused by BRAIN DISEASES or PERIPHERAL NERVE DISEASES.
