[Extract] Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) defined by imaging or reduced ankle blood pressure affects around 20% of the elderly population; however, only around 6% report symptoms of intermittent claudication. Thus, while the results of imaging may give information relevant to the risk of cardiovascular events and the technical success of an invasive intervention on patients with peripheral vascular disease, it will not provide a measure of symptomatic outcome. Two types of outcome measures have been suggested in patients with intermittent claudication, namely objective measures of walking distance and subjective symptomatic assessments.
