Abstract
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a widespread disease with high impact on global health. While general population screening is not currently indicated, the primary care physician has the critical role of identifying asymptomatic patients who are particularly at risk for PAD and could therefore benefit from screening. In addition, he or she must recognize the typical and atypical clinical presentations of patients with symptomatic PAD to ensure proper diagnosis and care. After an adequate medical history and clinical examination, the first diagnostic test is the « Ankle-Brachial Index » (ABI) calculation. In case of pathologic ABI (≤ 0.9, or > 1.4), or in case of normal or borderline ABI with symptoms, the patient should be referred to a vascular medicine physician for diagnostic confirmation and management.
