Abstract

Background: The purpose of our study was to observe risks and frequency of coronary artery disease (CAD) in patients who had peripheral occlusive vascular disease (POVD) but who did not have symptoms of CAD, to determine whether the severity and rate of atherosclerosis risk factors were different in these patients and whether it was possible to predict the concurrence of these diseases by means of tests.
