Symptomatic and Asymptomatic Disease
As interest grows in the possibilities for earlier intervention in occlusive vascular disease, whether it be by health education, pharmacological means or the newer minimally invasive radiological techniques there is a need to look afresh at the natural history of the condition, its epidemiology and the tools for early detection. Although a considerable amount of research has centred on occult disease of the coronary arteries (Margolis et al. 1973) little is known about the distribution of “subclinical” occlusive disease of the lower limbs.
