Abstract

The prevalence of peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAD) in women and men is equal. Studies to date present conflicting data of gender effects on the risk factors, clinical presentation, and treatment outcomes. Clinical trials have often failed to analyze results by gender or to recruit sufficient women to enable such an analysis. This review summarizes the management and outcome of limb salvage therapy with a particular focus in women.
