Progressive peripheral arterial obstructive disease (PAOD) represents the aspect of atherosclerotic disease allocated to the lower extremities and is considered an indicator of systemic atherosclerosis. This disease has a lethality similar to Acute Coronary Disease (CAD), and despite the high mortality and economic impact of the resulting excessive costs in the health system, patients with PAD are underdiagnosed and,consequently, undertreated. The literature on the morbidity potential of PAD still lacks data that provide sufficient robustness to the evidence of the association of PAD with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, especially with regard to death (from all causes) and its connection with other events, especially coronary (angina and infarction) and cerebrovascular (transient ischemic attack and stroke) events. The objective of this study is to outline an epidemiological risk profile for PAOD. To this end, the mapping of patients with PAD who underwent endovascular revascularization surgery in the lower extremities will be carried out, trying to correlate and estimate the prediction potential with other cardiovascular events (AMI, Angina), cerebrovascular events (Transient ischemic attack, CVA), amputations and deaths. The study is an observational cross-sectional analysis of data collected prospectively and analyzed retrospectively. The data is analyzed by reading and analyzing the electronic medical records of patients selected for the study.Key Words: Peripheral Arterial Disease, Acute Coronary Syndrome, Prognosis, Angioplasty, Stents, Coronary Artery Disease, Stroke.
