Abstract

The rapid evolution of revascularization techniques has allowed an improvement in quality of life of patients with peripheral artery disease. The angiological follow-up aims to insure durable results of revascularization, to diminish risk of amputation and to limit progression of atheroma plaques. The patient history and physical examination are essential in evaluating impact of peripheral artery disease upon quality of life and insuring the appropriate control of cardiovascular risk factors.
