Peripheral artery disease (PAD) in the lower limbs is a clinical presentation of generalised atherosclerosis and is common in people aged 70 years.1, 2 Symptomatic PAD results in significant functional limitations and reduced health-related quality of life (HRQoL). 3,4 To help capture the impact of treatments provided to affected patients by Vascular Services in the UK, it is important to use appropriate PROMs for assessing patients in the relevant setting.
The aim of this review was to identify validated PROMs and to select appropriate PROMs for the clinical assessment of patients with PAD in the UK.
