  • Patients with symptomatic PAD, but without an antecedent cardiovascular history, are less likely to be optimally managed with statins and antiplatelet therapy preoperatively. Given the established role of these medications in the optimal medical management of patients with PAD, this presents an opportunity for improvement in the overall vascular care of patients undergoing intervention for symptomatic PAD at VSGGNY centers.
