Physical Activity, PAD, & Mortality

Regular vigorous activity appears to help decrease risks for peripheral artery disease (PAD) as well as all-cause mortality in at-risk patients, according to a study. In addition, the research showed that participants undergoing non-emergency coronary angiography who reported performing regular vigorous activity were less likely to have PAD, had higher ankle-brachial index scores, and had better cardiovascular outcomes.
