Abstract

Objectives: We studied associations of borderline and low normal ankle-brachial index (ABI) values with functional decline over a 5-year follow-up. Background: The associations of borderline and low normal ABI with functional decline are unknown. Methods: The 666 participants included 412 with peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Participants were categorized as follows: severe PAD (ABI
