Abstract

Objectives: We studied associations of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)-measured superficial femoral artery (SFA) occlusions with functional performance, leg symptoms, and collateral vessel number in peripheral artery disease (PAD). We studied associations of collateral vessel number with functional performance in PAD. Background: Associations of MRI-detected SFA occlusion and collateral vessel number with functional performance among individuals with PAD have not been reported. Methods: A total of 457 participants with an ankle brachial index (ABI)
