Abstract

Introduction: Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is a common disabling condition associated with many of the same risk factors as coronary heart disease. It has been suggested that periodontal disease is a risk factor for coronary heart disease but its relationship to peripheral vascular disease is under-researched. We therefore sought to evaluate the relationship of periodontal disease to PVD. Methods: The study population consisted of 3585 participants who were 40 years or older when examined in National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) during 1999-2002. PVD was defined as an ankle-brachial index (ABI)
