Abstract

OBJECTIVES: We determined whether statin use (vs. non-use) is associated with less annual decline in lower-extremity functioning in patients with and without lower-extremity peripheral arterial disease (PAD) over three-year follow-up. BACKGROUND: It is unclear whether statin use is associated with less functional decline in patients with PAD. METHODS: Participants included 332 men and women with an ankle brachial index (ABI)
