Presents an abstract for a study to determine the feasibility of using the ankle-brachial index (ABI) to detect peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in primary care practice, to describe the treatment of PAD, and to document physician and patient awareness of the diagnosis of PAD. Background; Questions; Design; Results; Commentary; Implications for practice.
