Abstract
Results: Patients after endovascular and/or surgical revascularization (most with AB's 0.5-0.89 and without cognitive impairment), had similarly lower QoL, GDS and LS indicated more depression than their controls. Conclusion: Poor QoL and depression should be thoroughly considered, alongside proper follow-up and ABI-measurements. (C) 2010 European Society for Vascular Surgery. Published by Elsevier Ltd.
