Introduction:

Ischemic heart disease and lower limb´s peripheral artery disease are still health problems because they have high prevalence rates and are major causes of morbidity and mortality.

Objective:

Identify the presence of lower limb´s peripheral artery disease in patients with ischemic heart disease.

Methods:

A descriptive, ambispective and analytical study was carried out in 167 patients with ischemic heart disease who were classified in a health area of San Miguel del Padrón municipality, Havana province. The average age of the group was 64 ± 8 years (range: 39-81). The research period spanned three years and ended in 2017. The study variables were: age, sex, risk factors (smoking, obesity, dyslipidemia, high blood pressure), ankle arm pressure index, presence of lower limb´s peripheral artery disease and its severity.

Results:

43 patients suffering a cardiopathy with lower limb´s peripheral artery disease were found for a percentage prevalence of 26%. 60.5% (n = 26) of the total were symptomatic, with equal frequency for the stage and moderate severity of the disease (51.2%). The most common risk factors were high blood pressure (83.7%) and smoking habit (81.4%), which were significantly associated (p< 0.05) with the presence of lower limb´s peripheral artery disease.

Conclusions:

Peripheral artery disease is common in patients with ischemic heart disease, and it is strongly associated with high blood pressure and smoking habit.
