Assessment of the peripheral arterial system Age is a major independent risk factor for the development of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). 27 Given that many older people with asymptomatic PAD have evidence of subclinical cardiovascular disease, lower limb arterial supply has been described as one of the ‘vital signs’ of an older person’s health status,28 and footcare specialists are well placed to detect early signs of vascular disease in asymptomatic older people. 29 The classical early presentation of ischaemically induced pain is intermittent claudication, a tight, cramping pain in the calf region (or, less commonly, in the thigh, buttocks or foot) that occurs when walking and is relieved by rest.

Within wound grade there are four stages: clean wounds (stage A), non-ischaemic infected wounds (stage B), ischaemic noninfected wounds (stage C) and ischaemic infected wounds (stage D). 25 Management of wounds is discussed in Chapter 7. VASCULAR ASSESSMENT As outlined in Chapter 2, ageing is associated with significant changes in the structure and function of peripheral blood vessels, resulting in reduced function of both the peripheral arterial and venous systems. These changes commonly manifest in the foot and ankle, increasing the risk of arterial insufficiency, venous stasis and ulceration.
