The researchers found that 26 % of the survivors had asymptomatic PAD, and they had three times more subsequent cardiovascular events – stroke, heart attack or death – in the next two years compared to those without PAD. Fifty % with asymptomatic PAD suffered subsequent events, compared to 16 % of people without the disease. In addition, PAD was significantly associated with future vascular events, especially stroke.

This is one of the first studies to find an independent positive association between asymptomatic PAD and cardiovascular events among stroke and TIA patients, the researchers said.
