Both Gurley and Hudspeth were diagnosed with chronic atherosclerotic peripheral vascular disease, according to Edwards.
Conclusion: Peripheral vascular disease among soldiers and families show advanced disease pattern at presentation.
From this illustration, we conclude that we have three groups of factors: most factors positively close to PC2 axis seem to be risk factors for foot mycosis, whereas most factors positively close to PC1 axis (sex, family history, wearing used shoes, nail trauma, immunosuppressive drugs, season, and peripheral vascular disease) seem to be with no risk; however, the group of factors negatively close to PC1 axis (physical activities, pedicure, occlusive shoes, diabetes, walking barefoot, swimming pools, smoking, thermal station, associated fingernail onychomycosis, dermatological pathology, obesity, fungal infection of the skin, psoriasis, application of henna, and autoimmune disease) are protectors from risk.

We observed fungal infections more frequently in the presence of poor glycemic control and peripheral vascular disease in diabetic patients.
Peripheral vascular disease may be frequently associated in diabetes mellitus type II with its main symptom, intermittent claudication.
In a new retrospective observational study, patients with gout had an elevated risk for peripheral vascular disease. Hyperuricemia (excess uric acid) is a recognized risk factor for cardiovascular disease, but the association with gout attacks is controversial, mainly because gout comprises both acute attacks as well as non-acute crystal deposition, which is persistent in creating inflammation able to potentiate cardiovascular disease.
During 8 years of follow-up, the subjects with PTSD had significantly higher rates of incident cerebrovascular disease, acute myocardial infarction, heart failure, and peripheral vascular disease than those without a current diagnosis of PTSD.
Data was examined in terms of age, gender, diabetes mellitus, hypertension, smoking, peripheral vascular disease, pre-operative serum creatinine, history of congestive heart failure, left ventricular ejection fraction, previous infarction and cardiac functional capacity.
Cardiologists mainly from Athens, Greece, address the role of biomarkers like C-reactive protein, interleukins, fibrinogen, peptides, adhesion molecules, microRNAs, and proinflammatory cytokines in early atherosclerosis, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, acute coronary syndromes, congestive heart failure, pulmonary embolism, coronary artery bypass grafting, peripheral vascular disease, cardiorenal syndrome, coronary artery disease, heart failure, cardiac arrhythmias, and antiplatelet treatment, as well as the role of genetics and genomics.
Among men who did not have previous cardiovascular disease diagnoses, those classified as having severe ED had a 60% greater risk of ischemic heart disease, an eight times greater risk of heart failure, a 92% higher risk of peripheral vascular disease and a 93% greater chance of dying over follow-up in comparison with men who did not report ED.
