As an atherosclerotic disease, peripheral artery disease (PAD) is highly prevalent in the elderly population. This has been aggravated by aging populations in recent years, so its prevalence is increasingly rapid. We have searched related literature on peripheral artery disease worldwide, and reviewed and summarized studies about detection methods, diagnostic criteria and global prevalence of this disease. This provides evidence for research and prevention of PAD in populations.
