1. Summary

Abstract for the general public

Peripheral artery disease causes significant impairment in mobility and physical capacity, largely due to chronic ischaemia of lower limb skeletal muscle. This study will assess the association between lower limb ischaemia and skeletal muscle changes, and the impact of skeletal muscle degeneration on cardiovascular and all-cause mortality.
