This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:
To determine the effectiveness of screening for PAD in asymptomatic and undiagnosed individuals in terms of reduction of all-cause mortality, cardiovascular events (e.g. myocardial infarction and stroke), morbidity from PAD (intermittent claudication, amputation, reduced walking distance) and improvement in quality of life.
