It is hypothesized that patients with vascular disease are undertreated for modifiable risk factors, leading to increased morbidity and mortality in this population.

The objective of this study is to develop a comprehensive database that will demonstrate the current adequacy of risk factor management in this high risk population, and that will provide needed guidance for future treatment options.
