Abstract

Objective: To assess trends in peripheral vascular procedures performed inVeterans Health Administration (VHA) facilities. Methods: All discharges with peripheral vascular procedures recorded for 1989-1998 were analyzed. The VHA user population was used to calculate age-specific rates. Trends wereevaluated using frequency tables and Poisson regression. Results: The VHA had 55,916 discharges with peripheral vascular procedures performed almost exclusively in men. Indications included peripheral vascular disease (53.7%), gangrene (19.3%), surgical complications (13.3%), and ulcers and infection (9.6%). The VHA age- specific rates were higher than US population ratesfor persons 45 to 64 years, similar for those 65 to 74 years, and lower for those 75 years and older. The age-specific rates declined slightly over the 10 years of observation, with the greatest decline noted in men age 45 to 65. Conclusion: The VHA provides almost 8% of all US peripheral vascular procedures in males. The WA age-specific rates differ from the US rates with a shift to younger patients. The rates decreased for all age groups between 1989-1998.
