Abstract

Objective: to study whether physical activity is associated with reduced occurrence of asymptomatic leg atherosclerosis. Design: longitudinal and cross-sectional analyses of the population-based cohort "men born in 1914". Methods: comparison of the systolic ankle/arm pressure index (AAI) at age 68 in groups who were sedentary, performed some activity, and performed regular physical training at 55 and 68 years of age. Results: at 55 years of age, 100 (27%) were sedentary, 209 (58%) reported some physical activity and 54 (15%) reported regular physical training. AT 68 years, 194 men (53%) reported the same degree of physical activity, 127 (35%) reported a higher physical activity, and 42 (12%) reported lower physical activity. Physical activity at 55 years (p = 0.03) and increased physical activity between 55 and 68 years (p = 0.03) were both associated with higher AAI at 68 after adjusting for potential confounders. At 68 years, AAIwas 0.89 +/-0.21, 1.01 +/-0.13 and 1.05 +/-0.11, respectively, in men who were sedentary, reported some physical activity, and regular physical training (p = 0.0003). This association remained significant after adjustments for potential confounders. Conclusions: regular physical activity is associated with reduced occurrence of asymptomatic leg atherosclerosis, even in men taking up exercise after age of 55.
