Heel pressure ulcer is a major complication in elderly hospitalized patients. The association with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) which is also a frequent disease in this population is poorly known. The aim of this study was to assess the prevalence of PAD and critical limb ischemia (CLI) in patients with heel pressure ulcer.
