Yale researchers call for strategies to eliminate inequities in access to peripheral artery disease care among adults who share a Hispanic background
Adults who share a Hispanic background and who get hospitalized for symptoms of peripheral artery disease (PAD) are more likely to only receive care at later stages of their disease, and get their treatment through the emergency department instead of early stage disease care, elective care as compared with non-Hispanic white patients.
