Les causes de mortalité des patients hospitalisés atteints d’artériopathie oblitérante des membres inférieurs dans la cohorte COPART à Bordeaux

Abstract : Cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of death in patients with peripheral arterial disease, especially myocardial infarction and strokes. Other causes of death are poorly described in medical literature. The aim of our study was to describe all the causes of mortality within the one-year medical follow-up and by the latest medical follow up date in hospitalized PAD patients, and to describe their survival according to their different risk factors. We have carried out a monocentric survey of all the patients included in the COPART cohort from October 11th 2006 to May 5th 2011, and deceased by the latest medical follow-up, on April 10th 2014. Data have been collected from medical records, from the COPART EPI INFO software database, by contacting general practitioners, family and nursing home. 131 patients were included in our survey, with a mean follow-up of 2 years and a median survival of 14 months. We have found out that 40% of the PAD patients died from cardiovascular diseases, 15% from infection, 14% from cancer, 3% from surgery complications, 1,5% from hemorrhage, 1,5% from sharp respiratory failure, 1% from kidney failure and 1% from suicide. Heart and kidney failure, and advanced PAD were associated with a poor survival, unlike smoking when included. Cardiovascular disease remains the leading cause of deaths in PAD patients, although infection and cancer impact is significant.
