The risk of undergoing femoropopliteal peripheral vascular intervention (PVI) was higher in Black or low-income adults with peripheral artery disease (PAD) than in White or high-income adults with PAD, respectively. In addition, health outcomes after PVI were worse in low-income adults or Black adults. This effect may be mediated by a higher burden of comorbidities. Targeted efforts should be made to improve the reported disparities between subpopulations [1]. Previous research has shown that Black adults demonstrate a higher prevalence of PAD than White adults and that low-income adults show a higher prevalence of PAD than high-income adults. In addition, Black or low-income adults show higher amputation rates [2]. In the current study, Dr Anna Krawisz (Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, MA, USA) and colleagues aimed to investigate the possible association of race and income on PVI occurrence and associated outcomes [1]. Between 2016 and 2018, data was...
