Public Comment on Two Draft Recommendation Statements and Draft Evidence Reviews: Screening for PAD and CVD Risk Assessment With the ABI and Risk Assessment for CVD With Nontraditional Risk Factors

January 16, 2018 – The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force seeks comments on draft recommendation statements and draft evidence reviews on two topics: screening for peripheral artery disease (PAD) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) risk assessment with the ankle-brachial index (ABI) and risk assessment for CVD with nontraditional risk factors. The Task Force found insufficient evidence on screening for PAD and CVD risk assessment with the ABI. The Task Force also found insufficient evidence on CVD risk assessment using three nontraditional risk factors. The draft recommendation statements and draft evidence reviews are available for review and public comment from January 16, 2018 to February 12, 2018 at /uspstf/public-comments-and-nominations.
