Corrigendum to “Epidemiology of lower extremity artery disease in a rural setting in Benin, West Africa: the TAHES study” [Int. J. Cardiol. 267 (2018) 198–201]

Abstract : Background: Data on epidemiology of lower extremity artery disease(LEAD) in general population in Sub-Saharan Africa are sparse. Thisstudy aims to estimate the prevalence of LEAD among participants ofTanve Health Study (TAHES), a cohort about cardiovascular diseases(CVD) in a rural setting in Benin.Methods: The cohort was launched since 2015 among adults agedover 25 years in Tanve, a village in Benin. Ankle-brachial index (ABI)was measured for thefirst time during the third annual visit of the co-hort in 2017. Risk factors data were collected using the WHO STEPSadapted questionnaire in a systematic door-to-door survey. The LEADwas defined as ABI≤0.90.Results: We recorded ABI among 1003 out of 1407 TAHES' partici-pants. A predominance of females (61.4%) was observed. The meanage was 44.4 ± 15.7 years and 49.9% were under 40 years. RegardingCVD risk factors, prevalences were estimated for sedentary behavior(68.2%), harmful use of alcohol (3.9%), fruit and vegetable low intake(96.0%), tobacco smoking (5.2%), Overweight or obesity (Body massindexN25) (27.7%), raised blood pressure (36.8%) and raised bloodglucose (5.4%). Prevalence of LEAD was 5.5% (95%CI: 4.2%–7.1%) in thesample, 7.0% (95%CI: 5.1%–9.4%) in women and 3.1% (95%CI: 1.7%–5.5%)in men. Fiveindividuals (0.5%; 95%CI: 0.2%–1.2%) had incompress-ible arteries (ABI≥1.40), including four men. In multivariate analysis,LEAD was significantly associated with age≥55 years (OR: 2.17;95%CI: 1.20–3.92; p = 0.009) and female gender (OR: 2.27; 95%CI:1.17–4.40; p = 0.014).Conclusion: Prevalence of LEAD is high in rural Benin and predomi-nates among women and people over 55 years old.The authors would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused.
