Objective: For peripheral artery disease (PAD) patients, after endovascular revascularization, it is crucial to manage associated factors that can affect the risk of major adverse events. We aimed to investigate the associated factors of major adverse events in these patients. Materials and Methods: We conducted a retrospective longitudinal analysis using the electronic medical records from a tertiary hospital in Korea and included the data of 1263 patients. Eligible patients were categorized into four groups based on diabetes mellitus (DM) and regular exercise. The major adverse events included major adverse limb events and major adverse cardiovascular events. Major adverse events-free survival was assessed using the Kaplan–Meier method, and associated factors of major adverse events were analyzed using Cox proportional hazards analyses. Results: Kaplan–Meier survival curves showed that patients with DM and non-regular exercise had a shorter major adverse events-free survival. The Cox regression analysis showed that for patients with critical limb ischemia or chronic kidney disease, the risk of major adverse events increased, while group variables were not significant. Conclusion: Target management of patients with DM, critical limb ischemia, and chronic kidney disease is essential to reduce major adverse events after endovascular revascularization in patients with PAD.
