Purpose:Hyperhomocysteinemia (HHCA) is defined as an independent risk factor for atherothrombotic vascular disease; therefore, screening for HHCA is recommended. However, the incidence and characteristics of HHCA in patients with vascular disease remain unclear. We conducted this study in an attempt to resolve these issues.
