Consensus Opinion

He has left popliteal and bi-lateral crural vessel disease, so potential left Superficial Femoral artery blockage, would assess further. The Doppler signals need to be put in to context of all the clinical findings, the next assessment should be an Ankle Brachial Pressure Index (ABPI) alongside history of symptoms to confirm if it is intermittent claudication (IC). This type of bi- lateral IC description without any symptom analysis is typical outside the vascular world, more can be done to assess for IC properly.
