[Research Presentation] Background. The study evaluates occurrence of depression symptoms in patients with peripheral arterial occlusive disease (PAOD), quality of life (QoL) in patients with PAOD, and effect of age and Fontaine stage of PAOD on gravity of depression symptoms and on QoL in patients with PAOD. Patients and Method: The study is prospective and cross-sectional. Dates were obtained during year 2006. The total number of respondents was 42 (28 male, 14 female). The average age of all respondents was 65, 4 years. The evaluation of occurrence of depression symptoms was performed by means of self-assessment Zung-SDS and evaluation of QoL was performed by means of Czech version of international generic European Quality of Life Questionnaire - EQ-5D Version. Statistical analysis was determined by means of analysis of variance and descriptive analysis for evaluation of QoL questionnaire. Results: The mean index of depression (SDS index) certifies the presence of signs of minimum or light depression in patients with PAOD. The QoL in patients with PAOD is on low level. The above-mentioned aspects proved statistically significant dependence of QoL in patients with PAOD on depression (p<0,001), on age (p<0,01) and on Fontaine's stage of PAOD (p<0,01). We proved statistically significant dependence of depression in patients with PAOD on age (p<0,01) and on Fontaine stage of PAOD (p<0,01). Conclusion: The results show the existence of the association between PAOD and depression symptoms with its negative effect on QoL in patients with PAOD.
