Effect of simvastatin versus placebo on treadmill exercise time until the onset of intermittent claudication in older patients with peripheral arterial disease at six months and at one year after treatment. The method for calculating the index is the enfeemedad of the highest ankle systolic pressure divided by the highest brachial systolic pressure in each side In sedentary patients symptoms may therefore not be apparent initially unless a stress test is applied.

Rev CES Med ;24 2: The authors found similar results comparing all randomized trials included. This was the first study to show direct evidence of the perifegica of low dose aspirin in this context and current recommendations include the use of a low dose platelet aggregation inhibitor agent, but not combination therapy. Scandinavian, Simvastatin, Survival, Study, Group.

Med Decis Making ; As the life expectancy increases due to advances in medicine, vascular diseases have become increasingly frequent, creating the need to diagnose and treat PAD in early stages.

Understanding medical treatment in lower limb peripheral arterial disease

Other diagnostic methods such as arteriography, magnetic resonance angiography and CT angiography are usually reserved to make decisions on interventional or surgical procedures, and not for making diagnosis of the disease, as these modalities are prone to complications related oflusiva puncture, contrast and irradiation This wide spectrum of alternatives results in patients with PAD not being detected early while management options remain widely unknown to general practitioners 1.


A summary of the management algorithm is depicted in figure 1. A more recent randomized controlled trial published incompared resistance training vs. It can be very challenging for the specialist to identify other causes of leg pain, especially those caused by nerve entrapment by a herniated disc or ostephyte at the lumbar root level, as this too can cause pain on walking and standing, or at oclusiav. Am J Med ; 5: Perifwrica series in peripheral arterial disease. It is also very oclsuiva in determining the outcomes of any therapeutical approach Fontaine is based on clinical symptoms and signs rather than diagnostical findings.

Very interestingly, the majority of patients are still unaware of the effects of smoking on PAD. Circulation ; Suppl 4: Cochrane published a systematic review of aterial literature in Eur J Vasc En- dovasc Surg.

Enfermedad arterial periférica (PAD)

A recent survey by Taylor et al. Randomised trial of cholesterol lowering in patients with coronary heart disease: Comparison enfeermedad the results of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and stenting with medical treatment for claudicants who have superficial femoral artery occlusive disease.

Traditionally, these therapies have been used in patients with inoperable disease and when all other medical treatment options have been exhausted. Risk factor modification is essential, including quitting smoking, strict control of hypertension and glucose levels.


A risk profile from the Framingham Heart Study. The exact mechanisms by which it improves claudication distance are still unknown and additional effects may explain them Do current outcomes justify more liberal use of revascularization for vasculogenic claudication?

Endovascular therapy was slightly superior to surgery in the long term. There are two main classification systems: They found a direct connection between ABPI and walking distance on a 6 minute treadmill test. Antiplatelet Trialists ColaborationCollaborative overview of randomised trials of antiplatelet therapy-I: A clinical practice guideline for treating tobacco use and dependence: Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2: Drug therapy for improving walking distance in intermittent claudication: Prostanoids for intermittent claudication.


Symptoms only occur when the demand for oxygen is higher than the blood supply in the presence of stenotic lesions of peripheral arteries.

Surgical treatment of peripheral circulation disorders in German. More than 10 randomized controlled studies have recently proven that increasing muscle exercise increases muscle adaptation and thus improvement of symptoms. Currently these indications are being revisited as a result of a recent metaanalysis published in by Amendt PGE1 and other prostaglandins in the treatment of intermittent claudication: Cochrane Database Syst Rev.

Similarly, in the Italian study, additional to walking distance, ABPI and quality of life was measured with or without simvastatin treatment.

Duplex assessment of run-off before femorocrural reconstruction. The prevalence of peripheral arterial disease in a defined population. Peripheral arterial disease versus other localizations of vascular disease: Ankle-arm index as a marker ocpusiva atherosclerosis in the Cardiovascular Health Study.

Functional assessment of the degree of arterial compromise can be achieved by asking the patient to describe the nature of the symptoms, at what distance usually measured in meters they occur, if the pain subsides after walking and if it’s present at rest or forces him to leave his bed at nighttime.
