This review focuses on the new recommendations for clinical evaluation, diagnosis and medical treatment of patients with the disease. Careful clinical evaluation is therefore essential.

This classification can vary, however, because a subset of patients who are initially classified in stage I, have pain only with specific forms of exercise or only induced with extreme exercise as mentioned earlier. Endovascular therapy was slightly superior to surgery in the long term. Declining ankle brachial index is directly proportional to the risk of coronary events 9.

BMC Cardiovasc Disord ; N Engl J Med ; Effects of simvastatin on walking performance and symptoms of intermittent claudication in hypercholesterolemic patients with peripheral vascular disease. A total of patients were included from all studies, and the treatment period ranged from 12 to 24 weeks.

Both methods improved significantly walking distance and quality of life of patients, whilst resistance training had a better effect on overall functional performance measured by walking distance, quality of life questionnaire and step climbing ability The spectrum of the disease can range from asymptomatic patients which constitute the majority of patientspatients with intermittent claudication and patients with rest pain and critical ischemia.

It is imperative to gather additional information regarding other vascular beds coronary and cerebral and other risk factors for atherosclerosis. Trans- atlantic Intersociety Consensus T. The multimodal medical management, using statins, vasodilator agents, platelet aggregation inhibitor therapy and exercise training is not only limited to patients with concurrent disease. Fontaine is based on clinical symptoms and signs rather than diagnostical findings. A clinical practice guideline for treating tobacco use and dependence: This has been consistently demonstrated in additional trials using walking distance and quality of life as measures of the effect of statins on PAD The use of antiplatelet agents, Cilostazol and statins should be liberal, unless contraindicated.

Arterio- scler Thromb Vasc Biol ; Ankle Brachial Pressure Index The ankle brachial pressure index ABPI is one of the most useful tools to evaluate the state and prognosis of patients with PAD due to its high sensitivity and specificity Blinded comparison of preoperative duplex ultrasound scanning and contrast arteriography for planning revascularization at the level of the tibia.

Fontaine and Rutherford, the former is widely adopted and used in most publications. Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews 2: Medical management is now the first choice, and an improvement of claudication and quality of health can be achieved using a combination of statins, platelet aggregation inhibitors and the new inhibitor of cyclic AMP adenosin monophosfateCilostazol. A summary of the management algorithm is depicted in figure 1.

The tobacco use and dependence clinical practice guideline Panel S, and Consortium Representatives. Am J Med ; 5: Randomised trial of cholesterol lowering in patients with coronary heart disease: It is by means of this mechanism that a subgroup of patients, who slowly develop stenotic lesions over time, become more adept at using this limited blood supply and can be asymptomatic at the time of consultation, even in the absence of palpable distal pulses.


Br Med J ; The recommendation thus stands on the use of statins at adequate dosages. It also has antiplatelet effects, and potentially beneficial effects on plasma lipoprotein levels.

Cochrane published a systematic review of the literature in Public Health Service, such as the use of nicotine patches, inhalers, gum or bupropion Prostanoids for intermittent claudication. Several studies attempting to address this issue have been published recently. Multiple risk factors have been associated with these high mortality rates, such as tobacco use, advanced age, dialysis dependence and diabetes.


Surgery, once the preferred treatment artfrial for intermittent claudication, is not longer the treatment of choice for patients with this presentation.

Bi-dimensional and color imaging of peripheral arteries is a very sensitive and specific diagnostic tool that can help the treating physician to understand the disease and evaluate the state of collateral blood flow. Can duplex scan arterial mapping replace contrast arteriography as the test of choice before infrainguinal revascularization?

However, when the combination of normal clinical signs and pwriferica risk factors are present, the physician can safely rule out PAD. PGE1 and other prostaglandins in the treatment of intermittent claudication: Ankle-arm index as a marker of atherosclerosis in the Cardiovascular Health Study. Am J Cardiol ; The authors found similar results comparing all randomized trials included.

Enfermedad arterial periférica (PAD)

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. The relationship be- tween calf blood flow and ankle blood pressure in patients with intermittent claudication. Masterclass series in peripheral arterial disease.

A risk profile from the Framingham Heart Study. It is also very useful in determining the outcomes of any therapeutical approach Chronic lower extremity ischemia. The most recent indication is to use PGE1 in patients who are unable to tolerate exercise training.

The fate of the claudicant: The cuff is inflated above the highest systolic pressure, then measured and deflated at a rate of 3mmHg per second.
