Munakomi, S. et. al.

Jun 3rd, 2019 - Approximately 90% of the population will present with low back pain at some point in their lifetime. Spinal stenosis is a condition that is caused by the narrowing of the central canal, the lateral recess, or neural foramen. This is a condition that can cause significant discomfort, interfere with activities of daily living, and may result in progressive disability.With increasing longevity of...

The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews; Lane, R. et. al.

Dec 25th, 2017 - Exercise programmes are a relatively inexpensive, low‐risk option compared with other, more invasive therapies for treatment of leg pain on walking (intermittent claudication (IC)). This is the fourth update of a review first published in 1998. Objectives Our goal was to determine whether an exercise programme was effective in alleviating symptoms and increasing walking treadmill distances ...

Lancet (London, England); Gray WA, Keirse K et. al.

Sep 28th, 2018 - The clinical effect of a drug-eluting stent in the femoropopliteal segment has not been investigated in a randomised trial with a contemporary comparator. The IMPERIAL study sought to compare the safety and efficacy of the polymer-coated, paclitaxel-eluting Eluvia stent with the polymer-free, paclitaxel-coated Zilver PTX stent for treatment of femoropopliteal artery segment lesions. In this ran...

Apr 29th, 2016 - Intermittent claudication (IC) is a common and debilitating symptom of peripheral arterial disease and is associated with a significant reduction in a sufferer's quality of life. Guidelines recommend a supervised exercise program (SEP) as the primary treatment option; however, anecdotally there is a low participation rate for exercise in this group of patients. We undertook a systematic review ...

Annals of Vascular Surgery; Harwood AE, Cayton T et. al.

Sep 12th, 2015 - Intermittent claudication (IC) is a common condition which is associated with significant quality of life limitation. National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guidelines recommend a group-based supervised exercise program as the primary treatment option for claudication, based on clinical and cost effectiveness. This review aims to assess the mechanisms by which exercise improves outco...

American Heart Journal; Vemulapalli S, Dolor RJ et. al.

Jun 1st, 2015 - Supervised exercise (SE) is widely accepted as an effective therapy for intermittent claudication (IC), but its use is limited by cost. Unsupervised exercise (UE) represents a less costly alternative. We assessed the comparative effectiveness of SE vs UE in patients with IC. We searched PubMed, EMBASE, and the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews and identified 27 unique studies (24 randomiz...

Circulation Nordanstig J, Taft C et. al.

Aug 6th, 2014 - The quality of evidence for invasive revascularization in intermittent claudication is low or very low. This prospective, randomized, controlled study tested the hypothesis that an invasive treatment strategy versus continued noninvasive treatment improves health-related quality of life after 1 year in unselected patients with intermittent claudication. After clinical and duplex ultrasound asse...

The British Journal of Surgery; Mazari FA, Khan JA et. al.

Jul 11th, 2013 - The aim was to compare costs and utilities of percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA), a supervised exercise programme (SEP) and combined treatment (PTA + SEP) in patients with intermittent claudication (IC) to establish the most cost-effective treatment. Patients with IC due to femoropopliteal disease were randomized to receive PTA, SEP or PTA + SEP. Assessments were performed before, and ...

Journal of Vascular Surgery; Frans FA, Zagers MB et. al.

Jan 14th, 2013 - Physicians and patients consider the limited walking distance and perceived disability when they make decisions regarding (invasive) treatment of intermittent claudication (IC). We investigated the relationship between walking distances estimated by the patient, on the corridor and on a treadmill, and the Walking Impairment Questionnaire (WIQ) in patients with IC due to peripheral arterial dise...

Journal of Vascular Surgery; Fakhry F, van de Luijtgaarden KM et. al.

Oct 2nd, 2012 - Exercise therapy is a common intervention for the management of intermittent claudication (IC). However, considerable uncertainty remains about the effect of different exercise components such as intensity, duration, or content of the exercise programs. The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness of supervised walking therapy (SWT) as treatment in patients with IC and to update and id...

The American Journal of Cardiology; Prushik SG, Farber A et. al.

Dec 13th, 2011 - Little is known about the familial aggregation of intermittent claudication (IC). Our objective was to examine whether parental IC increased the risk of IC in adult offspring, independent of the established cardiovascular risk factors. We evaluated the Offspring Cohort Participants of the Framingham Heart Study who were ≥30 years old, cardiovascular disease free, and had both parents enrolled i...

The British Journal of Surgery; Cunningham MA, Swanson V et. al.

Oct 31st, 2011 - Increased walking is often recommended for patients with intermittent claudication (IC). Current methods to increase walking in these patients increase capability but not daily behaviour. This trial assessed whether a brief psychological intervention could increase daily walking at 4 months. This randomized, single-centre, parallel-group trial was conducted between April 2008 and July 2010. Pat...

Oct 13th, 2011 - To evaluate the role of endovascular therapy in the management of infrainguinal arterial chronic total occlusions (CTOs). Data on all patients with CTOs treated at a single center from 2004 to 2010 were extracted from a prospectively maintained database for retrospective analysis. Patient demographics, angiographic studies, noninvasive vascular test results, and clinical outcomes were evaluated...

Journal of Vascular Surgery; Dosluoglu HH, Lall P et. al.

Mar 22nd, 2010 - The goal was to compare the outcomes in patients with disabling claudication (DC) or critical limb ischemia (CLI) to determine if diabetics (DM) have poorer patency, limb salvage (LS), and survival rates than nondiabetic patients and if the diabetic regimen affects these outcomes. All patients who presented with DC or CLI between June 2001 and September 2008 were included. Non-DM patients were ...

Pediatric Nephrology (Berlin, Germany); Sethna CB, Kaplan BS et. al.

Mar 5th, 2008 - Mid-aortic syndrome (MAS) is an uncommon condition characterized by narrowing of the abdominal aorta and stenosis of its major branches. Our goal was to illustrate the presentation, diagnosis and management of six new cases of idiopathic MAS together with 96 cases of idiopathic MAS from the literature. The mean age of the 102 cases was 14.3 years (19 days to 49 years). Our patient who presented...
