RESULTS

Found (32) clinical trials

Claudication, or calf pain, is often a symptom related to a more serious disorder called peripheral vascular disease. PVD refers to blood vessel disease outside the heart and brain. Most commonly it is caused by a narrowing of the vessels that carry blood to muscles in the legs and arms, ...

Phase N/A

Comparison of Prevena Negative Pressure Incision Management System vs. Standard Dressing After Vascular Surgery

Complications such as surgical site infections, deep wound infections, prosthetic graft infections, and non-infections problems such as wound dehiscence continue to cause significant morbidity for patients undergoing arterial reconstruction for peripheral arterial disease. Patients undergoing leg bypass surgery for limb salvage are at particular risk due to their medical problems ...

Treatment of SFA Lesions With 480 Biomedical STANZA Drug-Eluting Resorbable Scaffold (DRS) System

The STANZA DRS system is comprised of a controlled release paclitaxel-eluting bioresorbable scaffold and a delivery system used in the treatment of superficial femoral artery disease.

ATHERO: Advanced Technology Halting Early Re-Stenosis and Occlusion

Peripheral arterial disease affects more than 12 million Americans, and its incidence is growing annually. The male/female ratio of patients with claudication is just under 2/1. The arteries involved by atherosclerosis involve the arteries to the thigh and leg. These include the femoral and popliteal arteries. Fifty percent of people ...

Hospital- and Home-based Supervised Exercise Versus UNsupervised Walk Advice For Patients With InTermittent Claudication

Background Intermittent claudication is usually caused by atherosclerotic stenoses and/or occlusions in the arteries to the legs and affects 7% of the Swedish population aged 60 years or more. Evidence-based treatment is best medical treatment (BMT) and exercise therapy. Best medical treatment includes treatment of risk factors for arteriosclerosis. Regarding ...

The PaWS (Pedometer and Walking Study)

It has been established that exercise therapy has a central role in the management of peripheral arterial disease. Such treatment should be comprised of intermittent walking of sufficient distance to induce significant discomfort, and be carried out over a period of at least several months. Supervised exercise training utilizing intermittent ...

Ramipril Treatment of Claudication

This is an interventional study of PAD patients that exhibit claudication. The purpose of this study is to determine the potential mechanisms by which Ramipril vastly improves the walking performance of these patients. The study will be achieved through these specific aims Specific Aim #1: Test the hypothesis that Ramipril-mediated ...

Lower Extremity Peripheral Arterial Disease and Exercise Ischemia

Primary Outcome Measure : Coefficient of determination between the recovery duration and subsequent walking performance, obtained from individual regression analyses. Secondary outcome measures : Coefficient of determination determined from different curves fitting. Coefficient of correlation between the level of ischemia during recovery and exercise ischemia and pain occurrence during subsequent ...

Oral Nutritional Supplement in Reducing Surgical Site Infections

Surgical incisions are associated with a number of possible complications. The reported incidence of surgical site infections at the groin after vascular procedures is between 3% and 30%. This incidence is up to five times higher than the expected incidence of infection in clean cases. Risk factors for postoperative surgical ...
