Found (20) 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

Swedish Drug-elution Trial in Peripheral Arterial Disease

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) causes reduced blood flow to the lower limb(s) due to stenosis or occlusion in the supplying arteries. Symptoms of PAD range from ischemic rest pain and/or ischemic ulcers/gangrene (critical limb ischemia), putting the extremity at risk of amputation, to exercise-induced pain (intermittent claudication), limiting the patients ...

Adjuvant Benefit of NMES to Supervised Exercise in Patients With IC

The circulation of blood around the body is dependent on effective pumping of the heart. Patients with claudication experience pain or discomfort in their legs usually during activity such as walking, which goes away at rest. Claudication is a symptom of peripheral arterial disease (PAD). If left untreated, patients can ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

Exercise Rehabilitation in Veterans With PAD

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) and its associated declines in physical function impair quality of life (QOL) in nearly 20% of older Veterans and result in substantial VA health care costs. Revascularization addresses the anatomical pathology, but does not restore mobility function and QOL. Optimal therapy may require post-revascularization rehabilitation to ...

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 ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

Phase N/A

Creatine Supplementation in Patients With Intermittent Claudication.

The aim of this study will be to verify the effect of creatine supplementation associated to clinical treatment of the functional capacity in patients with intermittent claudication. The sample will be composed by patients with intermittent claudication of both sexes. The patients will be ramdomized in a double-blind procedure to ...
