Leg Thermotherapy for Intermittent Claudication

Peripheral arterial disease is characterized by atherosclerotic obstruction of the arteries in the lower extremities and affects approximately 10% of individuals older than 65 years. The most common clinical presentation of peripheral arterial disease is intermittent claudication, defined as leg pain caused by insufficient blood flow during walking. Individuals with ...

Phase N/A

Study to Evaluate the Lower Extremity Intervention With Integrated Embolic Protection Using the Vanguard IEP System

The ENTRAP Study is a prospective, multi-center, non-randomized, single-arm, study with follow-up to 30 days to determine the acute safety, acute device performance and clinical performance of the Vanguard IEP Peripheral Balloon Angioplasty System with Integrated Embolic Protection. The Vanguard IEP Peripheral Balloon Angioplasty System with Integrated Embolic Protection is ...

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

Pedicle Osteotomy for Stenosis Trial

LSS is a narrowing of the spinal canal and/or the intervertebral foramina by bony spurs or soft tissues that decrease space for the neural elements resulting in compression of the nerve roots or spinal cord in the lumbar region of the spine. LSS can cause low back pain, weakness, numbness, ...

Paclitaxel Eluting Stent in Long SFA Obstruction: A Prospective Randomized Comparison With Bypass Surgery

BACKGROUND Chronic lower limb ischemia due to atherosclerosis causes significant morbidity especially in elderly: the prevalence of asymptomatic obstructive peripheral atherosclerosis among 40-74 old is 4-22%. The prevalence of its milder symptomatic manifestation, intermittent claudication among 40 years old men is about 1% and among 70 years old it is ...

Does Neuromuscular Electrical Stimulation Improve the Absolute Walking Distance in Patients With Intermittent Claudication Compared to Best Available Treatment?

Intermittent claudication (IC) is caused by a blockage in the artery of the leg, causing muscle pain. Although some evidence of the efficacy of neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) in the management of patients with IC exists, further high quality research is required. This proposed study is vital to identify the ...

Phase N/A

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

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 ...

Phase N/A

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 ...

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 ...
