Acute Lower Leg Heating Increases Exercise Capacity in Patients With Peripheral Artery Disease.

Acute Lower Leg Heating Increases Exercise Capacity in Patients With Peripheral Artery Disease. J Cardiovasc Nurs. 2018 Jul 18;: Authors: Pellinger TK, Neighbors CB, Simmons GH Abstract BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVE: In this pilot study, we tested the hypothesis that acute lower leg heating (LLH) increases postheating popliteal artery blood flow and 6-minute walk distance in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD). METHODS: Six patients (5 male, 1 female) with PAD (69 ± 6.9 years; claudication: ankle-brachial index

Sex-related differences in outcomes have been identified in patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD). We hypothesized that women with PAD would have equivalent inpatient mortality with men following vascular intervention.

Notably, cell-based gene therapy to induce angiogenesis in ischemic tissue has been investigated as treatment. Despite many studies demonstrating the efficacy of this approach, better therapies are required to prevent serious sequelae such as claudication, amputation and other cardiovascular events. We have now established a simplified m...

Abstract Lower extremity peripheral artery disease (PAD) affects 12% to 20% of Americans 60 years and older. The most significant risk factors for PAD are hyperlipidemia, hypertension, diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, and smoking; the presence of three or more factors confers a 10-fold increase in PAD risk. Intermittent claudication is the hallmark of atherosclerotic lower extremity PAD, but only about 10% of patients with PAD experience intermittent claudication. A variety of leg symptoms that differ from classic claudication affects 50% of patients, and 40% have no leg symptoms at all. Current guidelin...

The most common clinical presentation of peripheral artery disease (PAD) comprises intermittent claudication though about one third of patients will progress to below-the-knee critical limb ischemia. Currently, percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) is the standard endovascular therapy employed in this patient population. The Lutonix BTK  IDE multicenter randomized study was conducted to assess the safety and efficacy of the Lutonix DCB for the treatment of stenosis or occlusion of native below-the-knee arteries.

Abstract BACKGROUND: Supervised exercise is recommended for the management of peripheral artery disease (PAD); however, the uptake is limited. Structured home exercise programmes may be more feasible, but their effectiveness is unclear. This systematic review and meta-analysis examined the benefit of structured home exercise programmes for treating PAD in comparison to controls not receiving an exercise programme. METHODS: A literature search was conducted to identify RCTs comparing structured home exercise with controls not receiving an exercise programme among patients with PAD. To be included, studies had ...

Objective: To evaluate the association between peripheral artery disease (PAD) and major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE) in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) in the Arabian Gulf. Methods: Data was analyzed from 4044 consecutive patients diagnosed with ACS admitted to 29 hospitals in four Arabian Gulf countries from January 2012 to January 2013. PAD was defined as any of the following: claudication, amputation for arterial vascular insufficiency, vascular reconstruction, bypass surgery, or percutaneous intervention in the extremities, documented aortic aneurysm or ankle brachial index of
