The objective of this study is to investigate what the value is of SET after a radiological or surgical intervention for peripheral arterial disease in the aorto-iliacal, femoro-popliteal ...
This study proposes the use of a novel medication, cenderitide, designed by molecular engineering, to test the effects on pain free walking duration for patients with peripheral arterial d...
FGF-1 for the treatment of patients with peripheral arterial disease with intermittent claudication.
The main purpose of this study is to see if it is safe and feasible to use cardiac rehabilitation (CR) in patients with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) after successful revascularization...
The purpose of this study is to assess the efficiency of outpatient surgery compared to conventional hospitalization in endovascular treatment of occlusive arterial disease. A cost-utility...
Peripheral arterial disease is a major cause of morbidity and disability and has been consistently associated with an adverse overall prognosis. Oxidative stress has been linked to vascular disease, w...
Current management of peripheral arterial disease involves risk factor modification and revascularisation, but many patients are still left with debilitating symptoms. Therefore, new treatment strateg...
Inflammation is pivotally involved in coronary and peripheral atherosclerotic disease. This established concept is based on both experimental animal models of vascular inflammation and Mendelian rando...
Identification of factors interfering with adequate control of arterial hypertension in the course of antihypertensive therapy is necessary to plan the strategy or reducing the incidence of cardiovasc...
Despite worldwide reductions in active smoking, non-smokers continue to be exposed to environmental tobacco smoke, especially at home or workplace. There is a well-recognised association between activ...
Regional infusion of drugs via an arterial catheter. Often a pump is used to impel the drug through the catheter. Used in therapy of cancer, upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage, infection, and peripheral vascular disease.
Treatment of disease by inserting needles along specific pathways or meridians. The placement varies with the disease being treated. It is sometimes used in conjunction with heat, moxibustion, acupressure, or electric stimulation.
Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
A respiratory stimulant that enhances respiration by acting as an agonist of peripheral chemoreceptors located on the carotid bodies. The drug increases arterial oxygen tension while decreasing arterial carbon dioxide tension in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. It may also prove useful in the treatment of nocturnal oxygen desaturation without impairing the quality of sleep.
Lack of perfusion in the EXTREMITIES resulting from atherosclerosis. It is characterized by INTERMITTENT CLAUDICATION, and an ANKLE BRACHIAL INDEX of 0.9 or less.
