Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a frequent and serious chronic disease witch is undertreated. The recommended management of PAD include pharmacological approach and lifestyle modifications. Patient education help to reach this outcome. Our study propose to compare patient education management with physical activity coaching to usual care.

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and activity of increasing doses of MultiGeneAngio, a cell therapy product produced from the patient's own cells, as potential treatment...
One important clinical challenge in older individuals is maintaining mobility in the absence of pain. Peripheral arterial disease affects up to 12% of adults over 50 and impairs quality of...
To determine the prevalence of peripheral arterial disease in a defined population by non-invasive techniques; to evaluate the association of cardiovascular disease risk factors with perip...
The current increase in chronic diseases calls for changes to the health system. It is necessary to promote expert patient in chronic disease. The expansion of new technologies gives us ne...
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...
The report concerns a 61-year-old woman suffering from a chronic pain syndrome of peripheral arterial vascular disease. Despite level III-WHO medication she was not able to walk a distance of more...
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) has a significant negative impact on the quality of life of individuals. Understanding the experiences of people living with PAD will be useful in developing comprehe...
There is scarcity of data validating portable digital ankle-brachial index (ABI) with contrast angiography in peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Our aim was to provide an objective analysis of the rel...
The aim of the study was to show if pulse rise times (PRTs) extracted from photoplethysmographic (PPG) pulse waves (PWs) have an association with peripheral arterial disease (PAD) or its endovascular ...
Our purpose was to investigate the outcomes of different treatment strategies for in-stent restenosis (ISR) in patients with peripheral arterial disease of the lower limbs.
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.
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.
A broad approach to appropriate coordination of the entire disease treatment process that often involves shifting away from more expensive inpatient and acute care to areas such as preventive medicine, patient counseling and education, and outpatient care. This concept includes implications of appropriate versus inappropriate therapy on the overall cost and clinical outcome of a particular disease. (From Hosp Pharm 1995 Jul;30(7):596)
Thickening and loss of elasticity of the walls of medium and large muscular ARTERIES with lesions in the innermost layer of the artery (ARTERIAL INTIMA). This disease process of atherogenesis includes the retention of cholesterol-rich LIPOPROTEINS and their binding to PROTEOGLYCANS in the arterial intima, generation of proinflammatory molecules that recruit MACROPHAGES to the subendothelial space, formation of FOAM CELLS, and eventual calcification of the arterial wall. These arterial plaques (atheromas) contain CARBOHYDRATES; BLOOD; and CALCIUM.
