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...
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...
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...
Consensus guidelines from the European Crohns and Colitis Organisation conclude that optimising quality of care in inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) involves information and education. However there is...
Vitamin D deficiency patients have an increased cardiovascular (CV) morbidity and mortality. Contrasting data are available about the association between peripheral arterial disease (PAD) and Vitamin ...
Until now, no study has investigated the risks of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) and peripheral arterial disease (PAD) in cirrhosis.
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.
