Exercise Programs in Peripheral Artery Disease

Exercise Programs in Peripheral Artery Disease

Programmed exercises are recommended as initial management strategy for patients with peripheral artery disease (PAD). Most exercise programs include supervised treadmill walking twice or three times a week in a strategic facility (such as a gym). PAD patients often give up on these programs seeing as they might find it difficult to keep to a

HIV and Peripheral Artery Disease: Acknowledging the Association

The role of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in the development of vascular disease (specifically peripheral artery disease) remains unclear. Is the virus per se the direct cause of this disease or is it a consequence of dyslipidemia, one of the adverse effects of antiretrovirals? This study looked into the effect of HIV infection on peripheral

What’s New in the European Guidelines on Peripheral Arterial Disease

Since the last version of the European guidelines on the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral arterial disease in 2011, there have been many trials and registries that warrant guideline adjustments in many aspects. The first novelty is the teamwork that gave way to these guidelines, which were written in collaboration with the European Society of

Statin Pre-Treatment for the Prevention of Peri-Procedural Events in Carotid Artery Stenting

What is the effect of statins on amputations, and survival in peripheral vascular disease?

The prevalence of peripheral arterial disease is between 15% and 20% of patients older than 65 years and its severity is greatly underestimated. In fact, annual mortality is higher in patients with peripheral arterial disease (8.2%) than in those after acute myocardial infarction (6.3%). Despite the above, medical advice and efforts to modify risk factors
