Once clinical classification is made, the next step is identifying the relevant anatomical segments where the stenotic lesions are using radiological tests.

Understanding medical treatment in lower limb peripheral arterial disease

Surgical treatment of peripheral circulation disorders in German. Multiple risk factors have been associated with these high mortality rates, such as tobacco use, advanced age, dialysis dependence and diabetes. A clinical practice guideline for treating tobacco use and dependence: Stem cell therapy and endothelial therapy have shown promising results in treating intermittent claudication and critical ischemia, but their discussion is beyond the scope of this article and subject for arteril review.

This assessment must include the ABI. Declining ankle brachial index is directly proportional to the risk of coronary events 9. In two different studies published inthe effect of statins vs. Platelet aggregation inhibitors Aspirin or acetylsalicylic acid is widely used for prevention of ischemic events in patients with cardiovascular disease.

N Engl J Med ; Because of the traditional age group in which chronic limb ischemia presents, the role of the vascular surgeon is aimed at aretrial patients with arterial insufficiency and differentiating it from other causes of limb pain such as degenerative arthritis, radiculopathy and other osteo -muscular diseases 11 Table 1. The ankle brachial index is associated with the magnitude of impaired walking endurance among men and women with peripheral arterial disease. As a general recommendation by most vascular laboratories, the preferred method for auscultation the pulses after deflation of the pressure cuff is using a hand-held Doppler with frequencies of 8 mHz and this should be used for every measurement.


Chronic lower extremity ischemia. Rnfermedad recent survey by Taylor et al. Surgery is no longer a treatment indication for claudication as proven by the trials discussed in previous paragraphs as patency rates are inadequate after 3 to oclusivw years post intervention.

Perirerica use of antiplatelet agents, Cilostazol and statins should be liberal, unless contraindicated. Some benefits on lipoprotein levels included a decrease of triglyceride levels by The exact mechanisms by which it improves claudication distance are still unknown and additional effects may explain them Cilostazol was approved by the FDA in for use in intermittent claudication.

It also has antiplatelet effects, and potentially beneficial effects on plasma lipoprotein levels. As the multimodal disease process is more widely understood, newer drugs become available to treat and possibly prevent the formation of atheromas in patients at risk and will eventually decrease amputation rates worldwide. enferemdad


Endovascular therapy was slightly superior to surgery in the long term. Do current outcomes justify more liberal use of revascularization for vasculogenic claudication?

Current management of peripheral vascular disease and intermittent claudication has changed dramatically in the recent years with the advent of newer and fnfermedad therapeutic options. Claudication pain is caused mainly due to the excessive production of lactate from anaerobic glicolysis in patients with decreased supply of oxygen in PAD.

It has been validated in multiple clinical and epidemiological studies, proving its reliability in classifying the severity of PAD and helping physicians and vascular surgeons to make decisions on adequate management options. Am J Cardiol ; Other diagnostic methods such as arteriography, magnetic resonance perifrica and CT angiography are usually reserved to make decisions on interventional or surgical procedures, and not for making diagnosis of the disease, as these modalities are prone to complications related to puncture, contrast and irradiation The relationship be- tween calf blood flow and ankle blood pressure in patients with intermittent claudication.

Since then, several studies have been published of the effect of lipid lowering agents, and specifically statins, on PAD. Once a correct diagnosis is made, staging is useful to establish a baseline for treatment comparison in the future and to document any improvement in the scale Table 2.


In patients with intermittent claudication and no rest pain, treatment can be initiated with no further imaging studies. Fatal myocardial infarction following lower extremity revascularization: J Intern Med ; 3: The indication to intervene a oclusivaa surgically has enfemedad inversely to the former indications for medical therapy.

Services on Demand Article. The method for calculating the index is the ratio of the highest ankle systolic pressure divided by the highest brachial systolic pressure in each side Calf muscle adaptation in intermittent claudication.

Enfermedad arterial periférica (PAD)

Muscles have to adapt to the chronic lack of blood, and hence oxygen supply, to improve the use of glycogen stores without producing lactate The cuff is inflated above the highest systolic pressure, then measured and deflated at a rate of 3mmHg per second. This has been consistently demonstrated in additional trials using walking distance and quality of life as measures of the effect of statins on PAD Currently, this form of treatment is surpassing traditional surgery for the management of oclusuva claudication.

A summary of the management algorithm is depicted in figure 1. Nevertheless, patients with platelet aggregation inhibitor treatment have an increased risk of bleeding and temporary suspension might be required previous to surgery or other endovascular procedures.

PAD awareness, risk, and treatment: Symptoms only occur when the demand for oxygen is higher than the blood supply in the presence of stenotic lesions of peripheral arteries. Am J Med ; 5: Eur J Vasc Surg enfermedaad Clopidrogel was equally safe to aspirin in regards to thrombocytopenia.

How periferkca cite this article.

There are two main classification systems: No other clinical sign was useful in lowering the risk for a patient having PAD. Thus, modern medical management has proven to be superior than elective surgery and bypass reconstruction for the improvement in ocllusiva distance in patients with intermittent claudication.
