Abstract: Intermittent claudication (IC) is caused by obstructive arterial lesions and is characterized by effort-induced pain in the lower extremity, limiting walking distance, and reduced health-related quality of life (HRQoL). The prevalence of IC is increasing due to the ageing of the population, and the consequences of the economic effects are a global problem. The walking impairment can be reduced by exercise. Despite the paucity of evidence regarding long-term benefit and cost-effectiveness, ... more
