Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD)

Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is due to atherosclerosis of arteries in the limbs. The level of arterial occlusion present is proportional to the symptoms. The pathogenesis and risk factors are the same as for coronary artery disease (CAD), and include: Hypertension Dyslipidaemia High LDL and low LDL levels Diabetes Obesity FH of arterial disease Smoking Age Male gender   Epidemiology

Angioplasty with paclitaxel coated balloon reduces restenosis in peripheral artery disease

Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty using a paclitaxel coated balloon notably improves arterial patency at one year when compared with the same procedure using a standard uncoated balloon in patients with femoropopliteal artery disease, a study in the New England Journal of Medicine has shown.1

Combined strategies to avoid foot ulcers in patients with diabetes | Cochrane

Foot ulcers (open sores) are common in people with diabetes mellitus (type 1 and type 2), especially those with problems in the nerves (peripheral neuropathy), the blood supply to their legs (peripheral vascular disease) or both. People with ulcers due to diabetes will sometimes need an amputation (surgical removal of part of the limb). Foot ulcers not only lead to physical disability and loss of quality of life, but also to economic burden (healthcare costs, industrial disability). The aim is therefore to prevent foot ulcers occurring, for example, by showing patients with diabetes how to look after their feet or by prompting doctors to check their patients' feet more often. The results of single prevention strategies alone have so far been disappointing, therefore in clinical practice, preventive interventions directed at patients, healthcare providers and/or the structure of health care are often combined. In this review of trials of complex, preventive interventions, we found insufficient evidence that these combined approaches can be effective in reducing foot problems.

Critical limb ischaemia in peripheral vascular disease: intravenous iloprost | key-points-from-the-evidence | Advice | NICE

A Cochrane review of low quality studies of prostanoids in people with critical limb ischaemia unsuitable for surgery found that compared with placebo, intravenous iloprost statistically significantly reduced major amputations, improved rest-pain relief, and improved ulcer healing. The benefit of intravenous iloprost on total amputations (major plus minor) was not statistically significant. In a randomised controlled trial (RCT) in people undergoing femorodistal bypass surgery for critical limb ischaemia, perioperative intravenous and intra-graft iloprost did not improve graft patency or clinical status, or reduce amputations at 1‑year follow-up compared with placebo. Adverse events were more common with intravenous iloprost than with placebo and included pain at the infusion site, headache, flushing, nausea and vomiting, and hypotension.
