FIRE-PAD: Functional Improvement Through Revascularization of the Extremities for Peripheral Arterial Disease
The specific aims of the project are as follows:
To determine whether catheter-based revascularization procedures improve functional capacity and quality of life among patients with intermittent claudication.
To investigate whether improvements in walking ability result in a less sedentary lifestyle and improvement of the cardiovascular risk profile.
Peripheral Vascular Disease
Behavioral: diet control, smoking cessation, exercize
