Abstract

In the general context of increasing prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors in European population, we face with a significant rise of the incidence of atherothrombotic diseases. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) represented for a long time a peripheral interest for cardiologist. The epidemiological studies in the latest years determine a reconsideration of the medical attitude in respect of PAD, motivated by an increase in its prevalence and, on the other hand, by the significant cardiovascular risk this disease carries with. Taking into account that fact and aiming at a better medical approach of these patients, we realized a review regarding therapeutic methods in patients with PAD and intermittent claudication based on the latest medical publications and in accord with the guide in force at the moment.
