Predicting Claudication Pain Using Equations

Purpose:

To predict onset of claudication in a patient with peripheral vascular disease using measures taken at rest and the equations of Gardner et al.

Specialty:

Cardiovascular Diseases

Objective:

criteria for diagnosis, severity, prognosis, stage

ICD-10:

I73.9

Description:

Gardner et al developed equations that could roughly estimate the walking distance for claudication pain onset and for distance to maximal pain. These equations use data collected while the patient is at rest and can be used when exercise testing is not immediately available. It can also be used to monitor a patient over time.
