PMID:  6242354     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Exercise tolerance testing has wide application in the detection and quantitation of lower-extremity claudication. Serial follow-up after operative or nonoperative therapy permits an accurate, objective assessment of the course of the disease in each limb. Unmasking of occult aortoiliac disease, identification of pseudoclaudication, and assessment of the relative contribution of other systemic disorders in exercise limitation are further advantages of this technique. Routine exercise tolerance testing has merit for the initial and subsequent evaluations when symptoms of leg pain are produced solely by exercise.
