Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The benefit of exercise in the management of intermittent claudication has been explored through extensive research in the preceding decades. Within the clinical setting, there is often little differentiation between home-based and supervised exercise regimens. We examined the history and qualification of supervised exercise as a distinct treatment modality from nonsupervised exercise in intermittent claudication. A Medline, Embase, Ovid, Cochrane Database, and Google Scholar search was performed on all studies published until December 31, 2007, investigating the use of supervised exercise in peripheral arterial disease. Supervised exercise is well grounded in evidence to support its superiority over nonsupervised exercise in the management of intermittent claudication, conveying marked improvement in symptomatology, function, and quality of life. Further research is required to determine the nature of the advantage that supervision affords.
