Abstract

Physical exercise is recommended for patients with intermittent claudication (IC). However, its effects on cardiovascular function and health were not studied yet. The objective of this study will be to analyze acute and chronic effects of walking in patients with IC. Thirty patients with IC will be recruited from the Vascular Surgery Ambulatory of Hospital das Clínicas-FMUSP. Inclusion criteria is: age equal or greater than 50 years, level II of peripheral obstructive disease, capacity to walk for at least 2 min at 3.2 Km/h, and systolic and diastolic blood pressure (BP) levels lower than 160 and 105 mmHg, respectively. All subjects will underwent a maximal cardiopulmonary exercise test, and they will be randomly divided in two groups: walking training (WT) and control (CO). Training will consist of 15 sets of walking on a treadmill for 2 min at an intensity corresponding to the heart rate of claudication threshold, followed by 2 min of passive rest. At the beginning of the study and 12 weeks after training or control intervention, clinic and ambulatory blood pressures, cardiac output, heart rate, heart rate variability, muscle blood flow, vascular reactivity, resting and post-exercise ankle-brachial index, claudication distance, total walking distance, and peak VO2 will be measured. To evaluate the acute effects of walking, all of these variables will be also measured in the WT group before and after the fourth session of training, and this response will be compared to the one observed in a control session, in which variables were be measured before and after 60 min of seated rest. Data will be analyzed by 2-way ANOVA for repeated measures. Post-hoc comparisons will be performed with Newman-Keuls' test, and a P level P<0.05 will be accepted as significant. (AU)
