Positiv effekt af intermitterende over- og undertryk (Vacusac) ved claudicatio intermittens

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

Twenty-two patients with intermittent claudication were included in a double-blinded, randomized trial comparing the effects of 25 treatments with intermittent suction and pressure (Vacusac treatment) to 25 placebo applications given over a period of two months. Twelve patients participated in an open trial investigating the effects of the same treatment on adenosine diphosphate (ADP)-induced platelet aggregation and fibrinolysis. Active treatment resulted in significant improvements in pain-free and maximal walking distances, whereas no changes could be found during placebo application. Active treatment caused significant increments in ADP-induced platelet aggregation, while the effects on fibrinolysis were uncertain. It is concluded that intermittent suction and pressure treatment offers a new approach for conservative treatment of intermittent claudication.
