The initial two slides introduce peripheral arterial disease (PAD) as one of several manifestations of atherothrombosis. The major part of the presentation provides an overview of epidemiological data on PAD, describing: risk factors and prevalence of PAD; atherothrombosis (coexistence of coronary and cerebrovascular disease); the natural history of PAD; evidence for PAD as a risk factor for ischaemic stroke (IS), myocardial infarction (MI) and all-cause mortality; and the inverse relationship between ankle:arm blood pressure index (ABPI) and risk of IS, MI and mortality. The symptomatology, diagnosis and management of PAD is outlined, including the rationale for the use of antiplatelet agents in PAD patients. The final section describes the overall benefit of clopidogrel in preventing major vascular ischaemic events (IS, MI, vascular death) in atherothrombotic patients, including those with diagnosed PAD.
4Epidemiologia da DAOP– Efeito da idade e sexo Epidemiologia da DAOP varia de acordo com:População estudadaMétodo de diagnósticoA incidência e a prevalência da claudicação intermitente aumentam com a idadePrevalência nos homens c/ 45–50 anos é de 1%Prevalência de 3.0 a 3.5 % nos > 50 anos% idêntica nas mulheres, aumentando com a idadeMais comum nos homens do que nas mulheres2 X mais homens do que mulheres > 50 anos têm claudicação intermitente (3.5% e 2%, respectivamente)A predominância do sexo masculino desaparece após os 70 anosEpidemiology of PAD – effect of age and genderThere are fewer epidemiological data on PAD than there are on myocardial infarction and stroke. Existing data show variations depending on the populations being studied and the diagnostic methods employed. However, general features of the epidemiology of PAD can be summarized as follows:(i) the increase and prevalence of PAD increase with age; (ii) PAD is more common in men than it is in women; (iii) the predominance of PAD in males diminishes in those aged > 70 years.11Weitz JI, Byrne J, Clagett GP et al.

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is one of several manifestations of atherothrombosis. This process occurs when a platelet-rich clot (thrombus) forms at the site of an unstable or disrupted atherosclerotic plaque. In the brain, atherothrombosis may result in transient ischaemic attack or ischaemic stroke. In the coronary arteries it can lead to stable or unstable angina, and in the peripheral arteries atherothrombosis causes leg-muscle ischaemia (varying from asymptomatic to severe symptomatic disease). PAD can be asymptomatic (pre-existing atherosclerosis as a diffuse marker of the disease, placing patients at risk of an ischaemic event elsewhere in the vasculature) or symptomatic (intermittent claudication, critical leg ischaemia).Doença arterial obstrutiva periférica (DAOP): Claudicação intermitente ; dor em repouso, úlcera e necrose (isquemia crítica)

These risk factors include those related to lifestyle, such as smoking, diet and physical inactivity.1 Common conditions such as diabetes1 and hypertension1 are also associated with increased risk of PAD. The role of infection in the development of atherosclerosis is currently the focus of much interest.2 Homocysteinaemia,3 hypercholesterolaemia1 and hypercoagulable states4 also increase the risk of vascular disease. Thus, factors that can be controlled, such as diet and smoking, and factors that cannot be altered, such as genetic traits, gender,1 and age,1 are all known to be associated with increased risk of PAD.1,2Although there are similarities in risk factors for atherosclerosis throughout the vasculature, the degree of risk associated with a given risk factor may differ for each arterial bed. For example, smoking and diabetes are widely held to be the strongest risk factors for PAD. PAD patients are at high risk of ischaemic events, as PAD is a risk marker for MI and stroke.1Murabito JM, D’Agostino RB, Silbershatz H et al. Intermittent claudication.

7DAOP - Prevalência6.3 milhões de indivíduos com DAOP sintomática são diagnosticados anualmente nos USA e na UE1Estudos epidemiológicos apontam para uma prevalência real de aprox. 20 milhões (= 9.5% da população com > 50 anos)Em 613 homens e mulheres ( idade média de 66 anos), a prevalência real foi subestimada 2 a 7 vezes2Índice t/b (índice de pressão tornozelo / braço ) correlaciona-se com a existência de doença demonstrada por angiografia3ITB < 0.9 é marcador de aterotrombose difusa4Prevalence of PAD – variation according to diagnostic criterionEstimates of PAD prevalence vary according to which definition of PAD is used. In the USA and the EU, 6.3 million people are currently diagnosed as having established, symptomatic PAD.1 However, the actual number of individuals with PAD in the USA and EU may be three times as high as the number of individuals actually diagnosed with the disease. In a study2 of a free-living population of 613 men and women, mean age 66 years, intermittent claudication – defined as either classic intermittent claudication or any exercise calf pain – underestimated the prevalence of ‘real’ PAD, as assessed by non-invasive testing (ankle:brachial pressure index [ABPI] and posterior tibial flow velocity). Thus, real PAD was about two to seven times more common than a history of intermittent claudication would suggest. Conversely, the presence of one or more abnormal peripheral pulses tended to overestimate the prevalence of real PAD by a factor of two. ABPI alone has been shown to correlate highly (r = –0.731) with angiographically determined disease in a series of PAD patients.2 A recent study validated the use of ABPI to screen for atherosclerosis.3 A low ABPI identified patients with increased risk. ABPI < 0.9 (abnormal pulse) is a marker of atherothrombosis.4 It is not systematically correlated with the presence of symptoms. ABPI measurements can be conducted at low cost, using simple techniques, and are non-invasive.117 Western European countries.

The San Diego Artery Study,1 in which an ankle-brachial pressure ratio (ABPR) of < 0.8 was used as a marker for PAD, assessed how often PAD occurred in association with other manifestations of atherosclerosis. Among men with PAD, 29.4% had cardiovascular disease (CVD; either CHD, defined as previous MI or bypass surgery, or cerebrovascular disease, indicated by a previous stroke or stroke-related surgery). Among women with PAD, 21.2% had CVD. In comparison, 11.5% of men and 9.3% of women without PAD had a history of CVD. Thus, in this study, other CVD occurred two to three times more frequently among persons with PAD.1Criqui MH, Denenberg JO, Langer RD et al.

For every 100 patients who present with intermittent claudication, there are approximately 100 more with symptoms who do not present to their physician, and another 100 with asymptomatic disease. Of the 100 patients presenting, only around 25% will have deterioration of their condition locally. In contrast, after 5 years, only approximately 50% will be alive without having had a cardiovascular event. Therefore, pharmacological therapy in PAD patients should aim to improve the symptoms and local prognosis, provide an adjuvant to interventional measures, and, most importantly, modify cardiovascular mortality and morbidity.1Dormandy JA.

Of 565 subjects examined (average age 66 years), 67 patients (11.9%) were identified as having large-vessel PAD by non-invasive testing. The patients were then followed prospectively for 10 years.Shown are Kaplan-Meier survival curves (based on mortality from all causes) for four groups of patients: normal, asymptomatic, symptomatic and severely symptomatic. The survival curves demonstrate a poor prognosis for patients with PAD; even asymptomatic patients had sharply reduced survival, compared with normal subjects. The subgroup with severe symptomatic PAD had the worst prognosis: analysis of this group revealed a 15-fold increase in rates of mortality due to cardiovascular disease and CHD. After 10 years, about half of asymptomatic patients had survived, whereas only 25% of severely symptomatic patients had survived.11Criqui MH, Langer RD, Froner A et al.

These survival rates are much lower than those for age-adjusted controls, for whom the rate is 90% at 5 years. Additional evidence suggests that atherosclerosis in other locations further increases a patient's mortality risk.1Five-year mortality rates in PAD patients are higher than rates obtained in another study in patients with breast cancer or those with Hodgkin’s disease.2 The mortality rate of patients with PAD demonstrate that they should receive careful cardiovascular evaluation, and undergo counselling and treatment to manage risk factors such as smoking, hyperlipidaemia, hypertension, sedentary lifestyle, obesity and diabetes.1Kampozinski RF, Bernhard VM.

Possible cases of intermittent claudication demonstrated increased mortality due to both cardiovascular and non-cardiovascular disease. Furthermore, possible and probable cases still showed increased cardiovascular and all-cause mortality even after adjustment for coronary risk factors (not shown), suggesting that the elevated mortality risk seen with PAD is independent of coexisting cardiovascular disease and risk factors.1Smith GD, Shipley MJ, Rose G.

J Cardiovasc Surg 1989;30:50–57.Low ABPI is a strong predictor of cardiovascular mortalityPAD, as measured by ABPI (ankle:brachial pressure index), is a strong predictor of mortality.In a Belgian study of 2023 asymptomatic working men aged 40–55 years who were free of coronary artery disease, the predictive power of an ABPI of < 0.9 was evaluated.1 The age-adjusted relative risks for reduced versus normal ABPI were 4.16 (p = 0.011) and 4.97 (p = 0.006) for 10-year cardiovascular and coronary mortality, respectively. A reduced ABPI was a significant independent predictor of cardiovascular and coronary mortality, with ORs of 3.29 (p = 0.046) and 3.63 (p = 0.046), respectively. These data confirm that a reduced ABPI is a strong risk factor for cardiac mortality, even in asymptomatic, middle-aged males.In a US, 10-year, global mortality study involving 744 patients, there was a powerful inverse relationship between the PAD severity as assessed by ABPI and mortality.2 Causes of death were grouped into four categories: ischaemic heart disease, cardiovascular diseases other than ischaemic heart disease; cancer; and other causes. Analysis of 10-year survival for the four categories of mortality showed a definite trend towards increased risk of death from cardiovascular diseases, particularly ischaemic heart disease, with decreasing ABPI.2Also, 1.5–5% of patients with intermittent claudication develop critical leg ischaemia, necessitating amputation.31Kornitzer M, Dramaix M, Sobolski J et al.

A small percentage of patients with intermittent claudication (1.5–5%)1 develop critical leg ischaemia, which causes pain at rest and may result in gangrene and amputation of the affected limb. According to the Fontaine classification, the common interpretation of the various stages involving severe ischaemia is as follows: stage 1, asymptomatic with no functional signs; stage 2, intermittent claudication; stage 3, rest pain caused by arterial disease; and stage 4, ulceration and/or gangrene caused by arterial disease.21Dormandy JA, Mahir M, Ascady G et al.

Physical examination can often provide information on the site of atherosclerotic involvement by obvious pulse deficits or by the presence of a bruit at sites of arterial stenosis. Measurement of the ankle:arm blood pressure index (ABPI) has been validated as a way of screening individuals with some of the risk factors for atherosclerotic diseases such as PAD.1 The rationale behind this measurement is that the drop in blood pressure between thigh and toe is significantly larger than that observed in healthy subjects. The ABPI measurement is a powerful predictor of subsequent morbidity and mortality, and has the advantage of being simple, non-invasive and suitable for inclusion as part of a routine screen for cardiovascular risk. Exercise testing on a treadmill can provide additional objective measurements on the severity and progression of PAD.1Shinozaki T, Hasegawa T, Yano E.

In patients with PAD, morbidity and mortality can be significantly decreased by stopping smoking, taking regular exercise (three times a day), and reducing dietary fat intake. Importantly, pharmacological treatment should include secondary prevention of ischaemic events of atherothrombotic origin by an antiplatelet agent. Pharmacological treatment to reduce cholesterol, and to control diabetes and hypertension, where present, is also important. These risk-factor modification strategies also apply to reduction of ischaemic risk in patients with symptomatic atherosclerosis affecting the coronary and cerebral arterial beds.Cilostazol, a phosphodiesterase inhibitor, has recently been approved by the FDA for the reduction of symptoms, as measured by pain-free and maximal walking distance, for patients with intermittent claudication.1,2 Pentoxifylline is an earlier therapy for intermittent claudication; however, a critical review of placebo-controlled trials has concluded that the improvement in walking distance obtained with pentoxifylline is often unpredictable and may not be clinically significant.3 It is important to note that although symptomatic benefit may be obtained from vasodilator therapy, there is still a need to prescribe an antiplatelet agent that effectively reduces the risk of vascular ischaemic events such as ischaemic stroke, MI and vascular death.PAD also has considerable consequences upon patients’ community-based quality of life, and this can be significantly improved by exercise programmes. Additionally, a recent study highlighted the repercussions of PAD upon professional activities, with nearly half of patients stating that PAD had caused either a change in their activities, or partial suspension or cessation of work.4 However, following treatment with naftidrofuryl, less than 10% of patients were on sick leave or required external assistance as a result of the disease (6-month follow-up), leading to improved quality of life (rather than positive outcomes).1Dawson DL, Cutler BS, Meissner MH et al.

29Terapêutica da DAOP – Intervenção EndovascularRevascularização (angioplastia)Colocação de StentCirúrgicaEndarteriectomiaBypassAmputaçãoManagement of PAD – interventionIntervention, either by direct reconstruction of diseased leg arteries by angioplasty (with or without subsequent stent placement), endarterectomy or by replacement by peripheral bypass grafting, can relieve symptoms caused by inadequate blood flow. The decision to operate should be based on symptom severity, degree of disability and perceived surgical risk. When performed by an experienced surgeon, vascular surgical procedures are associated with a lower mortality rate than amputation.1 Obviously, interventions affecting the peripheral arteries do not reduce ischaemic risk in the cerebral or coronary arteries thus, chronic antiplatelet therapy and risk factor modification are still needed.1Kampozinski RF, Bernhard VM.

ADP SimAspirina Inibe a síntese de TxA NãoE porquê?Management of PAD – antiplatelet agents are a key component of treatmentThe use of antiplatelet agents in secondary prevention stems from the central role of platelet aggregation in atherothrombosis.Ticlopidine is a platelet ADP receptor antagonist, inhibiting the ADP-dependent pathway of platelet activation. Data on antiplatelet agents in PAD patients reviewed in the APTC meta-analysis1 is based largely on ticlopidine, approved in several countries for secondary prevention in PAD patients.Clopidogrel, a newer ADP receptor antagonist, is the first antiplatelet agent to be approved for the prevention of all major vascular ischaemic events (iscahemic stroke [IS], MI, vascular death) in all patients with atherothrombosis manifested by recent IS, recent MI or established PAD.2Aspirin inhibits the thromboxane A2 pathway of platelet activation, but there are few clinical trial data on aspirin in PAD patients, therefore the drug has not been approved for secondary prevention in this setting.1Antiplatelet Trialists’ Collaboration.

By design, the CAPRIE1 trial enrolled approximately equal numbers of patients (mean age 62.5 years) to three groups defined by the following qualifying conditions: recent IS, recent MI or established PAD. As atherothrombosis is a generalized condition that can develop throughout the vasculature, it is not surprising that 26.3% of the total study cohort were found to have atherothrombosis affecting one or two other vascular beds.1CAPRIE Steering Committee.

PAD is a marker of atherosclerosis affecting the coronary and cerebrovascular arterial beds, and is a predictor of ischaemic stroke (IS), MI and overall mortality.In CAPRIE, patients who qualified on the basis of PAD were at high risk of further ischaemic events in additional vascular territories. The 3-year event rates for cerebrovascular outcomes (fatal or non-fatal IS) were 3.6% in the clopidogrel group versus 5.2% in the aspirin group. Those for coronary outcomes (fatal or non-fatal MI) were 4.2% and 5.1%, respectively.11Dormandy JA. Ankle:arm blood pressure index as a predictor of atherothrombotic events: evidence from CAPRIE.

Patients were followed for a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 3 years, regardless of discontinuation of study drug. The primary endpoint was a composite outcome cluster of IS, MI or vascular death.1CAPRIE Steering Committee.

This represents an increase of 26% in the number of events prevented per 1000 patients per year. When these results are extrapolated to the estimated 20 million patients with atherothrombosis in the USA and Western Europe, a staggering new major vascular events could be prevented each year by using clopidogrel instead of aspirin.1CAPRIE Steering Committee.

The rate of neutropenia during clopidogrel therapy was very low, being comparable to that of aspirin. Clopidogrel’s high tolerability and low toxicity mean that neither dosing adjustments nor specific patient monitoring are necessary with clopidogrel therapy.1CAPRIE Steering Committee.

36Conclusão – 1A DAOP é um marcador de doença aterosclerótica coronária e cerebrovascularA DAOP está subestimada e subdiagnosticadaA determinação do ITB é simples, não-invasiva e é preditivo do risco isquémico nos doentes com DAOP, devendo ser complementada com Eco-Doppler das artérias dos membrosOs factores de risco carecem de correcção : Abstenção tabágica, exercício regularAntiagregantes e Estatinas são componentes essenciais do tratamentoSummary – 1PAD is a manifestation of atherothrombosis – a global disease requiring global treatment. Epidemiological studies have shown that PAD is a marker of atherosclerosis in the coronary and cerebral arteries, and that PAD is a risk factor for ischaemic stroke, myocardial infarction and all-cause mortality. Bearing in mind the morbidity and mortality associated with PAD, it is clear that PAD is a condition that requires careful screening and diagnosis, management of risk factors (in particular smoking cessation and regular exercise training) and adequate treatment. Importantly, treatment goals should include secondary prevention of atherothrombotic events through the use of a proven antiplatelet agent.There is good evidence that the ankle:arm blood pressure index (ABPI) is a powerful predictor of ischaemic risk in patients with PAD, even with asymptomatic disease. The ABPI measurement has the advantage of being non-invasive, technically simple and easy to perform, and should be considered for inclusion in routine screening for cardiovascular risk.
