Peripheral Artery Disease

The purpose of this lecture is to explore symptomatic Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) as an important musculoskeletal leg pain masquerader in the middle and older age patient.

We will explore presentations, mechanisms, examination, management and clinical reasoning. This lecture is highly practical and condition specific but it is hoped that it can integrated into a broader biopsychosocial approach.

The learning outcomes are:

  • To appreciate, compare and contrast symptomatic PAD, primarily with lumbar spine stenosis
  • To develop up-to-date knowledge of risk factors and prognostic factors
  • To develop a deeper understanding of pathophysiology and how related to clinical manifestations
  • To consolidate approaches to meaningful physical examination
  • To consider when timely onward referral is appropriate. 
  • To consider conservative management options including supervised exercise programmes.
