Abstract: Investigates the comparative effectiveness of supervised exercise (SE) vs unsupervised exercise (UE) as treatment for intermittent claudication (IC). Finds that in 27 studies (including 24 RCTs) SE was associated with a moderate improvement in maximal walking distance at 6 months and 12 months. SE also improved claudication distance to a moderate extent compared with UE at 6 months and 12 months. There was no difference in the Short Form-36 quality of life at 6 months or walking impairment questionnaire distance or speed. Concludes that further studies are needed to investigate the relationship between functional gain and disease-specific quality of life.
