Abstract: Analyzes the effects of exercise on peripheral arterial disease (PAD), using 41 studies that compared between exercise training and usual care. Finds that exercise improves peak VO2, 6-minute walk initial claudication, total walking distance, graded treadmill initial claudication, absolute claudication distance, but not ankle-brachial index or flow mediated dilatation. An important finding is that no-to-mild pain may be superior to moderate-to-maximum training pain.
