ANGIO PRESS® FOR TREATMENT OF PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE OF THE LEGS
Phlebologie 2014; 43:5-11.
Efficacy and safety of a new pneumatic compression device for peripheral arterial disease with intermittent claudication – a prospective, randomized, multi-center clinical trial.
Breu FX, Zelikovski A, Loberman Z, Rauh G.
A multicenter randomized, controlled clinical trial of 67 patients showed Angio Press® improved pain free walking distance significantly over supervised walking exercise, and reduced walking pain. While previous studies showed benefit over unsupervised walking, which has not been shown to be effective, this is the first study of its kind demonstrating the benefit of pneumatic compression over clinically supervised walking (the “gold standard” nonmedical treatment for PAD), indicating the value of Angio Press® for patients who cannot maintain a walking program, or to improve further the progress of patients in supervised exercise.
PNEUMATIC COMPRESSION FOR CRITICAL LIMB ISCHEMIA
Ugeskr Laeger. 2016 Mar 14;178(11).
The use of intermittent pneumatic compression for critical limb ischaemia without vascular surgery reconstruction.
Feuerhake IL, Henneberg EW, Høgh A.
A hospital based study examined 11patients (12 limbs) with critical limb ischemia with nonhealing wounds who were not candidates for revascularization and were awaiting amputation. Complete wound healing and prevention of amputation was achieved in nine out of 12 limbs, with partial wound healing in an additional limb. Eight of the nine patients had relief of rest pain.
