The effect of resistance training on functional capacity in middle-aged to elderly individuals with peripheral artery disease: a meta-analysis (2022)
Journal Article
Pearson, S., Sindall, P., Caldow, E., & Taberner, P. (2022). The effect of resistance training on functional capacity in middle-aged to elderly individuals with peripheral artery disease: a meta-analysis. International angiology : a journal of the International Union of Angiology, https://doi.org/10.23736/S0392-9590.22.04922-7

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is an ischemic disease of the lower limbs, caused by atherosclerotic plaques, leading to impairments in functional capacity and reduced quality of life. This meta-analysis aimed to assess the effect of 12-week and 24-w...

Integrating patients with intermittent claudication into an established cardiac rehabilitation programme: a feasibility study with embedded pilot (2022)
Thesis
Caldow, E. Integrating patients with intermittent claudication into an established cardiac rehabilitation programme: a feasibility study with embedded pilot. (Thesis). University of Salford

Introduction: In the UK, it is recommended that people diagnosed with intermittent claudication (IC) receive exercise therapy as first-line treatment of their condition. The optimal delivery of this treatment is a hospital-based, supervised exercise...

Peripheral artery disease affects over 236 million people globally and the classic symptom is intermittent claudication (IC) which is associated with reduction in physical activity. The evidence that supervised exercise programmes (SEPs) improve pain...

A systematic review of exercise intervention reporting quality and dose in studies of intermittent claudication (2022)
Journal Article
Ibeggazene, S., Pymer, S., Birkett, S. T., Caldow, E., & Harwood, A. E. (2022). A systematic review of exercise intervention reporting quality and dose in studies of intermittent claudication. Vascular, 31(3), 477-488. https://doi.org/10.1177/17085381211070700

Background: Exercise therapy is an important treatment option for people with intermittent claudication (IC). Appropriate reporting of exercise interventions in populations with IC within randomised controlled trials (RCTs) is important to ensure tha...

A systematic review of exercise prescription in patients with intermittent claudication: does pain matter? (2021)
Journal Article
Seed, S., Harwood, A., Sinclair, J., Pymer, S., Caldow, E., Ingle, L., …Birkett, S. (2021). A systematic review of exercise prescription in patients with intermittent claudication: does pain matter?. Annals of Vascular Surgery, 77, 315-323. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.avsg.2021.06.025

Background: Current guidelines for intermittent claudication advocate exercise at moderate to maximal claudication pain. However, adherence rates to supervised exercise programmes (SEP) remain poor and claudication pain is a contributing factor. Limi...
