|[en] Infrainguinal arterial occlusive disease is very common at the age of 60 years or older. It remains often asymptomatic. In one third of cases, it results in claudication. Claudication is a benign symptom that rarely necessitates surgery or endovascular intervention. Physical training and control of risk factors are sufficient in most cases to improve the walking performance. Nowadays, the authors do no longer perform femoropopliteal bypass grafting as a first choice treatment for intermittent claudication. Conservative treatment has gained widespread acceptance for infrainguinal atherosclerosis with moderate ischemia. What is the fate of the claudicant? How effective is exercise therapy? Should we broaden the indications for percutaneous angioplasty? What is the place of femoropopliteal bypass graft for claudication? The authors investigate these different questions by means of an extensive review of recent literature. Based on this review and on international consensus documents, they justify their conservative approach to claudication secondary to occlusive disease of the superficial femoral artery.|
