Effect of supervised exercise on physical function and balance in patients with intermittent claudication (2014)
Journal Article
Mockford, K. A., Gohil, R. A., Mazari, F., Khan, J. A., Vanicek, N., Coughlin, P. A., & Chetter, I. C. (2014). Effect of supervised exercise on physical function and balance in patients with intermittent claudication. British journal of surgery : BJS, 101(4), 356-362. https://doi.org/10.1002/bjs.9402

Background The aim of the study was to identify whether a standard supervised exercise programme (SEP) for patients with intermittent claudication improved specific measures of functional performance including balance. Methods A prospective observati... Read More about Effect of supervised exercise on physical function and balance in patients with intermittent claudication.

Fear of falling in claudicants and its relationship to physical ability, balance, and quality of Life (2014)
Journal Article
Lane, R. A., Mazari, F., Mockford, K. A., Vanicek, N., Chetter, I. C., & Coughlin, P. A. (2014). Fear of falling in claudicants and its relationship to physical ability, balance, and quality of Life. Vascular and endovascular surgery, 48(4), 297-304 . https://doi.org/10.1177/1538574413519711

Objectives: Intermittent claudication is associated with poor physical function, quality of life (QoL), and balance impairment. Fear of falling (FoF) is a recognized contributing factor to poor physical ability. Any link between claudication and FoF...

Journal of vascular surgery, 58(6), 1533-1539. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.jvs.2013.05.106

Objective The aim of this study was to identify whether revascularization by percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) for patients with intermittent claudication improved measures of functional performance including balance. Methods A prospective... Read More about Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty results in improved physical function but not balance in patients with intermittent claudication.

Computerized dynamic posturography in the objective assessment of balance in patients with intermittent claudication (2010)
Journal Article
Mockford, K. A., Mazari, F. A. K., Jordan, A. R., Vanicek, N., Chetter, I. C., & Coughlin, P. A. (2011). Computerized dynamic posturography in the objective assessment of balance in patients with intermittent claudication. Annals of vascular surgery, 25(2), 182-190. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.avsg.2010.07.021

One-third of all elderly patients fall each year and impaired balance has been recognized as a specific risk factor. Intermittent claudication is common among the elderly population, affecting approximately 5% of the population over the age of 50. Th...
