PAOD TREATMENT

INCREASING THE QUALITY OF LIFE

PAOD (peripheral arterial occlusive disease) causes a reduction in arterial perfusion at the extremities. As a chronic vascular disease, it has a huge impact on health, with increasing exercise-dependent pain and walking distance reduction (intermittent claudication) up to and including critical ischaemia. This is where DUCEST neurostimulation therapy may achieve surprising success: modulations in the brain stem caused by intermittent continuous stimulation of the vagus nerve in the triangular fossa result in improved perfusion
of the extremities - without active substances and minimal invasive. The aim of treatment is to slow the progress of the disease, prevent amputations and facilitate greater freedom of movement and thus a better quality of life.

HOW TO GET BETTER

A clinical trial by senior consultant Dr Thomas Payrits on vagus stimulation in PAOD patients supports the eff ectiveness of DUCEST neurostimulation therapy: in addition to good data quality and a high level of patient compliance, study results show a signifi cant rise in the transcutaneous partial pressure of oxygen between the initial examination and the fi nal one. The other parameters for effi cacy and quality of life in the form of ABI SF-36 health surveys and the walking distance test also have similar results and thus confi rm therapeutic success as an effective measure for improving the symptoms of PAOD.
