We determined the diagnostic accuracy of the Edinburgh Claudication Questionnaire (ECQ) in 1st generation Black African-Caribbean UK. To determine whether the Edinburgh Claudication Questionnaire (ECQ) can be used as a screening tool for detecting peripheral arterial disease in patients with . The WHO/Rose Questionnaire on intermittent claudication was developed in for use in epidemiological surveys, and has been widely used. Several.

ABI measure and calculation – To calculate ABI, systolic pressures of brachial arteries, dorsalis pedis and posterior tibial arteries were measured bilaterally after 5 minutes at rest in supine position using a handheld vascular Doppler and aneroid pressure equipment.

At process ending, the questionnaire was reduced to six questions. The diagnosis of ischaemic heart pain and intermittent claudication in field surveys. Topics Discussed in This Paper.

Edinburgh Claudication Questionnaire (ECQ)

Questionnnaire of peripheral arterial disease PAD. Methods Translation of questionnaire – The translation and cultural adaptation of the original version into Brazilian Portuguese were performed based on methodology previously published 6following authorization by Professor Gerry Fowkes, from the University of Edinburgh.


In this study, reasons for the poor sensitivity and good specificity were determined following its application to claudicants and to 61 subjects with other causes of leg pain. Vascular treadmill test – Vascular treadmill test was performed only for ABI threshold values 0.

As the Edinburgh Questionnaire was developed, performance of the nine questions from claudicatoin Rose Questionnaire were analyzed to verify whether any changes were needed. How to cite this article. Does peripheral arterial occlusive questionmaire influence muscle strength and exercise capacity in COPD patients?

Females were predominant In stage 2, participants had anthropometric measures and ankle-brachial index ABI at rest measured by vascular Doppler. Criteria all positive required for PVD diagnosis Leg Pain with walking Pain does not have onset while standing or sitting Pain occurs questionnakre walking fast or uphill Pain resolves within 10 minutes of standing still.

ECQ – Edinburgh Claudication Questionnaire

Introduction Peripheral Arterial Disease PAD is a result of artery lumen narrowing and stiffening in the lower limbs as part of claudicationn process of systemic atherosclerotic disease. From This Paper Topics from this paper. Through this methodology, an asymptomatic PAD case would be classified as “false positive”, whereas the diagnosis based on clinical history only would be more likely to be classified as “truly negative”.

However, no published data were found on questionnaire claudifation or on performance in Brazilian Portuguese 5. Started inthis collection now contains interlinked topic pages divided into a tree of 31 specialty books and chapters. Skip to search form Skip to main content.


Intermittent claudication is a classical symptom in the PAD condition. No significant differences could be observed in the performance of the Brazilian Portuguese version among elderly and non-elderly, which allows it to be used for that high risk population for PAD as well.

The versions were then compared and discussed in a meeting where a consensual choice was made for Version 1.

ABI was calculated for each lower limb using arm highest systolic pressure as denominator, and ankle highest pressure as numerator 7. Individuals under research were invited through mass communication media television, radio, newspapers to participate in the I Campaign to Fight Peripheral Arterial Disease PAD.

The Brazilian Portuguese version of the Edinburgh claudication questionnaire maintained good sensitivity and specificity and can be recommended for screening of PAD in clinical practice and epidemiological research in Brazil.

The use of claudication questionnaires, however, may help screening PAD both for epidemiologic research purposes and in clinical practice.

The three new versions were then compared to generate a consensual version in English Version 2.
