Clinical Trial Summary

The specific study aim is to determine whether a 12-week digitally delivered behavior change intervention for patients with peripheral artery disease increases walking ability, reduces smoking, improves quality of life and improves medication adherence. The primary and secondary endpoints will primarily be captured at a 12 weeks follow-up visit, but a follow-up visit after 12 months is also planned; to assess longer term effect on outcomes and healthcare cost.


Clinical Trial Description

Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a highly prevalent atherosclerotic syndrome with an estimated global population burden of ~200 million people. PAD patients are at heightened risk for adverse cardiovascular- and limb events and impaired quality of life. Cigarette smoking is the most important modifiable risk factor. Patients with PAD who smoke have higher disease progression rates, greater risk of complications, poor post-procedural outcomes, compromised functional status, and increased hospitalizations. A significant goal of PAD treatment includes risk factor modification and prevention of cardiovascular events. Guideline-directed therapy includes cardioprotective pharmacotherapies, and lifestyle modification. Nevertheless, adherence to pharmacologic and lifestyle recommendations in PAD is uncertain. Effective non-pharmacologic therapies for PAD also exist, including smoking cessation, exercise support, and diet counseling. However, limited data is available on mobile applications offering digitally delivered lifestyle change support, including a structured exercise program and smoking cessation support. This study aims to digitally provide lifestyle change support, including a structured and PAD-focused lifestyle program and smoking cessation support via a mobile platform (Sidekick Health) with the primary aim to increase patients' walking ability and secondary aims to reduce smoking and improve medication adherence. Hypotheses 1. At the end of the 12 weeks, the interventional arm will reach a clinically meaningful change in walking ability, as compared to controls, measured by a change in the 6-MWT at twelve-week, and 12 months; the minimal clinically important difference (MCID) is defined as +12m. 2. At the end of the 12 weeks, ≥15% interventional treatment arm participants will give up smoking or have significantly reduced their daily smoking compared to less than <10% in the control arm. 3. At the end of the 12 weeks, ≥50% of interventional treatment arm participants will improve their medication adherence from pre- until post-intervention as compared to <30% in the control arm. 4. Healthcare cost will be reduced at 12 month follow-up in the intervention arm. ;
