ABSTRACT
Focuses on the reliability of true half-relaxation time (TRT) and maximal contraction force (Tmax) of calf muscles in intermittent claudication. Prolongation of TRT of the Achilles tendon reflex of patients with major leg artery occlusions; Discussion on the sensitivity and specificity of TRT measurements; Offer by the combination of a standardized walking test on a treadmill and of pre- and postexercise measurements of TRT and/or TMAX offers a new possibility to investigate the performance of a patient with stenoses or occlusions of the main leg arteries.
