The article deals with the analysis of the results of randomized placebo-controlled studies of various therapeutic agents currently available in Russia, as well as the results of meta-analyses and Cochrane reviews of medicamentous treatment of patients with intermittent claudication. The results of these studies gave grounds to recommend the most efficient agents in the new edition of the "National Guidelines on management of patients with lower-limb arterial disease" (2013).

KEY WORDS: intermittent claudication, statins, antiaggregants, pentoxyphyllin, prostanoids.
