However similar symptoms may be observed in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis, and the diagnosis bsecomes complicated in petients suffering from botc disorelers. The ethiopethogenesis of intermittent vascular clauclication is quite clear but controveries still exists on the efrology of neurogenre claudicatren.
