In brief: Yes

Probably the best-studied use of edta chelation therapy has been for intermittent claudication (peripheral vascular disease).
Contact the american college for advancement in medicine (www.Acam.Org) for clinical studies and names of physicians in your area who provide this treatment. Chelation therapy improves blood flow throughout the body, and benefits a wide range of ischemic conditions.

In brief: No

Iv chelation therapy is "snake oil" and would serve no purpose for intermittent claudication which is caused by peripheral vascular disease.
