Clinical Information For the Treatment Of Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
What Is Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)?
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) - Basics
Peripheral Artery Disease occurs when there is a reduced flow of oxygen-rich blood to the arteries that supply blood to the limbs. This is generally caused by atherosclerosis, a build up of plaque in the arteries. Over time, the plaque hardens, causing the arteries to narrow and limiting blood flow to the limbs. PAD commonly affects the legs, but can also affect the arteries that carry blood to the kidneys, stomach, arms and head. Symptoms of PAD include pain, numbness, cramping or heaviness in the legs during physical activity; erectile dysfunction; lower temperature in one leg over the other; slow or poor healing of wounds in the affected limb; paleness; or reduced nail growth.
