PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE

WHAT IS PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE - PAD?

The arteries are the blood vessels that carry the blood from the heart to all the areas of the body. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a condition in which fatty deposits (called plaque) build up along the walls of the arteries that carry blood to the arms and legs. This is also known as arteriosclerosis or hardening of the arteries. The arteries slowly narrow and may even become blocked, affecting blood circulation, especially in the legs and feet.
