Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a narrowing of the peripheral arteries to the legs, stomach, arms, and head - most commonly in the arteries of the legs. PAD is similar to coronary artery disease (CAD).  Arterial insufficiency is also closely related to PAD.

Both PAD and CAD are caused by atherosclerosis that narrows and blocks arteries in various critical regions of the body.

QUICK FACTS ABOUT PAD

The most common symptoms of PAD involving the lower extremities are cramping, pain or tiredness in the leg or hip muscles while walking or climbing stairs. Typically, this pain goes away with rest and returns when you walk again.

 

  • Many people mistake the symptoms of PAD for something else.

  • PAD often goes undiagnosed by healthcare professionals.

  • People with peripheral arterial disease have a much higher risk of heart attack or stroke.

  • Left untreated, PAD can lead to gangrene and amputation.
