What is Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)?

PAD occurs when arteries in the legs become narrowed or clogged with plaque, reducing blood flow to the legs. PAD can lead to leg pain when walking, disability, and even amputation. Blocked leg arteries can be a red flag that other arteries, including those to the heart and brain, may also be blocked increasing the risk of a heart attack or stroke.

The good news is that PAD can be treated by making lifestyle changes, taking medication and, if needed, having special procedures. With an early diagnosis and proper treatment, you can live well with PAD.
