Dr. Macris introduces the new PVA Channel and talks Peripheral Artery Disease
What is peripheral artery disease (PAD)?
Peripheral artery disease refers to blockages of the arteries in the legs. Plaque buildup in these arteries blocks blood flow and causes leg pain and circulatory problems throughout the lower extremities. For those with diabetes and PAD, leg pain, circulatory problems, and wounds in the feet are troublesome factors because they increase the risk for limb loss or amputation.
