Peripheral Vascular Disease

Posted Aug 12 2009 12:00am
There has to be knowledge in order to bring awareness...


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Peripheral vascular disease (PVD), also known as peripheral artery disease (PAD) or peripheral artery occlusive disease (PAOD), includes all diseases caused by the obstruction of large arteries in the arms and legs. PVD can result from atherosclerosis, inflammatory processes leading to stenosis, an embolism or thrombus formation. It causes either acute or chronic ischemia (lack of blood supply), typically of the legs.
