Arterial disease: Lower extremity implications
from Lower Extremity Review
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) encompasses a range of noncoronary arterial syndromes that are caused by alterations in the structure and function of the arteries that supply the brain, visceral organs, and limbs. The clinical manifestations of PAD are a major cause of acute and chronic illness, are associated with decrements in functional capacity and quality of life, cause limb amputation, and increase risk of death. Overall, PAD is increasingly recognized as a health burden worldwide.
