We need a new strategy for tackling peripheral artery disease
from The Hill
It is simply unacceptable that in 2017, so many Americans undergo a nontraumatic limb amputation each year. Yet, as we recognize Peripheral Artery Disease Awareness Month this September, estimates suggest between 160,000 and 180,000 Americans lose one of their limbs every year — about half of which are attributable to preventable vascular diseases. This figure includes 43,000 Medicare beneficiaries, according to Avalere.
