Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)
A common circulatory problem in which narrowed arteries reduce blood flow to your limbs. When you develop peripheral artery disease (PAD), your extremities — usually your legs — don't receive enough blood flow to keep up with demand of walking. This causes symptoms, most notably leg pain when walking (claudication), or weakness that can lead to falling.Critical Limb Disease
A sever obstruction of the arteries which markedly reduce blood flow to the extremities (hands, feet, and legs) and has progressed to the point of severe pain and even skin ulcers, sores or gangrene.
The alternative LIMB SALVAGE PROGRAM:
Re-establishment of blood flow in the affected limb with endovascular techniques.
