Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD)

Peripheral Artery Disease refers to a problem in blood circulation caused by narrowed arteries that reduce blood flow to your limbs. It’s also known as “hardening of the arteries.” Arteries slowly narrow as plaque – made of excessive fat, cholesterol and other substances – gradually forms inside the artery walls.
