Vascular ServicesPeripheral artery disease (PAD) is a condition similar to coronary artery disease, except it affects other vessels in the body – such as those in the legs or kidneys – rather than those of the heart.

Symptoms associated with vascular disease include poor circulation from narrowing of the arteries and other conditions that can lead to strokes and aneurysms.

According to the American Heart Association, more than 8 million Americans have PAD, and nearly 75 percent of those people do not have any symptoms. In addition, most people with PAD have a higher risk of death from heart attack and stroke. While many people with PAD can be treated with lifestyle changes, medications or both, in some cases, angioplasty or surgery may be necessary.

Diagnosis of vascular disease begins in the W.D. Stribling Heart Clinic.
