Peripheral Arterial Disease

Peripheral Arterial Disease (P.A.D.) is a serious circulatory problem in which the blood vessels that carry blood to your arms, legs, brain, or kidneys, becomes narrow or clogged. It affects over 8 million americans, most over the age of 50. It may result in leg discomfort with walking, poor healing of leg sores/ulcers, difficultto control blood pressure, or symtoms of stroke. People with P.A.D. are at significantly increased risk of stroke and heart attack. Answers to these questions will determine if you are at risk for P.A.D. and if a vascular exam will help us better assess your vascular health status.

The American Heart Association (AHA), American College Cardiology (ACC), American Diabetes Association (ADA) and American College of Physicians (ACP) recommend if you circled yes to any of the questions on the screening/assessment that you have a test for circulation in your legs known as the Ankle Brachial Index - ABI .
