Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD)
Peripheral vascular disease (PVD), also known as peripheral arterial disease (PAD), is caused when fat builds up in the arteries and restricts blood flow to the legs. While PVD/PAD affects 1 in 5 men over the age of 70, like many other heart disorders it is preventable in many cases.
At Central Arkansas Cardiology Associates, we focus on customized treatment plans that help prevent PVD/PAD. Treatment plans often include:
Physical Exercise Regiment
Blood Pressure Management
If patients develop PVD/PAD, there are a number of PVD treatment options to help manage the disorder. For more information, please request an appointment with one of our cardiologists.
