PAD (peripheral artery/arterial disease) means clogged arteries in your legs. PAD develops when your arteries become blocked with plaque – fatty deposits that limit blood flow to your legs and feet.
PAD may cause:
- Heaviness, cramping, or pain in the leg muscles after a short walk
- Pain in your legs or feet while resting
- Sores, wounds, or ulcers on the toes, feet, or legs that are slow to heal
Unfortunately, PAD cannot be cured, but the DETOUR procedure may improve blood flow and control your symptoms.
