PAD (peripheral artery/arterial disease) happens when the arteries in your legs and feet are blocked by a buildup of fat and calcium. The blockage reduces blood flow, which can lead to pain, muscle cramps, tightness, or weakness, especially during activity. Many patients do not experience symptoms in the early stages of PAD.
If PAD is left untreated, it can lead to:
- Leg pain while walking
- Leg numbness or weakness
- Coldness on lower leg or foot
- Sores on toes, legs, or feet that won’t heal
- Change in the color of legs
Torus2 is a Clinical Trial studying a new stent graft for the treatment of PAD in the SFA. The TORUS Stent Graft is a covered metal cage designed to open the blocked artery and allow blood to reach your legs and feet.
