What is PVD?

Feb 19, 2013

Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is an often overlooked and unpublicized disease that affects blood vessels outside of the heart and brain. This serious medical condition can result in the narrowing of arteries causing loss of blood circulation in the body’s extremities, leading to gangrene and possible limb amputation. Individuals diagnosed with PVD are also at greater risk for heart attack and stroke. If detected early, treatment is usually highly effective. DO NOT WAIT. Trust the Peripheral Vascular Institute of Arkansas to help identify your risk for PVD.
