Perpiheral Vascular Disease
Symptoms of peripheral vascular disease depend on what artery is affected and how severely the blood flow is reduced. For example, you may experience a dull, cramping pain, numbness or tingling, or a change in skin color. Peripheral vascular disease is caused by the build-up of atherosclerotic plaque in your arteries.
Peripheral vascular disease may be treated with medication, surgery, minimally invasive interventional procedures, or a combination of these therapies. Seek physician advice and an exact diagnosis.
Because Peripheral Vascular Disease affects circulation it is important to have properly fitted footwear and socks so that nothing rubs or irritates the skin. When poor circulation affects the lower extremity it can be very hard to heal blisters, irritations or wounds.hysician advice for surgical options.
