This overview of peripheral arterial disease, or PAD, includes information on atherosclerosis - a hardening and narrowing of the arteries that supply blood to the extremities or major organs, caused by the gradual buildup of plaque in blood vessels. Plaque buildup that occurs in the carotid artery, located in the neck, can lead to stroke. Although peripheral arterial disease cannot be cured, proper treatment together with a healthy lifestyle can help to improve blood flow and thereby prevent disease progression. With animated demonstrations to enhance the instructional presentation, this video covers signs and symptoms, common risk factors, diagnostic testing, treatment and follow-up, and tips for healthy living.
