Cardiovascular disease is the #1 cause of death in the United States. Almost 1 in 3 patients with heart disease have diseases of the blood vessels outside the heart known as peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Furthermore, in patients who have PAD, 1 in 3 will die within 5 years; and 75% of those deaths will be due to cardiovascular causes. It is important to recognize that the same disease processes that cause artery disease in the heart can also cause disease in other arteries outside the heart, such as the neck, kidneys, and legs. Unfortunately, many patients with PAD have no symptoms or atypical symptoms. Often, this condition remains mis- or undiagnosed until severe disease is manifested, leading to life and limb threatening conditions.
