Vascular Interventional Radiology
Your vascular system is a maze of arteries, veins and tiny capillaries spreading out from the heart to deliver oxygen and nutrients to every cell in the body. As blood circulates, it removes carbon dioxide, toxins and waste materials.
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a very common condition. PAD develops most commonly as a result of atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries, which occurs when cholesterol and scar tissue build up, forming a substance called plaque inside the arteries.
PAD is a systemic disease and affects the body as a whole. Individuals with PAD are likely to have blocked arteries in all areas of the body, including the legs, arms, brain, or abdominal organs.
