Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a circulatory disease in which plaque builds up in the arteries of the leg. This buildup of plaque narrows or blocks blood flow in the legs, which reduces the circulation of blood to organs and could cause a cardiovascular event like a heart attack or stroke.
PAD is a common disease that affects between 13% to 20% of those 65 and older. About 8 to 12 million people in the US have this disease. People who smoke and those with diabetes are at especially high risk.
Among patients with PAD, about half do not have any symptoms. However, identification of this disease is important, as PAD is a marker of future cardiovascular events. People with PAD are at least 3 times more likely to experience a cardiovascular event in the future (source: https://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/nejm199202063260605).
