Testing for Peripheral Arterial Disease

Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) is a serious circulatory condition where clogged or narrowed arteries cause poor circulation to the arms, legs, brain or kidneys. It occurs most often in the lower extremities, causing decreased blood flow to the legs and feet. Just like build-up in the heart, clogged arteries in the lower extremities can cause a stroke or a heart attack. Eight to twelve million Americans have PAD and, if left untreated, it can be fatal.

Fortunately, today there is a non-invasive technology that can determine the presence of PAD. PAD-net™ is a PAD test that can be completed in 15 to 20 minutes during a regular office visit.

For patients with increased risk factors, including those of 65 years of age or older with a history of diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or smoking, being informed about this arterial disease is essential. Leg pain and discoloration of the toes or feet are possible symptoms of PAD. It is important to note, however, that many people with PAD do not experience any symptoms. Testing can help to determine whether you have PAD, and whether medical or surgical treatment is necessary.
