Information About the Disease
Peripheral Vascular Disease
Peripheral vascular disease (PVD), also referred to as peripheral artery disease, is a slow and progressive circulation disorder caused by narrowing, blockage or spasm in a blood vessel. PVD may involve any blood vessels outside of the heart and brain including arteries, veins or lymphatic vessels. These vessels carry blood to and from the legs, arms, stomach or kidneys, and may not get enough blood to function properly. The most common cause of PVD is atherosclerosis, but may include coronary artery disease, injury or infection.
