Screening For Peripheral Vascular Disease

Peripheral Vascular Disease is a very common condition, and affects as many as 20% of Americans over the age of 65 (or 30 million people). It’s most often caused by plaque that builds up and narrows the arteries. This is known as atherosclerosis, or more commonly known as, “hardening of the arteries.” People with PVD are more likely to have blocked arteries in other parts of their bodies, and are at greater risk for heart disease, aortic aneurysms and stoke.

Therefore, physicians recommend Carotid, Abdominal and Leg Arterial screening exams for those risks.
