Peripheral Vascular Disease

img-vascular-disease

Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) involves a narrowing of vessels that carry blood to the legs, arms, stomach or kidneys due to a build-up of fatty deposits. Because this condition leads to poor circulation which puts the patient at greater risk of heart attack or stroke, early detection is important.

PVD often presents symptoms first in the feet and ankles with pain, swelling, discoloration or ulcers. To aid in early diagnosis, vascular studies are provided onsite in our offices by a trained vascular technician. The study involves an ultrasound examination of arterial blood flow primarily in the legs and feet. Blockage and/or hardening of the arteries are also checked.

Study results are read by a vascular surgeon. If indicated, the Village Podiatry Centers’ doctor refers the patient to a vascular specialist. Treatment often involves lifestyle changes and/or medication.
