What is Peripheral Vascular Disease?

Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD) refers to the narrowing or blockage of blood vessels outside of the heart and brain. This condition primarily affects the arteries that supply blood to the legs and arms, leading to reduced blood flow to these areas. PVD is commonly associated with atherosclerosis, a buildup of plaque within the arteries, which restricts blood flow and can cause symptoms such as leg pain, cramping, and numbness.
