Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) describes blocked arteries outside of the heart. It is a buildup of plaque in the walls of arteries, which limits or stops the flow of oxygen-rich blood to your limbs.
If blood cannot reach your feet, it may cause pain while walking and damage to the skin and muscles in your legs and feet. Peripheral arterial disease also puts you at greater risk of stroke or heart attack, so it is important to know your risk.
PAD is most typically seen in the lower extremities.
