Dr. Subbarao Myla and Dr. Jacques Kpodonu Discuss Peripheral Vascular Disease

Dr. Subbarao Myla and Dr. Jacques Kpodonu Discuss Peripheral Vascular Disease on American Health Journal. Peripheral vascular disease (PVD), also referred to as peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is the development of fatty deposits or plaques localizing in the arteries and casing the walls of the arteries to become narrowed. As the fatty deposits grow larger, the arteries lose their elasticity and the smooth walls become rough causing more fatty deposits to grow on the arterial walls. Peripheral vascular disease is a condition of the blood vessels that leads to narrowing and hardening of the arteries that supply the legs and feet. For more information, visit:
