What is Peripheral Vascular Disease?
Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) involves damage to or blockage in the
blood vessels distant from your heart-the peripheral arteries and veins.
Your peripheral arteries and veins carry blood to and from your arm and
leg muscles and the organs in and below your stomach area. PVD may also
affect the arteries leading to your head. When PVD affects only the arteries
and not the veins, it is called peripheral arterial disease (PAD). The
main forms that PVD may take include blood clots, swelling (inflammation),
or narrowing and blockage of the blood vessels.
