This condition is also known as Peripheral Arterial Disease.
PAD occurs when blood flow to peripheral body parts is restricted by a narrowing or blockage of the arteries. This can affect the arms, but circulation issues most often occur in the legs. This can cause pain and the limb may feel cold and look pale. The condition can also cause loss of limb function, and wounds on the affected limb may not heal. Several vascular procedures such as bypasses or medications can address this issue. In cases where the condition has progressed, an amputation may be required. Peripheral vascular disease is often the root of vascular conditions such as limb ischemia.
