PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE (PAD)
Peripheral arterial disease, or PAD, is a serious health problem in the United States and it is significantly under diagnosed. Peripheral arterial disease specialists warn that one-third of all patients who require amputation as a result of PAD will die within 2 to 4 years and nearly 50% won’t live more than 5 years. There is also evidence that those who suffer from peripheral arterial disease most likely have other areas with blocked arteries, which can lead to heart attacks and stroke. Risk factors include aging, diabetes, and smoking.

VENOUS REFLUX DISEASE
In the human body’s vascular system, arteries carry blood away from the heart and around the body, while veins carry it back. Valves inside the veins help keep the blood from moving backwards. Venous reflux disease (VRD), occurs when veins fail to return blood to the heart properly. The condition most commonly affects the legs. It causes uncomfortable symptoms, such as pain and ulcers, and can worsen without treatment.
