Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) occurs when cholesterol and other fats circulating in the blood collect inside the walls of the arteries that supply blood to the limbs. This buildup (fatty plaque) narrows arteries and can lead to reduced or blocked blood flow. PAD most commonly occurs in the legs, but it can also be present in the arteries that carry blood from the heart to the head, arms, kidneys, and stomach.
Heart dysfunction broadly describes any condition that results in the heart not pumping blood as efficiently as it should. The rest of the body relies on oxygen and nutrients in the bloodstream to continue functioning properly. A reduction in blood flow to vital parts of the body initiates a series of compensation mechanisms that, if left unchecked, can cause irreversible damage to the heart.
