Artery Disease (PAD) is a common circulatory problem. Plaque builds up inside the arteries in the
legs and obstructs blood flow to the lower limbs and feet. It is one of the
most common cardiovascular diseases, affecting eight to 12 million Americans
and 202 million people globally.
It is a
life-threatening condition that can managed and even reversed through the latest technological advancements with treatments
such as with Lightbox, an imaging system manufactured by Avinger
Technologies and only available in Central Jersey at Saint Peter’s.
develop PAD usually notice hip, leg or calf pain (called
"claudication") when walking. This pain occurs because the peripheral
arteries are not able to deliver enough blood flow to the surrounding muscles.
Sometimes, patients don’t know that they suffer from the condition.
