What are the best treatments for peripheral artery disease (PAD)?

What are the best treatments for Peripheral Artery Disease or PAD? Please list pros and cons.

  1. Thank you Leon.

    I submitted this in response to a reader asking for which treatments work best. I'll forward her this link!
    I believe she has specific questions and hopefully these articles, or other readers response will help her make decisions.

    All Best Thanks! Karen, Community Moderator

    1. Hi Karen - it's my pleasure!

      I also hope the articles are helpful for the reader to whom you channeled the information. Perhaps she will respond to you with her views of the information (whether it was helpful for her).

      Always happy to assist when possible.
      Regards,

  2. Hi Karen - excellent question - thanks for posting it!
    You may be aware, peripheral artery disease (PAD) is sometimes called peripheral vascular disease or atherosclerosis, and sometimes even hardening of the arteries.

    We actually have some material published right here on our COPD.net website on this very topic.

    For your convenience, here are links to two of them:
    First, this one, on the causes of peripheral artery disease (PAD) https://copd.net/clinical/peripheral-artery-disease-causes/.

    And next, this article on the symptom(s) of PAD: https://copd.net/clinical/peripheral-artery-disease-symptoms/.

    I do hope you find them to be helpful and they provide answers for your concern.

    Wishing you well,
    Leon (site moderator COPD.net)
