PAD: Peripheral Arterial Disease

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a widespread group of vascular diseases, due to arterial stenosis or occlusion, in which blood flow in the affected limbs is reduced. It is estimated that PAD affects more than 230 million people worldwide. Due to the large number of asymptomatic PAD cases (>50% of PAD patients), it is difficult to accurately estimate the PAD prevalence. PAD is associated with traditional atherosclerosis risk factors, including age, smoking, dyslipidemia, arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, etc. In women, the PAD incidence is similar only in old age, whereas in patients under 65 years - it is reduced by about half, compared to men [1-6].
