Vascular diseases of the lower limb
Vascular diseases of the lower limb encompass a Peripheral Arterial disease of the legs and Chronic Arterial Insufficiency of the decrease extremities. PAD is the condition of blood vessels that deliver the legs and feet. It consists of the narrowing and hardening of the arteries that effects in decreased blood glide, which could injure nerve and other tissues. This trouble occurs because of the build-up of fatty material (plaque) on the internal wall of arteries. Plaque is made up of extra cholesterol, calcium in the blood. Blood incorporates the oxygen to the decrease extremities, but plaque build-up starves the tissues and muscles in decrease limb. The underlying mechanism is usually atherosclerosis. The predominant hazard factors encompass cigarette smoking, diabetes, excessive blood cholesterol, and excessive blood strain.
