PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASE SERVICES in Turkey
Do you experience leg pain during walking or climbing? This pain in your calf or buttock could be caused by peripheral vascular disease.
Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) – is a disorder of the circulatory system (arteries, veins and lymph vessels) in any area outside of the brain and heart. In PVD, the arteries slowly become narrowed or blocked by a plaque forms inside the artery walls, then blood cannot get through to nourish organs and other tissues, causing damage. Most common cause of the PVD is atherosclerosis and most commonly affected areas are legs and feet.
PVD can happen to anyone, regardless of age, but is most common in people over age 50 and almost 20 % of population age 65 and older already has PVD. Obesity, diabetes, smoking, sedentary lifestyle are the most important risk factors for developing PVD.
Disease can build up over a lifetime, and the symptoms may not become obvious until later in life. Many people simply live with their pain and do not recognize these as symptoms of PVD. It is important to recognize the signs of PVD as early as possible, so, proper treatment can be sought.
