Global Peripheral Artery Disease Market Report: 2016 Edition
Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is a medical condition in which plaque builds up on the artery walls, blocking the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the legs, stomach, and arms. Major factors causing PAD are smoking, diabetes, high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels, advancing age and a personal history of vascular disease. The earliest symptom of Peripheral Artery Disease is a cramp-like muscular discomfort called intermittent claudication, while numbness, tingling, weakness or fatigue is also experienced. Patients with severe PAD often develop ulcers in their legs and feet. Its prevention involves a lifelong program involving certain lifestyle changes like healthy eating and physical exercise.
Medical Diagnosis of PAD includes methods like Ankle-Brachial Index, Ultrasound, Angiography, Catheter Angiography and Blood Tests. There are a number of treatment options for the disease that can be used alone or mixed with other devices. They are Percutaneous Trans Luminal Angioplasty (PTA), Drug-Coated Balloons, Stents, Drug-Eluting Stents, Arterial Bypass and Atherectomy.
