Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD), also known as Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD), is a narrowing or blockage of the arteries in the peripheral regions of the body, such as the legs.

PAD is commonly caused by atherosclerosis, a condition in which fatty deposits or cholesterol accumulate on the inner walls of the arteries, forming plaques.
