Personal Statement

Peripheral vascular disease can be arterial or venous in nature as they both compromise the circulation in the legs. Patients with history of diabetes, ulcerations of the leg or foot, previous surgery or amputation of the foot or leg, bypass surgery and smoke or use nicotine are at increased risk. Patients may observe tingling in the legs or feet, leg pain or fatigue with activity, changes in skin color or lesions on the legs or feet, loss of sensation in the lower extremity. Patients are recommended to have vascular exam, neurologic exam, and musculoskeletal exam of the feet and lower limb. Patients are then classified as very high risk to very low risk. The APC evaluating physician will determine the risk level and discuss options with the patient and their family upon request.
