Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) Treatment at One Stop Vascular Solutions, Hyderabad, India

Understanding and Managing Peripheral Artery Disease

Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) is a condition affecting blood vessels outside the heart and brain, causing narrowing due to fatty deposits. This constriction restricts blood flow to areas like the arms, legs, kidneys, and stomach. Common in older individuals with atherosclerosis, PAD poses a significant risk for stroke and heart attack, with a higher incidence in men. One Stop Vascular Solutions in Hyderabad, India, excels in providing extensive diagnostic and treatment services for PAD, ensuring optimal patient care.
