Peripheral Vascular Disease (PVD)
Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is a disease of the circulatory system in which narrowed blood vessels restrict the flow of blood to the limbs. Symptoms may include leg pain, particularly when walking. Smoking may enhance the risk of this disease. Lifestyle changes, including exercise, and a healthy diet are often successful treatments. Medication or surgery may be required if those changes do not improve the condition.
