How is P.A.D. Managed?

The risks associated with P.A.D. can be reduced through early diagnosis and lifestyle changes. However, in some patients, lifestyle changes alone may not be enough to manage the risks associated with P.A.D. such as heart attack or stroke. Antiplatelet medications proven to help reduce these risks and keep blood platelets from sticking together and forming clots may be necessary. PLAVIX(R) (clopidogrel bisulfate) is the only prescription antiplatelet therapy with proven efficacy and a well-established safety profile for a broad range of patients, including those with P.A.D. Medical guidelines recommend antiplatelet therapy, like PLAVIX, in addition to other risk-reducing medications for P.A.D. patients. It is important that people talk to their doctors if they suspect that they may have P.A.D.; a simple, painless test can show if the condition is present.

About P.A.D. "Hot Spots"

P.A.D. "Hot Spots" was derived from the National Minority Quality Forum's "P.A.D. Atlas," which evaluated the prevalence of diagnosed and undiagnosed peripheral artery disease nationwide, by state, by metropolitan statistical area (MSA), and by zip code. The "P.A.D. Atlas" comprised data from the 2005 Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System to produce maps depicting P.A.D. prevalence, and the U.S. Census (2000) to estimate the age, gender and race/ethnicity as well as the total population in the United States. The Forum uses its comprehensive database to identify and isolate chronic diseases that disproportionately impact racial and ethnic minorities and special populations.
