Lifestyle Changes Remain Important in Fighting Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
Date:10/21/2009

h shows that the highest risk populations for PAD include seniors (12-20 percent develop the disease), African-Americans (twice as likely to develop clogged leg arteries) and diabetics (one in three who are over the age of 50 develop PAD). In many cases, PAD can be treated with medication (such as blood thinners or drugs that dilate an affected artery), lifestyle changes (such as smoking cessation), diet and a structured exercise program. With early detection, patients could see an interventional radiologist when intervention is most effective and less invasive treatments are an option. If needed, interventional radiologists can perform minimally invasive angioplasty and/or stenting to open a blocked artery in the leg and restore blood flow.

The Society of Interventional Radiology's Legs for Life(R) Web site (www.legsforlife.org) offers a free online health, family and lifestyle risk quiz for PAD. The higher one's score, the more important it is for that individual to discuss the quiz's results with his or her doctor. More information about the Society of Interventional Radiology, peripheral arterial disease (or PAD), Legs for Life(R) and the Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology can be found online at www.SIRweb.org.

"Should Incidental Asymptomatic Angiographic Stenoses and Occlusions Be Treated in Patients With Peripheral Arterial Disease?" is published in the September Journal of Vascular and Interventional Radiology. Co-authors are Michael J. Lee, MSc, FRCPI, FFRRCSI, FRCR; Aoife N. Keeling, FFRRCSI, MRCPI, MSca; and Alaa S. Ayyoub, M..D,
