Peripheral Artery Disease (PAD) develops when the vessels in your legs become blocked by fatty plaque buildup (atherosclerosis). This restricts the flow of blood and oxygen from the heart to the legs. The result is discomfort or pain in the hips, buttocks, thighs, knees, shins, or upper feet when you walk. Untreated, PAD may place you at a greater risk for a heart attack or stroke, or even limb loss.
