Your arteries and veins carry life-giving blood and oxygen throughout your body. But blood clots or plaque in your blood vessels can lead to heart attack, stroke or chronic health conditions.Peripheral vascular disease (PVD) is a slow and progressive circulation disorder caused by narrowing, blockage, or spasms in a blood vessel. PVD may involve disease in any of the blood vessels outside of the heart including the arteries, veins, or lymphatic vessels. Organs supplied by these vessels, such as the brain, and legs, may not get enough blood flow for proper function. Listen in as Robert Brockman, MD discusses PVD and how Tidelands Health will take steps to protect your well-being with quality vascular care.
