Lower Extremity Atherosclerotic Arterial Disease

People suffering from atherosclerosis should see a cardiovascular specialist in Beverly Hills as soon as possible because they are at high risk for developing life threatening cardiovascular problems, such as carotid artery disease and heart disease.

 
PRLog - Nov. 1, 2012 - BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. -- Lower extremity atherosclerotic arterial disease is a condition that arises when the lining of the arteries in the legs and the feet becomes damaged due to the accumulation of plaque on the arterial wall. This build up causes the lining of the walls to thicken, which significantly narrows the arteries. Because the arteries are so narrow, the blood slows and isn’t able to provide the proper circulation to the muscles and tissues in the lower region of the body. People suffering from atherosclerosis should see a cardiovascular specialist in Beverly Hills as soon as possible because they are at high risk for developing life threatening cardiovascular problems, including carotid artery disease and heart disease.
The following is a list of factors that increase the risk for developing lower extremity atherosclerotic arterial disease:
•   Smoking
•   High blood pressure
•   High levels of cholesterol
•   Diabetes
•   Obesity
•   A sedentary lifestyle
•   A family history of cardiovascular disease
Make an appointment with a cardiovascular specialist to check for lower extremity atherosclerotic arterial disease if experiencing any of the following symptoms:
•   Claudication, which includes any discomfort, cramping or pain in the thighs and calves while walking
•   Changes in sensation, such as numbness, tingling or coolness
•   Wounds in the lower region that have trouble healing
•   Decreased hair growth on the legs
•   Feet and leg ulcers, which can develop into gangrene
•   Black coloring on the skin near an occluded artery
To treat lower extremity arterial disease, physicians may begin by prescribing blood thinners or other medications. Minimally invasive procedures, such as balloon angioplasty and stenting, are also very common methods to reduce the narrowing of the arteries and improve blood circulation.
