Example text

Note that claudication does not affect the joints, such as the hip, knee, or ankle. Claudication very rarely affects the foot or toes. Pain at these sites is much more likely to represent another disease. One way to think of claudication accurately is to consider it similar to the discomfort that affects patients with coronary (heart) artery blockages. ” 23. Why do my muscles hurt when I exercise? One or more blockages in the leg arteries may cause reduced blood flow to the working leg muscles.

Phlegmasia cerulea dolens A rare condition where DVT blockage of blood out of the leg impairs the heart’s ability to pump blood into the leg. When this occurs, the blood flow to the leg arteries may cause muscle pain even at rest. 20. Does infection cause PAD? Although some studies have shown the presence of bacteria in cholesterol plaques in leg arteries, the data are unclear as to whether this is an insignificant association or a causative agent. 15 PAD Pathophysiology No, or almost never. Veins do not supply blood to the legs, although they do work to return blood from the legs to the heart.

Yes. A sudden and complete occlusion of the artery in the leg is called acute arterial occlusion or acute limb ischemia, which is sometimes abbreviated ALI. This condition is, however, a relatively rare phenomenon and typically occurs due to either a blood clot (thrombus) traveling from upstream (the heart) or an aortic or popliteal aneurysm to a more distant leg artery. 15. What is severe PAD or “critical limb ischemia”? If PAD progresses to the point of severely reducing blood flow to the legs even at rest, then the survival of Claudication Fatigue, discomfort, or pain that occurs in the leg muscles during exercise and that always resolves promptly with rest.
