Cardiovascular Conference Series: Diagnosis and Medical Management of Peripheral Arterial Disease

Miami, FL US
March 12, 2020

The presence of lower extremity peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a marker for systemic atherosclerotic disease in other vascular beds, such as the coronary, carotid, and renal arteries, and abdominal aorta. Approximately 8 to 12 million Americans have PAD, including 15% to 20% of adults older than 70 years. Diagnosing PAD can lead to early detection and treatment of other cardiovascular diseases.

Join Dr. Ashok Mittal as he addresses the importance of early diagnosis and management of PAD.
