Atherosclerotic Vascular Disease - Symptoms and Treatment

Atherosclerotic vascular disease refers to the narrowing and hardening of the arteries in the bodyand occurs secondary to a process known as atherosclerotic vascular disease. Severe untreated atherosclerotic vascular disease can result in gangrene, or tissue death due to an inadequate blood supply. Another rarer form of atherosclerotic vascular disease, known as Buerger's disease can be referenced separately. Atherosclerotic vascular disease involves, for the most part, the arteries of the lower extremities. The progressive deprivation of oxygen rich blood to the lower extremities results in the symptoms of this disease. A number of definite risk factors have been identified for the development of this disease process.
