PAD is the narrowing or blocking of the arteries that carry blood from the heart to the extremities, and it is severely underdiagnosed.
Annual PAD-related Medicare expenses exceed $84 billion. The Medicare intervention costs per year among individuals with PAD reach $70,000 per patient. For individuals who have both PAD and diabetes mellitus, the cost per year increases to approximately $120,000.
Between 51-93% of lower limb amputations are attributed to peripheral artery disease. Furthermore, these PAD-related amputations increase risk of death: 70% of PAD patients who have a leg amputation will die within three years.
