Peripheral Artery Disease (P.A.D.) - P.A.D. is the number one cause of leg amputation in the USA. If P.A.D. is found, it is a strong indicator that blockage may also be present in the heart or brain. Early detection and treatment of P.A.D. can help prevent amputation, disabling pain in the legs and feet, as well as heart attack and stroke.

Stroke - Ischemic stroke, occurs when fatty plaque build up in the carotid arteries in the neck, cuts off the supply of oxygen rich blood to the brain. These arteries can be blocked as much as 95% with absolutely no symptoms. This plaque can be easily missed with a stethoscope during a routine physical. Abdominal Aorta Aneurysm (AAA) - The aorta is the main artery that comes off the heart , runs all the way through the abdomen and splits off to the legs. It supplies the body and vital organs with oxygen rich blood. Over time, the walls of the aorta can weaken, causing a ballooning effect or aneurysm. AAA is referred to as the "Silent Killer" because it very rarely gives you symptoms. If it ruptures, death can be instantaneous.
Ruptures are 95% fatal.
