The circulatory system, also known as the cardiovascular system circulates blood to and from the cells. It consists of the: heart, blood vessels, arteries, veins, and capillaries. The upper part of the heart receives the blood as it enters the heart and the bottom pumps blood out. Then, the arteries transport blood away heart through the body and the veins move blood back to the heart.
Sometimes these pathways, the arteries and veins, run into difficulties, but the interventional radiologists at WVU can help correct these problems.
Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD)
Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a common circulatory problem in which the arteries that carry blood to the legs or arms become narrowed or clogged. This interferes with the normal flow of blood, sometimes causing pain, but often causing no symptoms at all. PAD clogged or narrowed arteries in the legs are a red flag, because PAD is associated with other life-threatening vascular diseases.
