What are the dangers of living with PAD?

PAD is likely to be a sign of a more widespread accumulation of fatty deposits in the arteries (atherosclerosis). This condition may result in reduced blood flow to the heart and brain that increases the risk of a heart attack or stroke. If left untreated, severe PAD can lead to gangrene affecting the legs and could result in amputation.
