Individuals with the disease have a five-fold increased relative risk of a cardiovascular ischemic event and total mortality that is two to three times greater than those without it.

People with peripheral vascular disease often change their lifestyles, especially when they have standing professions and can’t tolerate being on their feet all day.

Screenings for vascular disease include a limited ultrasound and ankle brachial index. The screenings are quick and painless.

Contact Coastal Vein Institute, 682-0032, to register for the screening.
