PAD Assessment

Your risk level is: High

Answering “yes” to any of these questions indicates that you are at high risk of PAD, which occurs when the arteries of the leg become narrowed or clogged with fatty deposits, or plaque. If untreated, PAD can lead to pain at rest or amputation of the affected leg. You should request that your primary care physician refer you for a screening at Memorial Heart and Vascular Center of Excellence by calling ONE Call at (618) 767-7000. ONE Call is available 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday.
