Optimize Meds for Peripheral Artery Disease
You'll hear debate about how to manage stable peripheral artery disease (PAD)...now that rivaroxaban (Xarelto) is approved for this use.
Think of managing PAD as similar to coronary artery disease...both are due to plaque buildup.
We know PAD patients have a high risk of complications...such as CV events or limb amputation. Plus they may develop symptoms...claudication or pain that reduces walking distance and quality of life.
