WHAT IS PERIPHERAL ARTERIAL DISEASE?

Peripheral arterial disease is similar to coronary artery disease except the fact that buildup of fatty substance happens in arteries of pheripheral parts of body - legs, stomach or arms. It is also known as peripheral vascular disease. It generally has no symptoms, but nonspecific symptoms like pain while walking or rashes can be seen which disappear with little rest. This phenomena is called intermittent claudication or constriction.1

In Ayurveda, peripheral arterial disease is described as Uttana vatarakta. When kapha and pitta dosha start accumulating in the blood channels or marga, it causes blockages (avarana). Due to this circulating vata gets affected which is called vegapratibadha leading to vatarakta and its complications. Vatarakta is an illness where both vata and rakta are affected.2
