Free Screenings for Peripheral Artery Disease – PAD

Feel like you may be at risk for Peripheral Artery disease? Knowing your symptoms can greatly reduce your risk. MTV IR teamed up with the amazing people at The Branch Connection to offer FREE screenings on Thursday, August 29th and another screening session on September 9th.

For those not in the know, The Branch Connection in Famer’s Branch is an Active Adult Center and, as the name implies, they specialize in activities for the Senior Adult population. A truly awesome experience for anyone looking to get more active.

Back to the topic. Peripheral Artery Disease. For patients over 50, PAD can be somewhat detrimental if left untreated or unknown. In some worst-case scenarios can even cause amputation. One reason screening for PAD can be so important is because patients suffereing from PAD are at a 6-7 times greater risk for coronary artery disease, stroke, and heart attack.

What exactly is PAD?

When plaque builds up on the inside of the arteries that carries blood from the heart to legs and feet a process called artherosclerosis can happen. This plaque causes the arteries to narrow and harden, which significantly reduces the blood flow.

What are the Symptoms?

  • Heavy Feet
  • Cold Feet
  • Tingling legs
  • Foot Sores
  • Leg Pain

If you suffer from these symptoms and think you need to screen for PAD talk with your doctor or give the leading Dallas professionals at MTV IR a call at 469-458-9800.

The next free PAD screening session at The Branch Connection will be Thursday Sept. 9th.

If you can’t make it that day, that’s okay too. We ALWAYS offer free screening for PAD (peripheral artery disease), UFE (Uterine Fibroid Embolization), and PAE (prostate artery embolization).
