One of the most common vascular diseases, Peripheral Arterial Disease (P.A.D.), occurs when leg arteries become narrowed or blocked by plaque. These blockages can result in severe pain, limited physical mobility and non-healing leg ulcers. According to the American Heart Association, approximately 10 million people in the U.S. suffer from P.A.D.
The STROLL study and the SFA indication for the SMART Stent represent the latest commitments by Cordis to continue its groundbreaking work in the fight against vascular disease.
