Peripheral Vascular Disease/Deep Vein Thrombosis

Presented By:Susanne Lester-Bennett & Julie Dillenbeck-Juers

Peripheral Vascular Disease/Deep Vein ThrombosisDefinition of ProblemPeripheral Vascular Disease (PVD):

Two distinct types of PVD (arterial, and venous).

Both involve the blood vessels of the lower extremities.

Dunphy, Winland-Brown, Porter, & Thomas (2011) Mosbys Dictionary of Medicine, Nursing, & Health Professions (2006) Reed, J. (2009)Two Types of PVDARTERIAL--Arteriosclerosis of the arteries impedes circulation from the heart to the lower extremities, causing ischemia of the muscles in the lower extremities; also known as peripheral artery disease (PAD).

VENOUS--Valve weakening, venous stasis, venous clot formation, chronic venous insufficiency, & deep vein thromboembolism are the major types of venous PVD. There are different degrees of PVD and they are characterized by a variety of signs and symptoms.

Dunphy, Winland-Brown, Porter, & Thomas (2011) Mosbys Dictionary of Medicine, Nursing, & Health Professions (2006) Reed, J. (2009)EtiologyPVD: Atherosclerosis is the most common cause of arterial stenoses.DVT: Abnormalities of coagulation, endothelial injury, and/or venous stasis contribute to DVTs.

IncidencePrevalence is estimated to be between 8 to 12 million. Many are asymptomatic and therefore are not diagnosed with this disease. In a study done (Reed, J.) from 1999-2004 in men & women aged 40-69 and 70+, results showed women 40-69 were 1.8 times more likely than men to have PAD, diabetics were 3.1 more likely than non-diabetics, and hypertensive patients were 3.1 times more likely than those with blood pressures of
