Left untreated, PAD can lead to amputation

A way to allow blood to flow around blockages in your legs

If you have peripheral artery disease (PAD), your health care provider may recommend arterial bypass surgery. It’s a commonly used technique, especially if you have progressed to critical limb ischemia (CLI)16 — the worst form of PAD.5

In this type of procedure, your doctor will create a graft bypass using a vessel from another part of the body or a blood vessel made of synthetic fabric. This method allows blood to flow around – or bypass – the blocked or narrowed artery.35
