Higher risk.: If you have peripheral artery disease (pad). You are at a much higher risk of both heart attack and stroke than someone who does not. That is because the same build-up in the arteries of a fatty substance called plaque that is a cause of peripheral artery disease is also a cause of heart attack and stroke.
