Open sores are excruciating, especially when referring to those on someone’s feet. If you have some, too, you need to go to the doctor. Open sores could actually be a less-known sign of a heart issue called aortoiliac occlusive disease. This heart condition refers to the blockage of the body’s main blood vessel, a.k.a. the aorta.
