Veins are tiny, hollow tubes with valves that allow blood to flow to your heart. Therefore, venous diseases include deep vein thrombosis, varicose veins, spider veins, phlebitis, chronic vein insufficiency, and excessive blood clotting. They cause damage to valves in the veins causing blood to build up in areas such as the legs and even cause blood to flow backward. A vein specialist in Yonkers offers various comprehensive treatment options for various venous conditions.
Premier Vascular provides the following treatment to alleviate your venous problems:
Your vein specialist may recommend you do the following to help blood circulation and avoid venous problems from occurring.
Avoiding sitting and standing for long periods but take breaks to improve blood circulation
Elevating the affected area when resting to prevent blood clots
Lose weight since excess weight puts pressure and strains on the veins
Avoid soaking in a hot water bath for long periods
Have enough rest, apply warm and moist compresses
Wearing compression stocking reduces and prevents swelling and reduces blood clot risks.
It would be best to have a doppler investigation to wear compression stockings and tights since they aren’t suitable for everyone.
Your vein specialist may prescribe the following to relieve pain:
Painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs such as aspirin to reduce swelling
Anticoagulant or blood thinners to prevent blood clots
Thrombolytic and antibiotics to dissolve the blood clot and treat infection
Minimally invasive procedures
Problems in your veins may become chronic and cause such discomfort that the best treatment eliminates them. Closing and removing the damaged vein prevents blood from building up and causing discomfort. The procedures allow blood to find a new path through healthy veins, and the old one disappears.
The following are the procedures used, both surgical and non-surgical:
It is the injection of fluid or foam solution to the damaged vein to shrink them, and then they collapse and eventually disappear. It is used to treat small varicose veins and spider veins.
It is the use of lasers and radio waves to close veins that are not working. A catheter is inserted into the vein guided by a laser or radio wave probe to close the damaged vein.
Catheters are used to insert small balloons to open blockages in the legs, arms, and kidneys.
Vena cava filter placement
Metal filters are inserted into the abdominal veins to prevent blood clots from reaching the lungs and heart.
Thin catheters are used to direct medications into blood clots to dissolve them.
It involves heating the damaged vein until the walls collapse, closing it, and sealing it shut.
Vein ligation and stripping
The procedure treats severe varicose vein cases by surgically tying off the affected vein and removing it.
Stitches and a special ring are used to tighten and return a damaged valve to its shape.
Blood flow around a blocked vein is rerouted.
Endoscopic vein surgery
It helps to treat ulcers on perforator veins.
