Clotting and Vein Disease
If you struggle from veinous insufficiency, you have an increased risk of blood clots.
But The Vein Treatment Clinic of Tulsa can help reduce this risk. According to the Cleveland Clinic, 40% of all the adults in the United States have Chronic Venous Insufficiency, so you are not alone. We use innovative technology to treat veins, allowing our patients to return to a healthy and confident life.
Venous insufficiency happens when blood flow is restricted or deficient. Usually, the valves in the vein have been impaired or damaged. This prevents them from being able to send blood back to the heart. Since blood cannot travel back to the heart, a pooling of blood in the legs occurs.
- Varicose veins
- Swelling in the legs and ankles
- Leg cramps or pain
- Aching legs
- Leg ulcers or wounds on the skin
- Skin Flakes
- Restless legs
Some risk factors are:
- Family History
- Body weight
- Sedentary Occupation
- Previous Medical history
Complications can arise for those that don’t get treatment for venous insufficiency. This could include blood clots that can lead to deep vein thrombosis, inflammation and swelling, skin ulcers, pain, bleeding, and superficial thrombophlebitis.
These conditions can be avoided by getting treatment for veinous insufficiency.
At The Vein Treatment Clinic of Oklahoma, we offer the VenaSeal closure system which will close off the diseased vein by delivering medical adhesive that permanently seals the vein, routing blood flow through healthier veins.
If you have symptoms, you should see The Vein Treatment Clinic of Tulsa immediately.
As with many vein issues, the disease is progressive and worsens as you age. Get the help you need TODAY by calling 918-398-8900 today to make an appointment.
