Advanced Vascular Surgery can provide you with the proper diagnosis and treatment for venous insufficiency. Any condition in which the veins in your legs cannot supply a sufficient blood supply back to the heart would be considered as venous insufficiency. This condition can lead to blood pooling in the legs, which can result in further medical problems like varicose veins, leg and ankle swelling, and pain in the legs and feet while walking. These problems are commonly caused by blood clots and varicose veins. The blood clots prevent the proper blood flow, causing backups in the venous system. The varicose veins contain valves that are either missing or damaged, causing trouble with the flow of blood back to the heart. There are other issues that can inhibit the flow of blood and lead to venous insufficiency, including muscle atrophy in the legs due to injury or inactivity.
There are a wide range of issues that can result in venous insufficiency. Due to the numerous symptoms that can possibly cause this insufficiency and lead to other health issues, you should know what these symptoms are, so you can seek treatment as quickly as possible. These symptoms include:
If you have noticed any of the above symptoms, it is crucial to consult with a physician to get a proper diagnosis for what could be causing these issues. When you visit the professionals at Advanced Vascular Surgery will work closely with you to ensure a thorough diagnosis then formulate a treatment strategy for the venous insufficiency, based on the severity of your condition, age, medical history. With treatment options that range from prescription compression stockings and other medications to surgery for more severe cases, we will make sure that you get the treatment you need to improve the flow of blood in your legs.
As is the case with other diseases, the earlier a proper diagnosis is reached, the more successful the treatments and management of your symptoms will be.
