Don’t Hide Your Legs: Solutions for Chronic Venous Insufficiency

Chronic venous insufficiency comprises a number of vascular conditions that primarily affect the lower limbs.

Studies show that about 150,000 new cases are diagnosed each year and up to 17 percent of men and 40 percent of women may suffer from venous disease.

If you’re one of them, you’re not alone.

What is Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI)?

CVI occurs when veins valves are damaged and blood that should be pumped cleanly back to the heart begins to reflux or move backward, in the veins of the leg.

This leads to blood pooling in the legs, ankles, and feet and further weakening vein walls causing “leaky veins.”

Eventually, varicose veins — the twisting, purplish veins that often bulge from your legs — and spider veins can result. The first symptoms of CVI are often swelling of the legs and ankles, leg pain, restless legs, leg cramps, and a feeling of leg heaviness.

While most people are more concerned about the cosmetic issues like varicosities and discolored skin, over time, serious complications like blood clots in the deep veins of the legs — deep vein thrombosis (DVT) — can evolve.

What Can I Do About CVI?

CVI is a progressive condition and the earlier you catch it, the more treatable it is.

The first step is to see a doctor that specializes in vein treatments to determine if you have CVI and to what extent.

A qualified doctor will use simple, painless, non-invasive ultrasound along with Doppler technology to check for vein disease in legs from thigh to ankle.

Successful Treatments for CVI

If you’ve got CVI you may be anxious to get rid of your varicose veins and spider veins. While there are many home remedies out there, many of them are dangerous and ineffective.

The only safe and effective varicose vein treatment and spider veins removal treatments are administered by qualified professionals in a medical environment.

Fortunately, these Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved therapies have a long track record of success.

Let’s take a look:

Sclerotherapy

For getting rid of those pesky spider veins, you have a choice of laser or injection sclerotherapy. Both can be administered in-office, and there’s no downtime with either.

Neither requires anesthesia, because there is little discomfort associated with the procedures, although laser sclerotherapy often requires multiple treatments since the hand-piece of the laser must be traced over individual veins.

These treatments can be used together to boost effectiveness and results.

Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)

For varicose veins, EVLA is a new technology that has rapidly become the standard for varicose veins treatments.

Diseased veins are mapped with ultrasound and a thin catheterized laser is inserted into each vein. A burst of energy from the laser then seals the vein, which is eventually absorbed into the body over time.

There is minimal bruising and a high rate of patient satisfaction.

CMG promotes DVT and vein treatment awareness

March 6th, 2013. Paramus, NJ. Chuback Medical Group, a leading vein treatment center in Paramus, NJ, is doing its part to reach out to the public and raise awareness for a serious vein condition.

March is Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) month, and the Chuback Medical Group has joined in the effort to decrease the number of serious illnesses and deaths as a result of DVT. DVT is a condition in which blood clots form in the deep leg veins. Clots can break free and travel to the lungs, potentially causing pulmonary embolism. This can be fatal if not detected and treated early.

Under the direction of Dr. John Chuback, a top vein disease specialist in Paramus, NJ, the vein clinic is using Facebook and Twitter to spread the word about this vein disorder. Chuback Medical Group has released an informative video about deep vein thrombosis to help empower the public to protect their health.
