Venous Disease Q & A

What is venous disease?

Venous disease describes conditions that affect your veins, the vessels that carry blood back to your heart from other areas of your body.

Several types of venous diseases can limit blood circulation in your veins, including:

Varicose veins

Varicose veins —  enlarged, twisted veins — typically affect the legs. Vein damage occurs when faulty valves can’t prevent blood from flowing backward through the vessel. Over time, blood pools in the vein and causes an enlargement.

Chronic venous insufficiency

Chronic venous insufficiency causes the pooling of blood in your leg vessels, which can lead to chronic swelling, skin discoloration, and leg ulcers.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)

Deep vein thrombosis describes a blood clot in the veins deep within your body. This condition can become life-threatening if the clot breaks away and travels to your lungs.

Third Coast Vascular offers comprehensive care for venous diseases in adults. The physicians provide diagnostic technologies on-site to evaluate your vein health. They customize a care plan to treat or remove damaged veins and improve blood circulation in your legs.

How do I know I have venous disease?

Schedule a diagnostic evaluation at Third Coast Vascular if you have noticeably enlarged veins in your legs that ache or burn.

You should also book an evaluation if you have other symptoms of venous disease that affects your legs, such as:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Itching
  • Heaviness
  • Frequent cramping

The physicians may order an ultrasound or other imaging test to assess blood flow through your veins. They also offer wound care services in-office to evaluate leg ulcers that can result from venous disease.

How is venous disease treated?

The goals of treating venous disease include relieving your existing symptoms and improving blood flow through your lower extremities.

Third Coast Vascular offers several treatment strategies for vein conditions. The specialists may initially recommend compression stockings, nutritional counseling, and exercises you can do to improve your vein health.

The physicians also offer medications and perform sclerotherapy or deep venous interventions to permanently close or remove damaged veins. Blood naturally moves to nearby healthy veins to boost blood circulation.
