What is Venous Disease?
Venous disease describes a broad range of conditions including: varicose veins, deep venous thromboembolism (DVT), chronic venous insufficiency and other conditions impacting healthy circulation..
What are the symptoms of Venous Disease?
Patients can experience mild symptoms such as burning or cramping over varicose veins, or a heavy feeling in the legs from chronic venous insufficiency. They may also develop “thrombus” or clotting in one or more veins termed deep vein thrombosis when involving the veins within the limbs and superficial thrombophlebitis when involving one of the superficial veins. Ultrasound testing is performed to determine the presence or absence of venous thrombosis, thrombophlebitis, and chronic venous insufficiency.
