IMPORTANT FACTS ABOUT PERIPHERAL ARTERY DISEASE (PAD)

Posted by admin on Mar 23, 2012 8:31:33 AM

If you are diagnosed with PAD, your risk of a heart attack or stroke is much higher than the average person. Thus, you really need to know if you have PAD! As mentioned in my last blog, peripheral arterial disease, also known as hardening of the arteries, can cause leg pain. The most common complaint is known as claudication, where people experience calf pain after walking a certain distance. This pain is very reproducible.

Weak Veins vs. Hard Arteries

Posted by admin on Dec 13, 2011 4:42:00 PM

Many people ask me everyday whether or not they have to worry about PAD (peripheral arterial disease or hardening of the arteries), since this has received a great deal of press. Although less commonly mentioned in the news, venous disease is approximately ten times more frequent than arterial disease. The most common problem causing leg pains is called venous insufficiency (also known as chronic venous insufficiency, CVI) or venous reflux. So what’s the difference between the weak veins and hardening of the arteries?

The New Kid on the Block…Maybe the future of endovenous ablations?

Posted by admin on Nov 11, 2011 1:10:30 PM

The latest tool for the treatment of venous insufficiency, ClariVein®, has received some very encouraging, initial published results.

The ClariVein® device is a single use disposable system that provides a pharmaco-mechanical endovenous ablation treatment. It contains a rotating infusion catheter/wire with an angled tip that protrudes 2 centimeters. The wire rotates, mechanically damaging the endothelial layer of the vein, while at the same time, dispersing sclerosant (vein closing serum) The wire system is connected to a 9V battery–motorized handle unit which controls the wire rotation. There is a 5-mL syringe mounted on the motorized handle which is designed to deliver sclerosant. I had the great privilege to use this device recently.

Why Do Insurance Companies Require The Use of Compression Stockings before Vein Treatments?

Posted by admin on Sep 28, 2011 4:26:02 AM

To date, there has not been a single human being who has been cured of varicose veins with the use of graded compression stockings coupled with the use of anti-inflammatory medications. Interestingly, most insurance companies require individuals suffering from the symptoms of varicose veins and venous insufficiency to wear these stockings for weeks to months and frequently also require the use of anti-inflammatory drugs before they will allow an individual to be treated with the latest vein techniques. This all occurs despite the fact that compression stockings are impossible to wear for those who work in hot environments as well as elderly patients and those with arthritis and other disabilities. Why then would insurance companies require this when there are treatments available that immediately relieve symptoms of varicose veins and venous insufficiencies? Why would they want you to take medications that could potentially cause kidney damage when an endovenous procedure could be done that precludes their use?

New Hope for people with Lymphedema

Posted by admin on Sep 28, 2011 4:25:00 AM

Lymphedema refers to swelling that occurs in the arms or legs. The swelling is caused by a blockage in the lymphatic system which can be congenital in nature or be caused by trauma or surgery. The lymphatics are an important part of the immune and circulatory systems. Blockage prevents lymph fluid from draining out of the extremity and, as the fluid builds up, swelling occurs. Persons affected with lymphedema can also have problems with their veins which can mimic venous insufficiency, and there are many overlapping symptoms.
