VARICOSE VEINS

Varicose Veins – ropey, enlarged, dilated veins
WHAT ARE VARICOSE VEINS?
Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen and twisting veins that often appear blue or dark purple. They happen when faulty valves in the veins allow blood to flow in the wrong direction. If left untreated they can cause skin changes and ulcers.
INTERVENTION

A fine tube is inserted into the vein that process heat
to close the vein so the blood travels through normal veins.

A fine needle is inserted into the vein and a chemical
is injected that seals the vein off.

DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS

Deep Vein Thrombosis  – Vein clot
WHAT IS DEEP VENOUS THROMBOSIS (DVT) OR SUPERFICIAL THROMBOSIS?

Deep venous thrombosis is where a clot forms in the veins deep next to the artery or close to the skin.  This can cause damage that results in skin changes and ulcers or pain and swelling when the leg is dependent.

INTERVENTION

Blood thinning to prevent clot from spreading to the lungs and causing a pulmonary embolus.

A fine needle is inserted into the vein and a chemical is injected that seals the vein off.

Insertion of a metal device that keeps chronically damaged veins open to improve the flow.

CAROTID STENOSIS

Carotid Stenosis – narrowed or blocked neck arteries
WHAT IS CAROTID STENOSIS?

Carotid Stenosis is a narrowing or blockage in the neck artery. Parts of the narrowing can break off and result in a stroke or mini stroke.

treatment/ INTERVENTION

Stopping smoking and living healthy lifestyle with good diet.

Mini aspirin and cholesterol pills to reduce risk of stroke or mini stroke.

Carotid Endarterectomy will be discussed depending on indication and degree of narrowing.

ABDOMINAL AORTIC ANEURYSM

WHAT IS AN ABDOMINAL AORTIC ANEURYSM?
Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm (AAA or triple A) is an enlarged blood vessel in the abdomen. They usually cause no symptoms, except if they rupture/burst which can be life threatening.
treatment
Ultrasound or CT scan can be used to watch the size of the aneurysm until it gets to a size where we worry about it bursting.

Endovascular Aortic Aneurysm Repar (EVAR) – a stent is placed inside the artery to keep blood out of the aneurysm and reducing the risk of rupture

The artery is replaced though a cut in the abdomen. By replacing the aneurysm it reduces the risk of rupture

PERIPHERAL ARTERY DISEASE

WHAT CAUSES LEG ARTERY DISEASE?

Blood supply to the leg is reduced from narrowing or blockages of the artery. This results in muscle pain/ache when walking or in severe cases pain at rest and foot wounds. It also can present with foot/leg wound that is slow to heal but not causing symptoms otherwise.

treatment

Smoking cessation, blood pressure and cholesterol control.

A needle is placed into an artery to allow a metal stent or a balloon  to be placed inside the blockage to open it up.

Walking program to open vessels around the blockage up.

Opening the artery above and below the blockage/narrowing and  joining  a bypass graft. This recreates a new vessel with a vein or prosthetic/plastic
