Identification And Management

Venous disease can be as harmless as varicose veins or pose more life-threatening problems. Roughly 2 million cases are diagnosed annually in the United States, and nearly 600,000 Americans are diagnosed with pulmonary embolism (PE) in which clot travels from its point of origin to the lungs.

Venous disease is a common cause of chronic pain and swelling of an extremity. The problems are caused by many different disorders, but the most common involve a condition called Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), is another possible cause. This condition involves increased pressure in the veins due to poorly functioning valves.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot which forms in the venous system. This is a dangerous condition which often strikes people when they’re most vulnerable.
