Comprehensive Venous Disease Management

Identification And Management

Venous disease can be as harmless as varicose veins or pose more life-threatening problems.

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 clotting in the vein (DVT) , and increased pressure in the veins due to poorly functioning valves, or chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).

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.

Did You Know . . .

Roughly 2 million cases are diagnosed annually in the U.S., and nearly 600,000 Americans are diagnosed with pulmonary embolism (PE) in which clot travels from its point of origin to the lungs.

Vascular Surgeons Are Experts In Venous Problems

At Michigan Vascular Center we can diagnose and treat the entire specturm of venous problems.

  • Telangiectasias (spider veins)
  • Chronic venous insufficiency (swelling, skin changes and/or ulceration)
  • Varicose veins (a common manifestation of chronic venous insufficiency)
  • Deep venous thrombosis (advanced techniques upon early detection can prevent future chronic problems)
  • IVC Filters for pulmonary embolism (Filters placed using a catheter to prevent blood clots from reaching the lungs)
