What you don’t know about vein disease could hurt you.
Damaged veins can take many forms, from small surface veins to large grape-like clusters. No matter what size or shape, these veins are signs of vein disease. And if left untreated, they could lead to more serious complications, such as ulcerations, blood clots, or spontaneous venous hemorrhage. However, now there are innovative and effective treatments to eliminate unhealthy veins. Fortunately, once the damaged veins are treated, your body will re-route blood flow into stronger, healthier veins, reducing vein problems and improving your circulation. Vein disorders are not always visible so diagnostic ultrasound scanning is an important tool in determining the cause and severity of the disease.
