Vascular Screening at Our State-Of-The-Art Vein Treatment Center is a Quick and Accurate Way To Determine If You Have Developed a Vein or Arterial Disease
Vascular screening is recommended by our vein experts at our vein treatment center in Spring Hill, Florida because discovering and treating any vein or arterial disorder as early as possible can prevent you from developing chronic leg pain, unsightly spider veins, varicose veins, potentially deadly blood clots and the possibility of limb loss.
Why is Vascular Screening Necessary?
Over one hundred million Americans are suffering from some kind of vein or arterial disorder. What is alarming, is that many of these people do not know that endovascular disorders do not go away on their own, and they only get worse with time.
It is important to realize that vein and arterial disorders cause serious circulation problems that eventually cause leg pain, leg swelling and leg ulcers. Another thing that people are not aware of is that, if vein and arterial diseases are left untreated, they can cause irreversible damage to their health, and in more severe cases, can even cause death.
Who Should Get A Vascular Screening?
If you are noticing the development of varicose veins or spider veins on your legs, painful veins in legs, leg swelling (especially sore swollen calves), discoloration of the skin around your ankles or if you have a family history of vein disease, it is a good idea to get a vein screening because the sooner you are diagnosed and treated, the better for your health.
The danger lies in the fact that some vascular and arterial diseases are not immediately noticeable, such as Venous Insufficiency, Peripheral Arterial Disease and Aortic Aneurysms, however they can be especially dangerous to your overall health and can even cause sudden death.
You may not even know that you are starting to develop blocked leg arteries or veins, for example, and at the onset, your legs probably look great and show no signs of any problems on the surface. But within your vascular system, some arteries or veins may be experiencing tremendous stress and starting to stretch, causing silent irreparable damage. By the time you start to see and feel the symptoms, such as pain, swelling and varicose veins so much damage has already happened beneath the skin’s surface.
If you have already started to develop varicose veins or spider veins, and if you’re already experiencing swollen legs, these warning signs mean that venous disease is already progressing in your circulatory system and you should make an appointment for a vascular screening immediately because, this way, the type of vein therapy that you need can be quickly determined and performed.
Screening is Performed Through Vascular Ultrasound
At The Vein and Vascular Institute of Spring Hill, a quick, painless, and accurate vascular ultrasound helps vein specialists see what exactly is happening within your arteries and veins. With this simple screening, you could catch your circulatory problems early and prevent irreparable vein damage, future health problems including limb loss, and even death.
Are Yearly Screenings Needed?
We recommend yearly screenings for people who are smokers, have diabetes, are overweight, have high blood pressure and have a family history of vascular or arterial disease. We also recommend yearly screenings for everyone over the age of 50. In our extensive experience of diagnosing and treating vascular and arterial diseases we have seen how important early diagnosis is.
