What is Deep Vein Disease?

Disorders of the deep venous system often include deep vein thrombosis and obstruction of the vein from scar tissue or compression. This includes conditions of DVT, May-Thurner syndrome and Non-thrombotic occlusions. Unfortunately, deep vein disease is commonly overlooked in less experienced vein clinics.

Deep Vein Disease Treatments Near You

Disorders of the deep venous system often include deep vein thrombosis and obstruction of the vein from scar tissue or compression. Unfortunately, this is a commonly overlooked problem in vein clinics due to the increased expertise needed. At Vein Specialist Centers, our vein doctors are double board-certified vascular surgeons with specialty training in both superficial and deep vein disease.

Common Signs of deep vein disease

Common signs of deep vein disease include unresolved leg swelling, a history of blood clots, and pelvic discomfort. Luckily for those suffering from deep vein disease, innovative deep vein thrombosis treatments are available. At Vein Specialist Centers, we have the expertise to help manage this serious condition.

Causes of Deep Vein Thrombosis

Age, prolonged periods of sitting, pregnancy, obesity, underlying health issues, blood disorders, and recent injury to a vein.

How Does a Doctor Diagnose Deep Vein Thrombosis?

A qualified vеіn dосtоr performs a physical examination and will ask you for a complete medical history, while taking note of your symptoms and the appearance of your legs. Your vein specialist will confirm any suspicions of DVT with an ultrasound.

Deep Vein Thrombosis Treatments

Treatments for deep vein thrombosis depend on the severity of the deep vein disease. The most common treatment is anticoagulants, or blood thinners.

There are also newer treatments for acute DVT that can be performed if done early. A minimally-invasive treatment that is gaining popularity is mechanical pharmacolysis or thrombolysis, which is the use of special catheters to inject drugs to dissolve the blood clot.

If there is compression or narrowing of the vein, then angioplasty or stenting of the diseased segment is preferred. This is performed in cases such as May-Thurner syndrome, non-thrombotic iliac vein occlusions (NIVL) and post-thrombotic syndrome (PTS)

If you think you are suffering from deep vein disease or deep vein thrombosis, we encourage you to schedule an appointment with one of our vein specialists in NJ and NY.
