BULGING VARICOSE VEINS (LEAKY VEINS)
Bulging Varicose veins are a medical problem. When veins bulge it means they are under pressure and there is something going on inside of the leg. An ultrasound is necessary and should be done in an accredited lab. Strict protocol must be followed for accurate results during the ultrasoud.
A leakage causes accumulation of fluid in the calf veins and they stretch, while a blockage won’t allow the blood to go to the heart and it accumulates in the lower leg.
ADVANCED VENOUS DISEASE
(SWELLING, SKIN DAMAGE AND ULCERS)
Caused by deep veins (Deep vein thrombosis – DVT) or blood clots. A fresh blood clot in a deep femoral vein DVT (acute) may break up and cause pulmonary embolism (clot breaking and going into the lungs), which makes this something we must immediately treat and anticoagulats with medicine and we may also go after it with thrombolysis.
After it is there chronically for a long time it becomes a scar blocking the vein causing post thrombotic syndrome, causing skin damange and ulcer. Treated with Balloon angioplasty of obstruction and stenting.
Veins that are diseased with previous blood clots tend to obstruct and scar down blockage. The treatment is to open them with angioplasty or stents.

The International Vein Congress (IVC) was created 17 years ago to educate professionals in the management of venous disease using these new devices. At the recent 12th Annual IVC held in South Beach we saw 700 registrants from 26 countries around the globe converge in Miami, eager to receive intensive education in the management of venous disorders. Because 3-4 days of intensive education no longer does the venous field justice, VeinGlobal was created for additional online education 365 days a year.
