Venous Disease refers to conditions related to or caused by veins that become diseased or abnormal. This can either be acute of chronic.
The most common form of chronic venous disease is the development of varicose veins, which may lead to more serious conditions when left untreated. Treatment of varicose veins is done as a non-invasive procedure and has a high rate of success.
Deep Vein Thrombosis
The most common acute problem is Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) which occurs when a blood clot forms in a large vein. These clots usually develop in the lower leg, thigh or pelvis. This requires management with blood thinning medication called anti-coagulants.
