Is there a link between DVT and Vein Disease?

It is not commonly understood that DVT can lead to vein disease. Since DVT is one of the leading causes of death, it is important to know the link between DVT and vein disease.

DVT and how it relates

If you have a history of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) then the superficial veins in your legs are at risk of becoming diseased. Deep Vein Thrombosis is a blood clot located in the deep veins of the leg. Veins in good condition assist healthy blood to flow up from the leg to the heart by the squeezing of the muscles surrounding the deep veins. If this fails to happen correctly a blood clot can form. DVT is a serious condition that causes blood clots to break off and travel through the bloodstream. If these clots reach the brain, a stroke occurs. Although DVT occurs in the deep veins, those with DVT are more likely to have weakened and damaged superficial veins due to vein disease and would benefit from consulting with a vein specialist.

Treating vein disease

Whoever has a history of developing DVT needs to address any vein disease. A physician can perform a vein screening to determine if you have vein disease, and asses your risk of developing deep vein thrombosis. Risks of vein disease include lack of movement, frequently standing for extended periods of time, pregnancy and carrying excess weight.

You can lower risk factors in your everyday life by maintaining a nutritional diet, a healthy weight, not smoking cigarettes and staying active. Vein disease is treatable through minimally invasive procedures. Make an appointment with Alpha Vein Clinic today and let Dr Sassan Kaveh perform a screening to assess your vein concerns.
