Individuals who spend extended amount of time sitting or standing in the same position, such as during a long trip in a plane or car, have a greater risk of DVT.
Manhattan, NY (PRWEB) October 13, 2013
During the month of October the New York Vein Treatment Center will run a campaign on the risk factors associated with Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). According to the Manhattan-based vein center, an estimated 300,000 to 600,000 Americans are affected by DVT, condition during which blood clots form in the veins of the lower extremities. The center plans to provide information that will help individuals take steps to lower their DVT risk, resulting in a lower rate of its incidence.
According to Dr. Lev Khitin, a leading vein doctor at the New York Vein Treatment Center, lack of movement is a common risk factor for DVT. “Individuals who spend extended amount of time sitting or standing in the same position, such as during a long trip in a plane or car, have a greater risk of DVT. Wearing compression stockings can help to reduce this risk by encouraging proper circulation.”
The New York Vein Treatment Center will be utilizing social media to help distribute information about DVT risk factors. Interested individuals can learn more by visiting the center’s Facebook and Twitter pages.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.
Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of safe, effective, minimally invasive treatment modalities that provide excellent, most importantly permanent results with no side-effects or downtime. Some of these modalities are foam- sclerotherapy and cryo-sclero, radio-frequency ablation, micro-phlebectomy, endovenous LASER obliteration and many others.
