Vein problems are often overlooked or ignored, leading to dangerous complications.
New York. New York (PRWEB) November 07, 2013
November 7th, 2013. New York. New York Cardiovascular Associates is launching a new campaign designed to educate the public about the dangers of vein problems. According to the New York based vein center, vein problems are often overlooked or ignored, leading to dangerous complications. The center hopes to encourage the public to take steps to address vein problems without delay.
According to a New York Cardiovascular Associates representative, even minor vein problems can cause serious complications if ignored. “Varicose veins are often assumed to be a cosmetic problem, but in actuality they can lead to a higher risk of blood clots and, if left untreated, can lead to ulcerations and permanent skin changes.” The center also cites deep vein thrombosis, a type of blood clot that may lead to a potentially fatal pulmonary embolism, as a dangerous form of vein disease.
The vein center is spending the month of November spreading the word about the dangers of vein problems. Interested readers can learn more by visiting the center’s social media outlets, including their Facebook and Twitter pages.

Varicose veins are large, bulging, sometimes twisted veins that are usually bluish in color. Spider veins are smaller, reddish veins that may appear tangled or similar to a spider’s web. Both men and women can have vein problems, but women are more likely to experience them.
Modern vein treatment options are effective, safe, and accessible to everyone.
