If left untreated, poorly functioning veins can put an individual at risk of deep vein thrombosis.
Omaha, NE (PRWEB) December 20, 2013
Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute is announcing the publication of a new article outlining the connection between vein function and overall health. According to the Omaha based vein center, ignoring the impact of vein function on health leaves patients vulnerable to a number of complications. The center hopes the article will encourage the public to seek out vein disease treatment in Omaha to correct the issue.
According to Dr. Thomas Whittle, a leading provider of vein disease treatment in Omaha, poor vein function can cause serious complications. “If left untreated, poorly functioning veins can put an individual at risk of deep vein thrombosis, a type of blood clot associated with potentially fatal complications. Patients can protect themselves from this and improve their overall health by pursuing vein disease treatment in Omaha.”
Dr. Whittle also explains that poor vein function is associated with varicose and spider veins, leg and ankle pain and swelling, and, in advanced cases, ulceration on the ankles and legs.
The center encourages anyone suffering from poor vein function to seek out vein disease treatment in Omaha to correct the issue. More information on this topic and on other vein disease topics is available on the center’s website.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose and spider veins are quite common in the United States, with about half of all men and women being affected. Spider veins are usually smaller than varicose veins and range in color from reddish to purple. They also lie very close to the skin’s surface. On the other hand, varicose veins appear abundantly larger, rope-like, have a more bluish hue, and bulge out from the skin. Women tend to suffer from varicose veins more frequently than men, although both genders can be affected.
There are many treatment options available today for people who suffer from varicose veins. Modern medical and technological advances have birthed effective treatments that do not require time-consuming and dangerous surgery. These procedures include sclerotherapy, microphlebectomy, radiofrequency ablation, and endovenous laser treatment.
