Traveling and sitting for long periods can increase your risk of DVT, but there are steps you can take to reduce your risk.
New York, New York (PRWEB) December 18, 2013
The New York Vein Treatment Center is announcing a new article on their website to educate the public about strategies for preventing deep vein thrombosis (DVT), or blood clots, while traveling. DVT is a potentially deadly complication of untreated vein disease, the New York based vein center says, but there are steps people can take to reduce their risk.
Dr. Lev Khitin, a leading NYC vein specialist, “A vascular evaluation for DVT is a good first step to reducing your risk. Venous duplex ultrasound is a quick, safe, non-invasive and reliable test performed in the office and interpreted right away. Not only it can identify the blood clots currently present in the veins, but also allows evaluate risk factors for their appearance in the future.” If needed, modern DVT treatment is effective and safe, says Dr. Khitin, and requires no downtime and no hospital visit.
Sitting for extended periods of time can increase the risk of DVT, so while traveling, Dr. Khitin recommends moving around periodically to stretch the legs and to facilitate blood return to the heart. The New York Vein Treatment Center hopes that by providing this information on their website, the public will be encouraged to have a DVT risk assessment and to take steps to reduce their risk of this potentially serious condition while traveling.
The NYC vein specialists at the New York Vein Treatment Center are available to answer questions from anyone interested in learning more about deep vein thrombosis and strategies to reduce their risk. Individuals interested in learning more about this topic can find the article on their website, http://www.veinstreatment.com.

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 and, 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.
