In a healthy vein, blood is encouraged to move up the leg by a series of tiny, one-way valves. If these valves are damaged, backflow can occur, leading to venous insufficiency.
Plainview, NY (PRWEB) August 30, 2013
Advanced Vein Care Solutions is launching a new public health campaign to educate the public about venous insufficiency. This treatable condition is experienced by millions of American men and women, says the Plainview, NY based vein center. The center hopes the information it provides can help patients make informed decisions to help prevent and treat this form of vein disease.
Dr. Andrew Rochman, a leading vein doctor at Advanced Vein Care Solutions, explains that venous insufficiency occurs when a vein is unable to efficiently transport blood back to the heart. “In a healthy vein, blood is encouraged to move up the leg by a series of tiny, one-way valves. If these valves are damaged, backflow can occur, leading to venous insufficiency. If left untreated, symptoms including varicose veins and leg ulcerations can result.”
The vein center is relying on social media to help spread information and education about this important topic. Throughout the month of September they will be providing information on venous insufficiency through their Facebook and Twitter pages. All members of the public are encouraged to learn more about this potentially serious condition.

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 effective, minimally invasive treatments that produce optimal results with few side-effects or downtime. These treatments include sclerotherapy, radio frequency ablation, phlebectomy, and endovenous laser ablation.
