New York, New York (PRWEB) August 21, 2013
Cardiovascular Associates is launching a new campaign 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 August 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 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.
