Vein screenings are an effective way to detect potentially dangerous vein problems, including the blood clot known as deep vein thrombosis.
New York, NY (PRWEB) September 29, 2013
New York Cardiovascular Associates is launching a new social media campaign that aims to educate the public about what to expect during a vein screening. The New York City-based vein center stresses the importance of regular vein screenings, an effective method for detecting vein disease before it reaches advanced stages. The center hopes the information it provides will make the public more comfortable with the idea of undergoing a vein screening.
According to a New York Cardiovascular Associates representative, vein screenings are an effective way to detect potentially dangerous vein problems, including the blood clot known as deep vein thrombosis. “If left undetected and untreated, deep vein thrombosis has the potential to become a serious pulmonary embolism. A vein screening can detect this problem before the clot reaches an advanced stage, allowing for prompt treatment and a smaller chance of complications.”
The center will be providing information on what to expect during a vein screening through their social media outlets. Interested individuals can learn more by visiting the center’s Facebook and Twitter pages. This campaign will run throughout the month of September.

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.
