...clots are dangerous because they can break free and proceed to the lungs...
Miami, FL. (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
March is Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) awareness month, and the Miami Vein Center is entering the effort to reduce the number of debilitating illnesses and deaths resulting from this vein disorder.
DVT is a condition in which a blood clot forms deep in a leg vein. These clots are dangerous because they can break free and proceed to the lungs, where they can cause a pulmonary embolism. This condition can be fatal, so it is of the utmost importance to have it detected and cared for immediately.
The Miami Vein Center, a leading vein treatment facility in Miami, Florida, is endeavoring to reach out to the public and direct attention to this serious vein problem. Directing this initiative is Dr. Jose Almeida, a highly-regarded DVT specialist at the center. Dr. Almeida will utilize a two-pronged approach to promote an understanding of the dire risks posed by deep vein thrombosis. First, he will utilize Twitter and Facebook to get the word out about this under-reported yet deadly condition. At the same time, he will disseminate an important video, highlighting the risk factors as well as the signs and symptoms of DVT.
Everyone should find out about the physical indicators and warning signs of this vein complication and warn others as well. Together we can beat DVT.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins affect millions of adults in the U.S. today. These visible, bulging, twisted veins may only cause cosmetic concerns. In some cases, however, varicose veins may indicate the presence of a more serious condition, or cause unwanted symptoms including leg pain.
The good news is that varicose veins can be removed quickly, with minimal discomfort, in a doctor’s office. There is no need for hospitalization and the recovery time is measured in minutes, not weeks. Vein specialists at the Miami Vein Center use a new clinically-proven technology called endovenous therapy. This minimally invasive vein treatment eliminates varicose veins and is performed on an outpatient basis. Most patients are able to return to normal activities the very next day. Additional varicose vein treatment options include sclerotherapy, phlebectomy, and radiofrequency closure.
