Vein Center in Wayne Discusses the Symptoms of Venous Insufficiency

August 28, 2020

spider and varicose vein treatment center

Our vein center in Wayne helps you identify venous insufficiency.

Our vascular surgeon and vein center in Wayne has offered quality care to people with spider veins, varicose veins, and venous diseases for years. Over time, we’ve come to realize that most people consult the vein center pretty late, once their vein disease has already progressed to an advanced stage. This article aims to help you identify the early signs and symptoms of venous insufficiency, a dangerous circulatory disorder that worsens over time, leading to severe venous diseases and complications.

Venous insufficiency is a chronic medical condition in which your vein valves collapse. In healthy veins, these vein valves act like control mechanisms that ensure one-way blood circulation to the heart, preventing blood from flowing backward due to gravity. When your vein valves collapse, blood flows backward due to gravity and accumulates in your leg veins. Continued blood accumulation in your leg veins leads to vascular dilation, eventually leading to spider veins, deep vein thrombosis, and other venous diseases.

Most people don’t even realize they have venous insufficiency until it has reached an advanced stage because the initial signs and symptoms of venous insufficiency can be misattributed to aging or exhaustion. That’s why most people consult our board-certified vascular surgeon once they have advanced venous diseases, such as varicose veins, leg ulcers, and deep vein thrombosis — issues that could be avoided with early diagnosis and treatment.

Dr. Sareh Rajee is the board-certified vascular surgeon at Vein Treatment Clinic, widely hailed as the best state-of-the-art vein center near Wayne, New Jersey. We encourage you to go through this article to determine if you have any of the signs and symptoms of venous insufficiency. If so, please consult our vein center near Wayne, located near the garden state parkway past the Ford dealership on route 46-E, to discuss your minimally invasive treatment options.

Are you wondering if you have venous insufficiency? Our vein center in Wayne discusses how you can identify venous diseases and venous insufficiency.

What are the initial signs and symptoms of venous insufficiency?

Venous insufficiency is a chronic circulatory disorder, i.e., it worsens over time. It’s one of the most under-diagnosed medical conditions because most people misattribute its signs and symptoms to aging or exhaustion. It doesn’t help that there’s a considerable lack of awareness about venous insufficiency, even though it’s a common condition that affects most people at least once in their lives.

The following are some of the signs and symptoms of venous insufficiency. Please go through them, and mark the signs and symptoms you can identify:

  • Leg pain.
  • Leg heaviness.
  • Swollen ankles and feet.
  • Throbbing leg veins.
  • General exhaustion.
  • Restless leg syndrome— you keep moving your legs restlessly.
  • Frequent leg cramps— you frequently experience sudden muscle spasms in your legs.
  • Spider veins— dense clusters of reddish blood vessels visible just under the skin’s surface.

Do you recognize any of the aforementioned signs and symptoms of venous insufficiency? These signs and symptoms can occur for various reasons, but they’re more likely caused by venous insufficiency if they worsen at the end of the day or after long periods of sitting or standing still. Basically, venous insufficiency signs and symptoms worsen when there’s significant blood accumulation in your leg veins.

What are the advanced venous diseases and complications caused by untreated venous insufficiency?

If you don’t identify the warning signs of venous insufficiency, you may eventually suffer from advanced complications and venous diseases. This is when most people consult a board-certified vascular surgeon for diagnosis and treatment.

The following are advanced complications and venous diseases:

  • Varicose veins— large blood vessels that protrude out of the skin’s surface in a twisted form.
  • Skin discoloration— the lack of blood circulation in your legs makes your skin appear pale and discolored.
  • Skin disease— you develop rust-colored and leathery patches on your skin’s surface due to the breakdown of blood cells.
  • Leg ulcers— you develop non-healing wounds on your skin’s surface because ineffective blood circulation prevents wounds from healing properly.
  • Deep vein thrombosis— the accumulated blood in your leg veins harden into blood clots.

How does a board-certified vascular surgeon diagnose venous insufficiency?

During your consultation with the board-certified vascular surgeon, she will examine your spider veins and look for other signs and venous insufficiency symptoms. Following the examination, the vascular surgeon will administer a vascular imaging test (Duplex Ultrasound) to visualize the blood flow in your leg veins, identify venous insufficiency.

What can I expect from a minimally invasive venous insufficiency treatment?

If you have venous insufficiency, our board-certified vascular surgeon will recommend minimally invasive venous insufficiency treatments, such as radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser ablation, or VenaSeal.

During these minimally invasive procedures, the vein doctor will use thermal energy, laser energy, or medical adhesives to collapse or seal the diseased vein’s walls. Once the diseased saphenous vein is sealed or collapsed, the accumulated blood will flow into healthier veins, restoring smooth blood circulation to the heart.

After the primary vein treatment, the vascular surgeon may also recommend sclerotherapy or ambulatory phlebectomy. These are minimally invasive cosmetic treatments used to remove the superficial varicose veins and spider veins left one your skin’s surface after the primary vein treatment.

Will I get insurance coverage for my minimally invasive treatment?

You can only get insurance coverage for medically necessary procedures, i.e., if you’re suffering from venous insufficiency. Radiofrequency ablation and endovenous laser ablation are eligible for insurance coverage because they’re medically necessary procedures to treat vein disease.
