Vein clinics in Chicago, and cities across the U.S., treat a large number of patients each year who have allowed their symptoms of vein disease go on for far too long. Some of these patients have tried to solve their painful varicose veins problem by using conservative treatment methods such as exercise and compression stockings. The problem remains that once these unhealthy veins form, they won’t go away on their own or with conservative treatment.
While early symptoms of vein disease, such as leg pain and spider veins, may seem minor the truth is they aren’t. Left untreated, these symptoms can worsen and lead to serious medical complications such as:
Deep Vein Thrombosis
– A blood clot that forms in veins below the muscles of the thigh and calf
– Abnormal fluid build-up in legs and feet, which can lead to bacterial infection of the skin.
– Sudden blockage of a major artery in the lung, usually by a blood clot.
Risk of Infection or Ulceration
– A result of blood leaking into the tissue of the skin, causing swelling and damage to the tissue and resulting in a wound.
Early treatment to eliminate diseased varicose veins can aid in preventing these conditions from occurring or progressing to a more serious life or limb threatening condition.
Remember, vein disease will never “just go away” on its own, it is a progressive disease that will only get worse if left untreated.
