detection and treatment can stop and reverse deterioration of the legs.
knows that patients with varicose veins and spider veins go to vein doctors.
But, most patients and many doctors do not realize the following:
- Most varicose veins are hidden and cause slow deterioration of the legs:
Most vein patients (9 of 10) do not have visible, surface varicose veins and
spider veins. Most varicose veins are hidden. More patients should have earlier
and more thorough venous insufficiency ultrasound testing, i.e. an examination
of all five truncal veins, done standing and standardized.
- Easily treatable venous etiology: 'Definitive' treatment is always
best. A simple venous insufficiency ultrasound (US) will reliably reveal
venous valvular insufficiency. The following signs and symptoms often have an
easily treatable venous etiology:
- Usually vein treatment is "medically necessary", not "cosmetic
only": Most vein diagnostics and treatments are medically necessary and
are paid for by insurance and Medicare. 99% of MVC practice receipts are from
insurance and Medicare.
- The standard of care is changing: Venous valvular insufficiency
causes progressive deterioration of the legs. Given today's definitive,
painless, safe and effective office treatments(as opposed to the old 'vein
stripping', for example), it is no longer "conservative" to simply
ignore venous hypertension or address it with only palliative measures, i.e.
elevation, stockings, creams, wound care, diuretics, dopaminergics, antibiotics,
NSAIDs, minerals and other medications.
- More patients should be referred earlier: The thorough bilateral
venous insufficiency ultrasound of the deep veins and of all five truncal veins,
is performed while the patient is standing and with a standardized venous challenge.
This is the gold standard exam that patients deserve.
