Consequences of Vein Disease

Consequences of Vein Disease

The vein specialists at Palm Vein Center often describe conditions like spider veins or varicose veins as “permissive” pathologies. Meaning, these chronic venous diseases are often overlooked or dismissed by patients if symptoms are not particularly bothersome. Unfortunately, this attitude can have serious, life-threatening consequences. When left untreated, patients with progressive vein diseases may experience:

Venous ulcerations
Edema
Hemorrhaging
Increased pain in the legs and feet
Inflamed veins
Skin discoloration
Blood clots
Stroke

To prevent these issues from transpiring, the medical team at Palm Vein Center educates patients about their venous disease and recommends conservative therapies in addition to other treatment options to minimize progression.
