Factors & Consequences

Factors & Consequences


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 occurring, 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.

Every patient that walks through our practice doors receives a thorough and comprehensive patient evaluation, which typically includes reviewing health history and symptoms as well as a physical examination. Following the evaluation, patients receive recommendations for various treatment options that may prevent some of the above-mentioned health consequences.
