Society of Interventional Radiology: Time to rethink varicose veins
Date:2/6/2013

lar schedule within a short period of time. Health care professionals are encouraged to download an electronic toolkit, which includes an e-flyer, banner ads and content for physician websites. In addition to SIR, "Rethink Varicose Veins" participants include the American College of Phlebology, American Podiatric Medical Association, American Venous Forum, Society for Vascular Medicine, Society for Vascular Surgery and the Society for Vascular Ultrasound.

As vascular specialists, interventional radiologists treat varicose veins using imaging guidance to perform vein ablation via a thin catheter inserted into the vein where they apply radiofrequency energy heat to the damaged vein and seal it closed. After closing, the twisted veins shrink and improve in appearance and other healthy veins take over to carry blood from the leg. Individuals are often able to immediately return to normal activity with little or no pain.

SIR has a long history of promoting vein health. Throughout the year and especially during March's Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Awareness Month, SIR alerts the public on the risk factors for DVT, which if left untreated, can lead to pulmonary embolism (when the clot travels to the lungs) or post-thrombotic syndrome, which may result in permanent damage to leg veins. SIR also runs Legs For Life, an ongoing public education/community wellness program that enables people to locate screening sites and learn about the risks for venous disease and peripheral arterial disease. As pioneers in venous disease research, interventional radiologists are also at the forefront of the ATTRACT (Acute Venous Thrombosis: Thrombus Removal with Adjunctive Catheter-Directed Thrombolysis) Study: an NIH-sponsored, first U.S.-based multicenter randomized trial of a catheter-based treatment for deep vein thrombosis (a dangerous blood clot deep within a leg vein).
