Siragusa Vein and Vascular Launches New Health Campaign via Social Media to Educate Public About the Causes of Varicose Veins
Date:10/20/2013

Nashville, TN (PRWEB) October 20, 2013

The Siragusa Vein and Vascular Center in Nashville, TN has published a new article describing the causes of varicose veins. Varicose veins can result in painful, swollen legs and affect mobility, the Nashville, TN vein center says. If left untreated, varicose veins can cause serious complications, prompting the center to better educate the public about when to seek medical care.

Dr. Tif Siragusa, MD, Director of Siragusa Vein and Vascular notes that “Varicose veins and spider veins result due to venous disease and must be treated by a trained varicose vein specialist or a spider vein specialist. When the symptoms are ignored, the condition can worsen resulting in serious complications.”

Valves inside the vein that allow unidimensional blood flow weaken and lose their ability to function properly causing backflow and stagnation of blood in the veins. This results in swelling and pain in the legs. The complications that can arise from untreated varicose veins and spider veins are skin ulcers, swelling, pain, and blood clots or deep vein thrombosis. If the blood clots that form in the legs break free, they can travel along with the circulating blood in the body and cause serious consequences.

At Siragusa Vein and Vascular, Dr. Siragusa and his dedicated medical team provide effective minimally invasive treatment options. In October, the staff at Siragusa Vein and Vascular will be using social media including Facebook and Twitter to encourage the public to take precautions and get timely treatment for varicose veins and spider veins.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options

Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.

Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of effective, minimally invasive treatments that produce optimal results with few side-effects or downtime. These treatments include sclerotherapy, radio frequency ablation, phlebectomy, and endovenous laser ablation.
