South Bay Vascular Center and Vein Institute Offers New Help, Hope for Patients Born with Arteriovenous Malformation

Campbell, CA (PRWEB) June 21, 2013

The South Bay Vascular Center and Vein Institute, a leading vein center serving San Jose, California, is offering patients born with a rare vein disorder new help in dealing with their condition.

Arteriovenous malformation is a congenital vein disease – meaning that people who have it were born with it. Congenital abnormalities in the veins and arteries occur in around 1% of births. Arteriovenous malformation is one of the more serious types of congenital vein disorders. It occurs when there is an abnormal connection between arteries and veins, with no capillaries present between them. This can occur anywhere in the body, causing bleeding, pain, and strain on the heart.

Dr. Polly Kokinos, the lead vascular specialist at South Bay Vascular Center and Vein Institute, says that while patients may be born with arteriovenous malformation, they don’t have to live with it. A recent article published on the vein institute’s website describes the modern-day procedures that are now being used to detect and effectively treat congenital vein disease. Today’s therapies are non-surgical and minimally invasive, and patients are seeing excellent results.

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.
