Diagnosis & Treatment
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
With thrombosis, a blood clot (thrombus) blocks a blood vessel, causing only a little blood to flow through the vessel. Therefore, you must consult your doctor in case of any suspicion of a deep vein thrombosis.
Doctor Visit is Mandatory!
Venous Inflammation (Phlebitis)The inflammation occurs often in connection with varicose veins in the veins of the legs, although the veins of the arms and, rarely, the veins of the face and neck can also be affected. As a rule, phlebitis is restricted locally and can sometimes be very painful. The affected segment of the vein is visible as a red, warm and often swollen area on the skin. Inflammation caused by bacteria may cause fever
Veins in our legs carry blood back to our hearts. They have one-way valves that keep bleed from flowing backwards. If you have venous disease, the valves won’t work as they should, and some blood may go back down the legs. If veins cannot operate effectively, blood will pool in the legs, and various forms of venous disease can develop.
