One of the most common vein diseases is deep vein thrombosis (DVT), which is when the blood clots in one of the deep veins within your legs. Some patients experience no symptoms, while others suffer with leg pain and/or swelling of the area.
Blood clots in the deep veins can be caused from:
- Little activity or movement, such as when you are on bed rest.
- Being involved in an accident
- Traveling for a long period of time
- Varicose veins
Common symptoms of DVT include:
- Swelling in the affected leg.
- Pain in your leg. (Cramping or soreness)
- Red or discolored skin on the leg.
- A feeling of warmth in the affected leg.
- Hardening of the vein.
Thrombolysis is a highly effective method of treatment for deep vein thrombosis. This process involves dissolving dangerous blood clots in clogged blood vessels to improve blood flow and decrease damage to organs and tissues. Varicose veins can be an indicator of DVT and may be treated with a radiofrequency venous ablation. The area around these veins may become very painful due to clogged, blocked, or narrowing blood vessels.
