Venous Insufficiency in Dallas, TX

Vanguard Vascular & Vein treats venous insufficiency for the residents of Garland, Rowlett, and the Greater Dallas area.

Your physician may talk to you about venous insufficiency, also known as “chronic venous insufficiency” or “chronic venous stasis.” Venous insufficiency describes an abnormality or problem with the flow of blood from your legs back to your heart. For your circulatory system to work properly, your blood needs to flow in one direction. Inside your veins are tiny valves that open and close to keep the blood flowing in the right direction. When the valves do not close properly or close only partially, blood flows backward into the veins of your lower legs.

How Do I Know If I Have Venous Insufficiency?

The backward flow of blood causes the lower veins to fill with blood and swell. The walls of the veins weaken, and fluid leaks into the surrounding tissue. You may notice darkened areas of skin that are red or purple. Spider veins and varicose veins are also indications of venous insufficiency, as well as venous ulcers and leg ulcers.

How Can Vanguard Vascular & Vein Help Me with Venous Insufficiency?

As vascular care specialists, Vanguard Vascular & Vein offers several screenings that help identify venous insufficiency in the early stages. In some cases, we are able to locate problems in the earliest stages. If your test results indicate that you have venous insufficiency, your physician works with you to develop an individualized treatment plan. The staff of Vanguard Vascular & Vein understands how overwhelmed you are after receiving a diagnosis of venous insufficiency. Our entire staff supports and guides you through the entire treatment process.
