Kihei, Maui, HI. Vein Clinics of Hawaii releases a new article in which they discuss a serious and widespread public health problem that most people don’t even know exists – deep vein thrombosis, or DVT. According to these Hawaii vein specialists, DVT affects as many as 900,000 Americans yearly, of whom 100,000 to 300,000 die from complications of the disease.
According to Dr. Randall S. Juleff, medical director of this vein practice on Maui and Kauai, “DVT is a disease that you are not likely to discover on your own, because it has so few overt symptoms. But it can be easily detected in a venous health screening that takes only about an hour and that is painless, non-invasive, and doesn’t even require you to go to a hospital. If the screening finds that you have DVT, there are numerous treatment methodologies that can be employed to minimize its effects or to eliminate the blood clots it causes entirely.”
These Maui vein treatment specialists hope that this article reaches a wide audience in the general public and helps them to realize the seriousness of DVT and the importance of getting a screening. To learn more about DVT or other types of vein disease and vein disease treatment, visit the clinic’s website.
Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are quite common afflictions in the United States, affecting up to 30 million people. While women tend to suffer from vein disease more frequently than men, both sexes can be afflicted. Spider veins are usually smaller, web-like veins that might have a tangled appearance, while varicose veins are usually larger, twisted, bluish veins that are raised on the skin.
There are several safe and effective treatment options for varicose veins and spider veins, including the Venefit™ procedure, microphlebectomy, and sclerotherapy. All procedures are minimally invasive, meaning they can be performed on an outpatient basis in the doctor’s office. They all help restore both the health and beauty of the legs with minimal discomfort and minimal downtime.
