Kihei, Maui, HI. Vein Clinics of Hawaii is releasing a new article in which they talk about a symptom that patients often complain of – swollen legs and ankles. According to these Hawaii vein specialists, many people ignore this swelling because they think it’s just the result of a sprain or injury. But if the swelling persists and becomes chronic, it could be an indication of vein disease that requires treatment.
According to Dr. Randall S. Juleff, medical director of a top vein treatment center in Hawaii, “chronic swelling of the legs and ankles is very possibly due to chronic venous insufficiency or CVI, a vein disease that is the most common cause of varicose veins. But CVI can also cause this kind of swelling, and unfortunately it doesn’t stop there, and can quickly escalate to pain and weakness so profound that patients become effectively disabled. Fortunately, a fast, painless venous health screening can tell whether you have CVI or not, and if you do, it can be eliminated just as quickly and painlessly.”

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.
