March 25, 2017. Middletown, NJ. New Jersey Vein and Laser Center publish a new article that presents some potentially life-saving information to anyone who has deep vein thrombosis (DVT), or is at high risk for developing it. DVT occurs when blood clots form in the deep veins of the legs, which is problematic because it can cause cramps and pain, but it can become dangerous if the blood clots travel through the circulatory system to the brain (where they can cause a stroke) or to the lungs (where they can cause a pulmonary embolism).
According to these Monmouth County vein experts, one of the things that every DVT patient should do to protect themselves is to learn the symptoms of stroke and pulmonary embolism. In this article, these Jersey Shore vein doctors present the symptoms to be aware of, so that if they occur patients can seek immediate medical attention.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
With more than 30 million American adults suffering from varicose and spider veins, vein disease is a common issue. Varicose veins (large, twisting, blue or red veins that may stand out from the skin’s surface) and spider veins (smaller, web-like vein that appear on the surface of the skin) are an embarrassing and potentially painful issue. Vein disease strikes both genders, although women are more likely to experience this problem than men.
No matter a patient’s age or gender, there are a number of safe, minimally invasive, and virtually pain free treatment options available. Techniques such as microphlebectomy, radiofrequency ablation, and sclerotherapy help improve the legs’ health and aesthetics by eliminating or removing spider and varicose veins. Minimally invasive vein treatments are effective and do not expose patients to a high risk of scarring or a lengthy recovery period
