Venous Thrombosis

Venous Thrombosis

Venous Thrombosis occur when the blood coagulates in the vein and forms a solid clot that blocks the venous circulation. This blockage causes the leg to swell suddenly along with severe pain and redness of the lower extremity. Pulmonary embolism is an adverse outcome. The Deep Vein Thrombosis (known as DVT) is most alarming and requires emergency medical treatment. Diagnosis is established via Duplex Ultrasound (Venous Echo-Doppler). Treatment is based on Anticoagulant drugs. Responsible factors should be identified and addressed. The dose and duration of therapy are essentials to avoid complications such as recurrence and long term post-thrombotic syndrome.

Medical treatment

Medications (tablets or pills) strengthen the wall of the superficial veins and allow a better venous contraction, thus improving the upward movement of the blood in the legs.

Laser Treatment

The Vascular Laser is a revolutionary technique aimed at treating the spider veins in a more rapid way and to give faster results when faced with a truly esthetic demand.


Sclerotherapy or “Liquid sclerotherapy” is the most common practice for the treatment of spider veins. It is the injection of a special product in the small veins to close them.

Endovenous Saphenous Ablation Procedures

These revolutionary techniques have completely changed the surgical approach of varicose veins. They have become a true alternative to surgery.
