Vascular Therapy Pathways
Arterial Vascular Therapy
Arterial vascular therapy is treatment to the arteries when issues either arise or linger after testing and treatment. If you’re dealing with vascular issues related to the arteries, such as peripheral arterial disease, one of the following therapies may be recommended for you:
• Arterial diagnostic angiograms
• Peripheral arterial angioplasty and stenting
• Peripheral arterial atherectomy
Venous Vascular Therapy
Varicose veins are the primary complaint amongst venous vascular therapy patients, but a person’s veins can be the source for a number of other issues, too. Some of the treatments Ocean State Cardiovascular & Vein provides for venous vascular therapy patients include:
• Venous angiogram
• Acute DVT management with pharmaco-mechanical lysis
• IVC filter placement and retrievals
• Varicose veins management and interventions
Endovenous Laser Ablation
An endovenous laser ablation is an effective option for treating greater saphenous vein, small saphenous vein, and perforator reflux (leaky valves). This is an image-guided, minimally-invasive treatment that can significantly reduce the appearance of varicose veins.
Ambulatory (stab) phlebectomy is an effective outpatient procedure that permits treatment of bulging veins as a complementary procedure to the laser closure of the leaky vein. If you are experiencing leg pain (or “heaviness”) at the site of your varicose veins, a phlebectomy might be the solution for you.
This procedure is for the initial or subsequent treatment of spider veins or varicosities in the legs. The varicose blood vessels are treated via injection, and this injection coagulates the blood and narrows the blood vessel wall.
