New York Vein Treatment Center Discusses Vein Diseases vs. Arterial Diseases


July 2013: Manhattan: The New York Vein Treatment Center, serving Manhattan and surrounding areas, is educating the public about the differences between vein diseases and arterial diseases in a new article on their website. Dr. Lev Khitin of the New York Vein Treatment Center explains the differences between vein diseases and arterial diseases, including their diagnosis, symptoms, treatment and prophylactic.

Diseases of the vines are often a consequence of their inability to transport “used” deoxygenated blood from the extremities back to the heart. Pathological conditions affecting the arteries are commonly developed due to buildup of fatty deposit in arteries. This leads to reduced supply with “fresh” oxygenated blood. “Such process in the heart will cause a heart attack, in the brain it often results in a stroke, while atherosclerosis of the leg arteries can be complicated by trophic ulcers and even gangrene,” explains Dr. Lev Khitin, a leading vein doctor at the New York Vein Treatment Center.

The Manhattan-based vein center is a state-of-the-art facility dedicated to diagnosis, prophylaxis and treatment of vein diseases. The center is providing more information about these diseases through their Facebook and Twitter pages.

It is important to know that both vein and arterial diseases are more prevalent than most people suspect, that both can be serious and life-threatening, and that both can be difficult to diagnose and treat. Dr. Khitin encourages patients to learn more about both types of diseases to help make better choices for a healthier life.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options

Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.

Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of safe, effective, minimally invasive treatment modalities that provide excellent, most importantly permanent results with no side-effects or downtime. Some of these modalities are foam- sclerotherapy and cryo-sclero, radio-frequency ablation, micro-phlebectomy, endovenous LASER obliteration and many others.
