Hunt Regional's Vascular Lab
Venous Disease Care in Greenville, Texas
Did you know that 40 million Americans suffer daily with painful, swollen legs as a result of venous disease? This condition is the result of faulty valves in the veins and is referred to as venous insufficiency.
In a healthy vein, there are one-way valves that allow the blood to move toward the heart, but not away from it. In a diseased vein, these valves do not work properly, and allow the blood to fall downward in between heartbeats.
This back and forth motion of blood leads to an increased venous blood pressure resulting in inflammation of the tissues around the vein. This is what causes varicose and spider veins to form. Left untreated, this inflammation only worsens over time and may lead to complications.
We can help identify vascular problems with expert precision.
