Treating Spider Veins With Sclerotherapy

Do you live with varicose veins, or spider veins?  Have you ever considered seeking treatment?  Metroview Vascular and Surgical performs sclerotherapy, along with other treatment options. The procedure involves a direct injection of a salt based solution into the vein, which irritates the vein’s lining, causing a clot, which will swell and then fade from view over time. Anybody who suffers from varicose veins or spider veins can consider the therapy, but it is a good idea to engage in an initial consultation with a physician in order to ensure that you are a good candidate. The treatment is as simple as injecting the location with the solution, and recovery time is relatively minimal, only several weeks before bruising and swelling disappears entirely. Mild discomfort, cramping, and general itching around the area are to be expected for a few days. Except for these minor side effects, individuals can expect a relatively painless recovery process that will not hinder their abilities to go about their days.

Please contact Metrovew Vascular today to discuss the options available to you for treating spider veins and varicose veins.

Peripheral Vascular Disease Diagnosis in Charlotte, North Carolina

Peripheral vascular disease, which is otherwise abbreviated as PVD, is a dangerous condition that describes the narrowing or the occlusion of arteries outside of the heart and brain due to plaque. Among the various risk factors for this disease are any elevated conditions of blood cholesterol or diabetes. Additionally, people who are overweight or obese may also be at risk for this disease. Peripheral vascular disease symptoms may depend vastly on the location and the extent of the blockage in the affected arteries.

The most commonly noticeable symptoms are pain in the calf, which typically occurs after walking, as well numbness in the extremities. If left untreated, this disease may result in sores and ulcers that will not heal, as well as the eventual need for amputation. If you find yourself suffering from any of the aforementioned symptoms, it is highly recommended to look into Peripheral Vascular Disease diagnosis and treatment.  Metroview Vascular and Surgical is here to serve Charlotte and Gastonia, North Carolina.

Diagnosing and Treating Aneurysms in Charlotte, NC

An aneurysm is classified as an abnormal enlargement of the arteries. If left untreated, an aneurysm can rupture and be fatal. Aneurysms oftentimes do not display symptoms, but when they do, they manifest in the form of blurred vision, drooping eyelids, dilated pupils, and weakness or numbness on one or both sides of the body. In order to look for an aneurysm, doctors will have the option to perform a variety of different tests. CT scans will often be the first performed to see if you have bleeding sections in your brain. Afterwards, you may need to have a cerebrospinal fluid test done, which is only performed depending on what can help narrow down the symptoms. Other tests can include having an MRI performed or a cerebral angiogram, which will help the doctor analyze the condition of your brain without the use of larger machinery.

At Metroview Vascular, we diagnose aneurysms and offer treatment options including open surgery, or stent-graft. These procedures are performed in the hospital.
