Varicose Veins - How Best It Can Diagnosed?

MBBS, Diploma in Medical Radio Diagnosis (DMRD), MD

Varicose Veins - How Best It Can Diagnosed?

Blood flows through the tubes called as blood vessels. There are two networks of blood vessels – the arteries and the veins. The arteries carry pure or oxygenated blood from the heart to the various parts of the body. The veins, on the other hand, collect impure blood from all over the body and reach it to the heart. Blood flow in the veins is controlled via valves, which ensure blood does not flow in the reverse direction (against its desired direction of flow). The veins in the legs, which are farther from the heart, are quite thick and exert extra pressure to pump blood into the heart. They need to transport blood against gravity and so in people who are prone to stand for long hours, they can become thicker, swollen, twisted, and engorged. In severe cases, there could even lead to bleeding.

Some common causes for varicose veins are:

  1. Damaged valves which are not able to control the flow of blood in the required direction.
  2. Veins with a thin wall that are unable to control blood flow.

Risk factors: Though these are the suspected causes, there are specific risk factors which aggravate the condition of varicose veins.

  1. Family history
  2. Smoking
  3. Occupations which require prolonged standing (construction jobs, painters, etc.)
  4. Pregnancy
  5. Obesity
  6. Age, which reduces the elasticity of the veins
  7. Surgery in the leg, which could have hampered the values or veins

There are quite a few symptoms of varicose veins. These are quite distinct and present as:

  1. Swollen, ropy leg veins which can be blue
  2. Pain, especially with prolonged standing
  3. Tenderness on touching the veins
  4. Itching and heaviness along the veins
  5. Skin changes like scaling and dryness
  6. Night cramps around the area
  7. Susceptibility to bleed from these veins

While varicose veins are easy to diagnose given their distinct clinical presentation, some additional testing can involve the following:

  1. Doppler ultrasound
  2. Scanning
  3. MRI

As said, prevention is better than cure; here are some preventive measures that can be really helpful:

  1. Elevate legs as much as possible. When working, take short breaks to reduce stagnation and promote blood circulation
  2. Quit smoking
  3. Avoiding alcohol, as it causes venous dilation
  4. Weight management
  5. Avoid tight clothing and sitting with cross-legs for prolonged periods as they put a lot of pressure on the veins and valves
  6. Follow a regular exercise regimen to improve blood flow in the legs, like walking or running

Starting from the least invasive to the most, this condition can be treated by:

  1. Compression stocking (Ted hose or Jobst stocking) which improves circulation and reducing pain
  2. Surgical options include sclerotherapy, laser treatment, and stripping off the vein. These are done in very severe cases, but quite rare.

Peripheral Artery Disease - What Puts You At Risk?

Peripheral Artery Disease - What Puts You At Risk?

The circulatory system involving blood vessels and valves is quite an intricate networking system. Blood flow is maintained in separate channels controlled by valves. The vessels distant from the heart are known as peripheral arteries (and veins). Due to fatty deposits, the blood vessels narrow, and therefore their blood-carrying capacity reduces. This leads to reduced blood supply to the legs. The blood carries essential nutrients, and when the legs do not receive it, their function is affected. Read on to know more about this condition.

Peripheral artery disease: As noted above, peripheral artery disease or peripheral vascular disease is when the peripheral organs do not receive adequate blood supply. This could be either due to vascular structural abnormalities or more commonly due to atherosclerosis.

Symptoms: PVD or PAD is a chronic disease, and there are no immediate symptoms. The onset happens over a period of time, and symptoms include:

  1. Claudication (pain in the legs when walking)
  2. Leg cramping with muscle pain
  3. Cold extremities
  4. Shiny legs
  5. Reduced pulsation in the lower extremities
  6. Hair loss from the hands and feet
  7. Delayed healing of wounds in the lower extremities
  8. When it gets severe, there could even be pain at rest and it can disrupt sleep.

Risk factors:

  1. People with atherosclerosis
  2. Age over 70 years
  3. Obesity
  4. Male
  5. Smoking
  6. History of diabetes, hypertension, heart disease
  7. Family history

Complications: PAD reduces blood supply to the distant organs. Therefore, the limbs can have ischemia and also undergo death. It is common for sores to not heal due to the poor blood supply. When this condition continues for a prolonged period, then portions of the extremities could become dead due to lack of blood supply. This could also affect the brain and heart, causing stroke and heart attacks.

Treatment: Peripheral artery disease can be treated by the following measures:

  1. Manage symptoms with pain killers
  2. Reduce cholesterol
  3. Reduce blood pressure
  4. Control blood sugar levels
  5. Prevent blood clots
  6. Manage weight (diet and lifestyle changes)
  7. Angioplasty is a process where the blood vessel is kept open to ensure blood flow is adequate. A stent may also be placed in it to prevent it from closing again.
  8. If there is a clot blocking the blood flow in a particular vessel, an agent may be injected which can destroy the clot and open up the artery

Prevention:

  1. Stop smoking
  2. Exercise regularly
  3. Eat a healthy diet including fresh fruits and vegetables, reduce cholesterol
  4. Foot care (especially if diabetic) including wearing socks, cutting nails, foot care with a doctor, attending to calluses and bunions.

Interventional Radiology - How It Can Help In Cancer Treatment?

Interventional Radiology - How It Can Help In Cancer Treatment?

With cancer on the rise, there is a constant search for ways to treat it without having to resort to surgery. One such discovery is interventional radiology (IR). This is a sub-specialty of radiology where minimally invasive techniques are used to diagnose and treat diseases in many organs.

Interventional radiology (IR) is used to:

  1. Manage pain and complications
  2. Perform biopsies
  3. Overall symptom management
  4. Manage metastatic disease

Features:

  1. Image-guided treatment
  2. Minimally invasive, so less pain and easy recovery
  3. Improved accuracy compared to an open surgical procedure

IR Procedures: Some of the common IR procedures performed to help manage cancer are listed below with brief descriptions.

  1. Ablation: Tumor ablation is a minimally invasive procedure that uses extremes of temperature. This procedure can be used to manage symptoms and to treat the tumor. Radiofrequency waves are commonly used and the target organs are lungs, liver, and spine.
  2. Chemoembolization: A minimally invasive approach, especially for deep-seated cancers such as liver. This involves delivering the chemotherapy directly into the artery which is feeding the cancer. The chemotherapy is also combined with blocking agents known as emboli, which improves the success rate of the attack on the cancer cells.
  3. Angiography: This procedure involves mapping the blood vessels. This can help identify abnormal enlargement or narrowing of vessels and blockages. This is done by injecting a dye into the blood vessels, which can then be imaged or viewed through an X-ray scanner.
  4. Biopsies: Thin needles are inserted into the affected organ to remove portions of tissue. This can help in confirming diagnosis, and in cases of very small lesions, even complete removal is possible.
  5. Pain management: Cancer is notorious for causing bone and joint pains as the growing tumor presses on the surrounding tissues. Where routine pain killers do not work, injections into the joint space are required. IR helps in this area by directing the injections into the appropriate spaces.
  6. Catheter placement: Where there is need for constant draining of fluids from cancers, IR is used for appropriate placement of catheters.
  7. Port placement: In patients who need to be given chemotherapy for prolonged periods, ports are placed which act as injection sites without the need for multiple pricks.

What can the patient expect?

  1. These are done as outpatient procedures, often in the morning
  2. Do not eat or drink in the morning
  3. Take your prescription medications with water alone
  4. Arrange for transport so you can return home as driving is not allowed
  5. Confirm any other specific instructions or advice with the lab performing this procedure.

The role of IR in managing cancer is only set to expand in the coming years. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Flu Shots - Can There Be Side Effects Of Them?

Flu Shots - Can There Be Side Effects Of Them?

Flu is caused by a virus known as influenza and is a common respiratory disease. It is typically caused from the month of October to May. Some of the common symptoms include fatigue, runny nose, fever, cough, muscle ache, sore throat, body ache, etc. 

The flu vaccination helps to protect from influenza. The effect generally lasts for a year. It is recommended that an individual takes this vaccination once in a year since the strain of the virus keeps changing every year. Flu vaccine comprises of an egg-based technology.

Who Can catch flu?
Anyone can get a flu vaccination. Children above the age of 6 months or more are eligible to get a flu vaccination. In addition, the person who has a severe outbreak of allergic reaction due to the flu vaccination should also stay away from this. 

Pregnant women can also get this vaccination without any worry about the baby. They not only safeguard the mother, but protect the child from influenza too. Adults who are more than 65 years old can take this vaccination without worrying. Patients with an acute allergy should consult their doctors before taking a flu shot.

Are there any side effects?
Although most people do not feel a thing after the flu shot, some might experience mild symptoms, such as redness of the area where the vaccine has been injected, mild body aches, soreness, redness and fever. Other serious side effects include allergic reaction resulting in soreness and very high fever. A doctor or healthcare personnel should be immediately contacted in such an instance. 

Can flu shot cause flu?
This is totally a myth. A flu vaccine doesn’t result in the flu. The virus content of the flu vaccine doesn’t contain any live virus that can potentially trigger an outbreak of flu in the body. They are noninfectious in every sense of the word. It takes a couple of weeks for the flu vaccine to build immunity in the body. A person might get affected during this time if he comes in contact with an infected person.

Confusing flu with similar symptoms:
Common symptoms of flu such as nausea, vomiting, sneezing, body ache and fever can be symptoms of an entirely different disease such as diarrhoea. Until the tests are conducted and the doctor gives an assured verdict of flu, it is unwise to take a flu vaccination based on gut feel and mere speculation. 

When is an ideal time to take flu vaccine?
There is no right or wrong time of taking a flu shot. It is seriously infectious and can catch hold of a person at any time. The right time to take a flu shot is now. It is readily available over the counter and can be injected at any time of the year. Consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

Diabetes & Hypertension - 7 Ways You Can Prevent Yourself!

Hypertension or High Blood Pressure can trigger as well as worsen complications related to diabetes. Most people suffering from diabetes tend to develop hypertension later in their lives. Diabetes tends to increase one’s blood pressure, making him/her even more vulnerable to other heart diseases and cardio-vascular disorders. Diabetes often leads to a condition known as atherosclerosis, which is the hardening of the arteries. A combination of diabetes and hypertension drastically increases the risk of suffering from a heart disease. The risks of kidney diseases and retinopathy (damage to the tiny blood vessels present in the retina) also go up, resulting in blindness. With age, chronic hypertension can also result in numerous cognitive disorders such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease (degenerative mental disorder).

How to prevent Diabetes and Hypertension?
1. Walking for about 40 minutes each day or engaging in any type of aerobic exercise can better one’s heart health. Chalk out an exercise plan upon consulting the doctor

2. Limit drinking and abstain from smoking
3. Go for regular kidney check-ups
4. Eat food rich in fiber such as vegetables, fruits, breads or whole grain cereals
5. Examine blood pressure as well as blood sugar levels regularly at home
6. Practice relaxation techniques such as meditation or yoga to cut down on stress level; as stress is one of the major contributors to diabetes and the subsequent hypertension
7. Shed off your extra pounds as blood pressure escalates with weight

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a General Physician.

Sleeping Habits - 7 Things That Can Help You Improve It!

Sleeping Habits - 7 Things That Can Help You Improve It!

We all look forward to a good night’s sleep after a long day at work. Sleep is one of the most blissful habits and is very essential as well. When one has not had a good night’s sleep, the following day’s productivity takes a toll for sure. It is therefore very essential to get good rest for at least 8 hours. Take the suggested therapy for any disease and it would include 8 hours of rest.

However, when you look closer, the poor sleep is due to some patterns that are our habits. This could include our food patterns, the side we sleep, the pillow we use, etc. Read on to know more!

  1. Food habits: Eating very close to bedtime is one of the worst things to do, especially if it is a greasy meal that you have had. Lying down after a heavy meal gets the acid coming up to the throat and causing further irritation. Keep the dinner light if you really are late for it.
  2. Smoking: Smoking up just before you hit the bed is another habit you should kick (even if you can’t kick the habit of smoking itself), the chemicals released keep you awake and stimulated and do not let you sleep.
  3. Alcohol: Though the general belief is that alcohol induces a good amount of sleep, it requires extra metabolism and so does not give a good night’s sleep. Think of hangover the next morning! There is no one who has a hangover without feeling groggy.
  4. Irregular sleeping pattern: While this is difficult with the changing times, it is very important to stick to a schedule. This helps in the body getting a good, restful sleep and not confusing it as to when to sleep and when to wake up.
  5. Lack of exercise: One of the many side effects of lack of sleep is the lack of a good sleep.
  6. Sleep environment: Keep a pillow and blanket that is comfortable, not too cosy. The room temperature should neither be too warm or cold.
  7. Technology: Keep technology (TV, mobile, tablet, etc.) out of your room and see how your sleep will improve. You can always catch up later on what is happening around you.

If you thought it was just about some hours of sleep, think again. In the long run, there are multiple effects of poor sleep including.

  1. Irritated, moody, angry
  2. Lack of focus and concentration
  3. Loss of productivity
  4. Memory loss
  5. Relationship issues
  6. Poor habits like binge eating and drinking (caffeine and coke) and excessive smoking and drinking

So, sleep for the prescribed 8 hours and see your quality of life improve. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult a general physician.

Fatty liver should not be ignored. It might be a sign of an impending chronic liver disease. To further adds liver health - a fibro scan or elastography is done to asr's architectural damage done to the liver which helps predict treatment outcomes. Upper GI endoscopy may be done adjuvant to the liver evaluation depending on the patient symptoms and signs and is dentally helpful A complete detailed baseline investigation is generally helpful and may be done at expert advise.

I am having pain in right shoulder for last one month. It is increasing in night.
Please get a shoulder evaluation from an Orthopedician He may prescribe some imaging like MRI of the shoulder which is quite helpful as shoulder is more of a soft issue joint rather than a bony joint and also is a high movement joint Please get a complete check - if no obvious injury is present physiotherapy simple excercises may help Else disease based treatment should be planned.
