I am having varicose veins. My colour Doppler report says "left s-f incompetence with dilated lsv showing flow reversal upto the knee. A large vein arises from the lsv in the upper calf, passes laterally towards the shin and culminates in multiple varicosities. What does this means. How much problematic the issue is.

Hi lybrate-user Management of varicose veins depend upon the symptomatic severity of the same. There are different measures first of all comes conservative management with elastocrepe and exercises later comes the various options of laser or surgery. So kindly provide all details of symtpoms please for better precise evaluation.

Clogged Arteries - What Should You Know?

Clogged Arteries - What Should You Know?

Blockage in heart is a common term used for narrowing of coronary arteries. Coronary arteries are vessels, which supply blood and thus oxygen and food) to continuously working heart muscles. Heart muscles which are not tired working from the birth till death, however, cannot sustain long without blood supply.

A reduction in blood supply gives rise to ischemia of heart muscles commonly manifested as chest discomfort or angina. A sudden complete shutdown of blood supply leads to heart attack leading to permanent damage to heart (if blood flow not reestablished promptly).

But what causes these arteries to block? Deposition of LDL cholesterol (low density cholesterol) in inner surface of coronary arteries is the primary reason of these blockages. LDL a normal component of blood (upto certain limit) starts depositing in arteries as early as 10 years of age!

Deposition of billions of LDL molecules over several years on inner surface of arteries gives rise to visible narrowings in these arteries. Flow ahead of these narrowings is reduced in proportion to the narrowing. At a level of 70 % narrowing the flow is reduced to give ischemia (and angina) during exercise. Gradually increasing degree of narrowing reduces the exercise needed for ischemia and angina; a narrowing of more than 90 % can give symptoms at rest. A sudden clot formation at any of these stages can block the flow suddenly giving a heart attack.

Regular use of 750 mgs of vitamin c helps to prevent deposition of LDL in blood vessels

If LDL is a normal component of blood, why it is deposited in the arteries at first place?

LDL above a certain limit in blood starts depositing in the arteries. Diabetes, Hypertension, smoking, less exercise and genetics makes it more sticky thus making narrowing faster. This is why these risk elements need to be properly attended for prevention from heart disease. For treatment medicines are important for stopping the progression of narrowings; angioplasty is a method of fast resolution of blockage; and bypass surgery is the method of creating a whole new blood supply for the affected part of the heart. In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!

I want to know that are varicosries reversible or not means if I loose weight tben is it a chance that my varicosties goes away for lifetime or it has nothing to do with weight. Is surgery the only option for varicosties or else there are other options also which is present.

It depends on the stage of varicose veins. In the initial stages, it can be managed without surgery. But as the symptoms and varicose veins progress, intervention is required. There is no single one shot lifetime treatment for varicose veins. You will have to change certain aspects of lifestyle and take care of your veins, otherwise it can reappear in any stage of life. Please consult a vascular surgeon for a more specific advice.

Varicose Veins - Homeopathic Remedies for it!

Varicose Veins - Homeopathic Remedies for it!

Varicose veins are swollen and twisted veins that look blue and are close to the surface of the skin. A vein is said to be varicose when it is dilated, lengthened and tortuous. These twisted, swelled and bulging vessels are commonly found on the insides of the legs between the groin and the ankle, at the back of the calf and as hemorrhoids (veins around the anus).

They form because the blood flow is too slow and the veins get slowly dilated and tortuous in order to accomodate more blood in the lumen. Another possible reason is that the valve in the vein are not working properly so the blood drops down with gravity and collects in the veins of the legs. It is believed that upto 15% adults in the western world are affected by this condition. Varicose veins are more likely to occur in women than in men.

Conservative management of varicose veins is through limb elevation, avoiding long hours of standing at a stretch, wearing dvt stockings, pneumatic compression pumps and few medicines which improve the circulation of blood in vessels. Surgical management is through stripping of veins, sclerotherapy and newer modalities like cryosurgery.

Will need further details such as your Doppler reports. 6 months is a sufficient duration for releif of swelling due to DVT. If it has not releived by now, there is some other problem apart from DVT. You may require some additional treatment.
