Types of Venous Disease Alleviated Through Vein Treatment

Venous Disease is broken up into three separate but related categories to determine the best vein treatment option:

  • Venous Insufficiency (VI)
  • Iliac Venous Compression Syndrome (IVCS)
  • Venous Thromboembolic Disease (VTE)

Venous Insufficiency (VI)

Venous insufficiency is the proper medical term when referring to such symptoms as spider veins and varicose veins, although several other symptoms often arise. Venous insufficiency is a common indicator that vein treatment is necessary.

Deep beneath the skin and within the fatty tissue of the legs lies a network of superficial veins which communicate with the deep system veins in the leg muscles. Small perforating veins act as bridges between these two vein systems to allow them to communicate.

The normal direction of blood flow within the body is from the feet upward toward the abdomen and heart; from superficial to deep system veins. Venous insufficiency occurs when the one-way valve fails to close tightly, resulting in increased pressure in the leg veins.

Vein treatment options are available in the Bonita Springs and Fort Myers areas that can treat venous insufficiency before it evolves into something more serious.

Iliac Venous Compression Syndrome (IVCS)

Iliac venous compression syndrome is a common cause of deep vein thrombosis or DVT. The iliac veins are below the groin and are broken up into four different types:

  • External iliac veins
  • Internal iliac veins
  • Common iliac veins
  • Inferior vena cava

The external iliac veins are the outflow veins while the other three types of iliac veins are the inflow veins which receive blood from the legs and direct it back to the heart.

IVCS occurs when the right common iliac artery applies enough compression on the left common iliac vein to result in a reduction in the venous outflow, causing pooling of the blood, which can then lead to blood clots.

Vein Specialist in the Bonita Springs and Fort Myers regions can diagnose such a dangerous venous disease and develop and carry out the best vein treatment plan to prevent a dangerous outcome.

Venous Thromboembolic Disease (VTE)

Venous Thromboembolic Disease includes both deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE), which proper vein treatment can alleviate.

Deep vein thrombosis typically occurs when a blood clot forms within a deep vein the body, typically in the legs. Symptoms may include:

  • Swelling
  • Red or discolored skin
  • Warm feeling in the leg
  • Pain/cramping/soreness typically beginning in calf

A pulmonary embolism is the result of a piece of DVT breaking loose and traveling into the lungs, which can be fatal.

  • Risk factors for VTE include:
  • Venous insufficiency
  • Iliac vein compression syndrome

When considering receiving vein treatment from Vein Specialists, it is important to weigh the risk of leaving these venous diseases left untreated versus receiving a thorough evaluation, diagnosis, and successful vein treatment.


Venous diseases can present themselves in several different ways. Some of the most common warning signs are spider veins and varicose veins. Although Vein Specialists does offer treatment for varicose veins, it is important to run a comprehensive venous workup to determine the most effective vein treatment option.

To figure out which vein treatment option is needed, patients will undergo an intravascular ultrasound evaluation of their lower extremity venous system. This advanced ultrasound enables Vein Specialists to examine the pelvic veins from inside the vessels and takes vein treatment one step further by allowing Vein Specialists to precisely size and place venous stents if needed.

The results of this ultrasound will allow Vein Specialists to diagnose and correct any underlying vein problems. After this vein treatment, the Vein Specialists can them move on to treating the external signs of venous disease such as spider veins and varicose veins.

It is important to first address any underlying vein concerns before applying vein treatment options to more visible concerns. The cornerstones of Vein Specialists’ practice are built on:

  • Patient Education
  • Thorough Evaluation
  • Superior Vein Treatment Execution

Upon diagnosis, Vein Specialists will carry out the necessary vein treatment for any underlying conditions first and then move on to treating the more visible venous disease culprits. Vein Specialists use a variety of minimally invasive modern procedures to deliver the best vein treatment in Bonita Springs and Fort Myers.

Our Patients

Many satisfied Vein Specialists clients in the Bonita Springs and Fort Myers area, as well as primary care physicians, and medical or surgical specialists refer patients to our team of experienced doctors for vein treatment.

Venous disease affects a diverse community of people, and Vein Specialists offer vein treatment to both men and women and patients of all ages. Vein Specialists treat several venous diseases such as:

  • Spider veins
  • Varicose veins
  • Other signs and symptoms of venous insufficiency
  • Iliac Vein Occlusive Disease
  • Pelvic Congestive Syndrome

Severe Signs

Although spider veins and varicose veins tend to be the most well-known venous insufficiency symptoms remedied by receiving vein treatment, it can also manifest itself in the form of:

  • Leg swelling
  • Skin discoloration
  • Scarring of the skin (stasis dermatitis) and fat (lipodermatosclerosis) in the underlying muscle

Lipodermatosclerosis is a significant risk factor in developing recurrent skin infections and can lead to venous ulcerations, which can be very dangerous. Venus ulcerations can be suspected if a small tear or simple wound is left to fester for months, gradually growing larger. It is important to establish the underlying cause of these wounds to treat them effectively.

Vein Specialists of Bonita Springs and Fort Myers offer vein treatment plans for severe venous disease through early evaluation of the venous system and administer the best vein treatment plan using cutting-edge technology.
