And I went to my podiatrist and my podiatrist immediately sent me after he did some preliminary tests on blood flow, to Modern Vascular. Why I like Modern Vascular is not only is the staff wonderful, but Dr. Pozen, he prescribed to me state of the art medicines that not only helped my heart, but got blood flow to my feet, which I still have an issue with, but which we are monitoring very carefully. I can’t say enough about the staff and Dr. Pozen and other than I think the world of them and I think that if you have any doubt regarding your blood flow to your feet, you can tingling in your feet. If your feet get swollen, any of those things go to your podiatrist and see if what you need is Modern Vascular to check it out. Highly recommended.”

Dr. Scott Brannan Talks Venous Insufficiency on Networking Arizona

Dr. Scott Brannan Talks Venous Insufficiency on Networking Arizona

Dr. Scott Brannan sits down with Carol Blonder on the program Networking Arizona to discuss procedures available for varicose veins. The veins are shallow blood vessels that are responsible for returning blood to the heart. The venous return to the heart can be significantly delayed, causing blood to pool in the veins. The result is varicose veins, spider veins, swelling, and the sensation of aching at the ankles and in the feet. These are all symptoms of venous insufficiency.

Venous insufficiency occurs in 3% – 7% of the population in the US. In individuals over 55, the rate of incidents is estimated to be between 25% – 60% of the population. If a person takes their sock off at the end of the day and sees that there are lines imprinted in the skin it means that there is a degree of swelling. The imprints should be similar on each of the legs, but if there is a difference it is an indicator that the side with deeper imprints could have venous insufficiency. 

Veins with valves that are not functioning properly become dilated due to venous congestion and valve reflux. The procedure performed by Dr. Brannan for venous insufficiency involves placing a needle into the vein and inserting a wire. Then, a catheter is placed over the wire and the tip is placed below where the superficial venous system meets up with the deep venous system. At that point, a type of glue is used to create a plug within the vein and the tributaries going into that vein. The veins on the surface stop receiving blood and flatten out. 

Watch the video to hear Dr. Brannan and Carol Blonder discuss venous insufficiency in greater detail.
