Your Vascular Health
Carotid disease without stroke or TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack) is usually completely without symptoms (asymptomatic). It may be discovered by your doctor hearing whooshing noises (sometimes called a “bruit”) over the arteries in your neck, but otherwise may produce no other symptoms you would notice. Carotid disease is usually discovered and confirmed by a test called duplex ultrasound. Other tests may include CT scans or MRI. Screening ultrasounds discovers some carotid disease. Find out if a screening ultrasound makes sense for you.
Our duplex ultrasound technology painlessly analyzes blood flow in arteries, veins and organs such as the kidneys. This non-invasive vascular testing can provide early detection of abnormalities in the arteries and veins.
DVT or Deep Venous Thrombosis is a common cause of pain and disability. DVTs may occur following bone or joint surgery, injury, or prolonged sitting (such as a long plane flight or car trip). Common symptoms of DVT include sudden leg pain or swelling in the calf or thigh.
DVTs can be dangerous if a blood clot breaks off and travels to the lungs. This is called pulmonary embolism (PE). Symptoms of pulmonary emboli include sudden shortness of breath or chest pain.
Lake Washington Vascular has a comprehensive program to diagnose and treat DVTs. Detection of DVT is made with an ultrasound. If detected, treatment can be initiated immediately in our office.
Varicose veins and spider veins are two different medical conditions with different symptoms and treatments.
Varicose veins are veins that have become dilated because of valve failure. When the valves fail, blood can pool in the veins and cause increased pressure, dilation, and pain. There are several procedures for treating varicose vein, including compression stockings, sclerotherapy injections, endovenous laser ablation or surgery. For more information, please see our Varicose Veins section.
Spider veins are a cosmetic condition marked by red, blue and purple lines resembling spider webs. They are visible usually on the thighs, lower legs or face. They are typically only a cosmetic problem, rarely causing physical symptoms, but in some cases can be indications of more serious vein or artery conditions. Our vascular specialists may recommend treatment that includes compression stockings, sclerotherapy (injections into surface veins to close them) or laser therapy. For more information, please see our Spider Veins section.
