PERIPHERAL VASCULAR DISEASE MANAGEMENT

Hattiesburg Clinic Heart & Vascular offers peripheral vascular interventions. Peripheral vascular disease (PVD), also known as peripheral arterial disease (PAD), is the narrowing and/or hardening of arteries, which causes a decrease in blood flow. Hardening of the arteries is also called atherosclerosis. Patients with PVD may experience symptoms that include:

  • Numbness/weakness in legs
  • Burning pain, typically in the toes
  • Wounds on the toe, feet or legs that do not heal properly
  • Skin changes, including a difference in color, temperature or texture

Extreme cases of PVD may lead to the need to amputate the limb. To help prevent amputation, Heart & Vascular offers a variety of non-invasive options for treating PVD, including:

  • Angioplasty
  • Stenting
  • Atherectomy

VARICOSE VEIN TREATMENT

Varicose veins are enlarged veins, mostly occurring in the legs and feet. Spider veins are a common, mild variation of varicose veins, and both are primarily a cosmetic concern. Sometimes varicose veins can cause discomfort or potentially lead to other problems.

ENDOVASCULAR LASER THERAPY

Endovascular laser therapy (EVLT) is a brief, minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins that leaves no scarring and is performed in your doctor’s office. The treatment typically takes less than one hour and requires no anesthesia. A small laser is passed into the vein, and then the laser is directed to the affected vein, causing it to close and seal.

VASCULAR LABORATORY

At Hattiesburg Clinic Heart & Vascular, the vascular laboratory provides diagnostic testing and procedures on a patient’s arteries and veins.

VENOUS REFLUX DISEASE

What is venous reflux disease? Venous reflux disease, also known as chronic venous disease, develops when the valves in the leg veins stop working properly and allow blood to flow backward (or reflux) and pool in the lower leg veins. Symptoms can worsen over time if venous reflux disease is left untreated. Click here for a PDF of frequently asked questions about venous reflux disease and the VenaSeal Procedure.
