Artery and vein care refers to the medical management of your arteries and veins.
Your arteries are part of your circulatory system, carrying oxygen-rich blood to every cell, tissue, and organ in your body.
Atherosclerosis is a common disease that affects the arteries, causing narrowing or blockages in the tubes from a buildup of plaque. Aneurysms are also a condition involving the arteries, causing a weakened area of the artery wall to balloon outward.
Veins are responsible for returning low-oxygen blood back to the heart and lungs. Veins have thin walls and use delicate valves to push blood.
Varicose veins and venous insufficiency are common vein diseases that develop from damage to the valves or walls of the veins, allowing blood to flow backward and pool. Blood clots are also vein health concerns.
You may benefit from artery and vein care at RIA Endovascular if you have a vascular condition affecting the flow of blood through your arteries or veins. The interventional radiologists treat many conditions, including:
Leg pain and swelling are common symptoms of circulation problems involving the arteries or veins. If you have leg pain when walking (claudication), swelling in the ankles or feet, or leg wounds that don’t heal, schedule a consultation at RIA Endovascular.
RIA Endovascular performs minimally invasive procedures for artery and vein care. Some of the procedures include:
Angiography is a minimally invasive procedure that widens narrowed arteries using catheters and an inflatable balloon.
Sclerotherapy is a treatment for varicose veins. Your provider at RIA Endovascular injects an irritant into the diseased vein, causing it to collapse and close.
Ablation procedures use laser (endovenous laser treatment) or radiofrequency (radiofrequency ablation) energy to close varicose veins in the legs.
An ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that removes the diseased vein through a small incision.
The physicians at RIA Endovascular perform catheter-directed thrombolysis and thrombectomy procedures to dissolve or remove blood clots.
Stenting involves placing a surgical mesh into a blood vessel to keep it open.
RIA Endovascular also places and removes IVC filters for blood clots.
