What is Leg Swelling?

Leg swelling is a very common condition affecting patients in all age groups. It can be acute or chronic condition affecting one or both legs. There are multiple causes of leg swelling with venous disorders being one of the relatively common cause of the condition. Other causes include medication, medical conditions, lymphatic disorders besides others.

Assessment includes detailed history, physical examination, and blood tests as required followed by Doppler ultrasound assessment of the legs.

 

What is a Doppler Ultrasound?

According to Mayo Clinic, a Doppler ultrasound is a noninvasive test that can be used to estimate the blood flow through your blood vessels by bouncing high-frequency sound waves (ultrasound) off circulating red blood cells. This is different from a regular ultrasound, which uses sound waves to produce images and does not show blood flow.

This test may be done as an alternative to more-invasive procedures, such as angiography, which involves injecting dye into the blood vessels so that they show up clearly on X-ray images. A Doppler ultrasound test may also help our doctor check or to monitor certain treatments to your veins. There are more several types of venous diseases we offer to treat different problems including varicose veins and spiders veins as well as deep vein thrombosisThanks to the latest innovations have led to more precise assessment and better informed treatment plans.
