An ultrasound is a diagnostic imaging technique that transmits sound waves into your body and processes the waves that bounce off body structures to create images or video of the inner structures. Abdominal aortic ultrasound is used to image the aorta, the main artery of the heart, as it passes down into the abdomen.
Doppler Arterial Pressures and Examination
A Doppler test or Doppler ultrasound is a non-invasive diagnostic procedure that uses high frequency sound waves to examine the rate of blood flow in your blood vessels. The sound waves that are directed on the blood vessels bounce off the circulating blood cells and are recorded as the speed and direction of blood flow.
It is one of the common treatments for varicose veins. A sclerosing/irritant solution is injected to the target site where the varicose veins are present. The sclerosing solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel causing the vein to swell and stick together.
Varicose Vein Procedure (Venefit Procedure – VNUS Closure Procedure)
Veins perform the function of transporting impure (deoxygenated) blood from the different parts of the body to the heart for purification (oxygenation). Veins in the legs may sometimes enlarge or twist and fail to perform their normal functions due to factors such as age, obesity, prolonged standing, hormonal changes (especially during menopause), leg injury or strain in the abdomen due to pregnancy or constipation.
