Arterial disease is the leading cause of cardiovascular disease worldwide. The most common type of arterial disease is an occlusion or obstruction in the arteries supplying blood to a part of your body. These arteries play a significant function in moving blood from the heart to organs and other parts of the body, like the legs and feet.
Pelvic pain is experienced in the lower parts of the abdomen and pelvis. The pain might be steady or kick in at random intervals. Pelvic pain is commonly a sign of a vascular disorder. At the Center for Vascular Medicine, you can rely on our vascular doctor to address your pelvic pain. If it’s not resolved in time, the condition can progress into a worse problem. The following are some of the common causes of pelvic pain.
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot usually in the legs due to prolonged sitting or other surgical procedures. It can become Pulmonary Embolisms where the clot travels to the heart, which is the predominant cause of death among patients. Diagnosis of Deep Vein Thrombosis can be complicated, but it can be quickly treated with the help of a proficient vascular physician.
Anyone can be diagnosed with a DVT. Some factors will make you more prone to DVT; these are:
Veins in the body play the role of pumping blood back to the heart. And since blood circulation is essential in the nutrient distribution in the body, blood circulation must remain unhindered. Blood clots can disrupt blood circulation, which can be painful and uncomfortable. However, if these clots form deep in the body tissues, it is referred to as; deep vein thrombosis (DVT). However, diagnosing such an ailment is difficult, and you may need the assistance of a vascular physician.
