When the pressure is too high, it forces these valves open and allows blood to pool in the legs. In other cases, the veins have been damaged by trauma, pregnancy, obesity, enlarged veins, or blood clots.

Don't Live with Deep Leg Pain 

Venous hypertension can cause swelling, pain and tenderness, changes in the skin (varicose veins), or leg ulcers. People who suffer from this condition typically experience a dull aching, heaviness, or cramping in the extremities. This condition can make walking difficult or painful and cause a significant negative effect on the overall quality of life. 

If you suffer from the symptoms of venous hypertension, you don’t have to live with deep leg pain anymore. We provide expert, minimally-invasive treatments to reduce your pain and resolve venous hypertension.  

What are the symptoms of venous hypertension?

  • Veins in feet are visible at the ankle and may be itchy.
  • Varicose veins
  • Edema (tissues swollen with fluid)
  • Varicose eczema (dry, flaky skin, blisters)
  • Dry, hard, skin, inflammation, color changes, swollen ankles (lipodermatosclerosis)
  • Skin discoloration (hemosiderin staining)
  • Tight sensation in calves, itchy, painful legs
  • Brown-colored skin at ankles
  • Swollen ankles
  • Painful leg cramps, muscle spasms

What causes venous hypertension?

Venous hypertension can affect anyone, but in most cases is the result of one of the following physical conditions:

  • Excess body weight, obesity
  • Pregnancy
  • Leg damage due to trauma, surgery
  • Sitting or standing for long periods, lack of exercise
  • Smoking
  • A blood clot in a deeper vein (DVT)
  • Phlebitis (inflammation and swelling of a vein close to the skin surface)

Advanced Surgical Technology in Mt. Vernon and Centralia: High Blood Pressure Treatments

At Advanced Surgical Technology, we deliver state-of-the-art, minimally invasive treatments for venous hypertension. The first step in crafting a custom treatment plan is a complete evaluation of your condition with our advanced diagnostic testing. If you are currently suffering symptoms of venous hypertension, we may perform various tests to identify the source of the condition, which often includes a venous ultrasound test that evaluates the speed and direction of the blood flow in the vessel. Once the testing is completed, your treatment can be performed.

What treatment is performed for venous hypertension?

The treatment plan we deliver will reflect the extent of the condition. For some people, lifestyle changes can resolve the condition. Medications may be prescribed to increase blood flow. Surgical treatments may be necessary, which could include:

  • Percutaneous removal of deep venous thrombosis: A blood clot in a deeper vein (DVT) can be treated with various methods but must be addressed at once, as a loosened blood clot can travel through the system and lead to a stroke.
  • Vein ablation: Vein ablation uses heat energy to close a vein, so the blood is rerouted to healthier veins, and may be used to treat symptoms such as pain, swelling, and irritation, and is safe, minimally invasive, and does not create visible scars.
  • Stab phlebectomy: Varicose veins can be treated with stab phlebectomy, or “microphlebectomy,” in which tiny incisions are placed to treat bulging, uncomfortable varicose veins in a minimally invasive, almost painless procedure.
  • Laser vein removal: Spider veins can be removed with a groundbreaking laser device, one of our range of cosmetic services.
