The "Missing Link”: Venous Insufficiency
To understand the true importance of the Madyoon Method for comprehensive cardiovascular investigation, examination and treatment, you must first understand that the most important cause of heart and vascular disease is "Endothelial Cell Dysfunction" or ECD.
This makes a deeper investigation of venous insufficiency much more than a cosmetic challenge!
We know that venous disease and varicose veins can have serious systemic effects and can cause or worsen cardiovascular diseases. Current important clinical trials are compounding evidence which leads us to this important “Missing Link!”
Dr. Madyoon believes the evidence is already overwhelming. He is convinced what we already know provides the opportunity to expand and improve your evaluation and ultimate care.
Endothelial cells are biologically active and line the inside wall of all the blood vessels in your body. Working properly, these cells secrete hormones and proteins essential for the proper function of your cardiovascular system.
Common conditions such as aging, diabetes, hypertension, smoking and high levels of cholesterol can cause ECD. The secretion of Renin, Angiotensin and activation of the sympathetic nervous system (“Neurohormonal activation”) are also possible causes. Neurohormonal activation is known to occur in several cardiovascular disease states such as heart failure, myocardial infarction and hypertension.
But the effects of venous disease on neurohormonal activation are not well studied. There are physiologic reasons to believe that decreased circulating volume that happens in patients with venous insufficiency can cause this neurohormonal activation, in the same manner that it happens in patients with heart failure. It is easy to see that this impaired circulation can cause ECD and can trigger other hazardous effects within your circulatory system.
Your Venous System.
Next the Madyoon Method will make a thorough and comprehensive examination of your venous health and the visible and not so visible effects of venous insufficiency, We begin the exam with lower extremity arterial and venous duplex and reflux scanning. We use sound waves to determine the presence of blockages in the arteries and veins of your legs that may cause symptoms such as claudication, swelling or pain.
While we understand and are sensitive to how you look, our evaluation goes far beyond “cosmetics”.
If you present to us with varicose veins, for example, we treat the underlying cause of varicose veins first with venous ablation therapy, using radio-frequency technology. Radio frequency ablation (RFA) is a medical procedure where part of the electrical conduction system of the heart, tumor or other dysfunctional tissue is ablated using the heat generated from high frequency alternating current to treat a medical disorder.
THEN we use surface body laser and sclerotherapy to treat the secondary small veins. Varicose veins appear as twisted, enlarged veins that lie close to the surface of the skin. The goal of the endovenous laser treatment is to eliminate the defective veins forcing blood to return to the heart through the deep vein system.
The end result is a beautiful, “varicose and spider vein free” leg with lasting results and no discoloration of the skin. We use only the latest and highest quality injectables and most powerful high energy laser machine for treatment of spider veins.
