Understanding Deep Venous Disorders
Deep venous disorders involve the intricate network of veins responsible for carrying blood from the extremities and pelvis back to the heart. When these veins encounter problems, they can lead to various conditions, each with its unique characteristics.
May-Thurner Syndrome (MTS)
May-Thurner Syndrome occurs when the left iliac vein becomes compressed by the right iliac artery. This compression can lead to the formation of blood clots, causing pain, swelling, and discomfort in the legs. Early diagnosis and intervention, such as angioplasty and stent placement (in selected cases), can effectively alleviate symptoms and prevent further complications.
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT)
DVT is a condition characterized by the formation of blood clots in the deep veins, most commonly in the legs. If left untreated, these clots can potentially travel to the lungs (pulmonary embolism) and pose serious health risks. Our comprehensive DVT care includes anticoagulant medications, compression therapy, and minimally invasive clot removal procedures (in selected cases), designed to restore healthy blood flow.
Venous Thoracic Outlet Syndrome (VTOS)
VTOS is a condition in which the veins in the thoracic outlet, the area between the collarbone and the first rib, become compressed or narrowed. This can cause pain, swelling, and discomfort in the upper extremities. Dr Simon Vun, FRACS specialises in the diagnosis and management of VTOS, offering surgical options to relieve vein compression and restore optimal blood flow.
Pelvic Congestion Syndrome (PCS)
PCS is characterized by the pooling of blood in the pelvic veins, often due to ovarian vein reflux or other pelvic vein abnormalities. Symptoms include chronic pelvic pain, varicose veins, and discomfort during sexual activity. Pain is typically worse on standing, sitting, running, or jumping. Once alternative causes for pain have been excluded, targeted embolisation (occlusion) of dysfunctional veins can be performed in appropriate patients to relieve the pelvic congestion and pain symptoms.
Our practice is driven by a commitment to providing the highest level of care to our patients. We understand that deep venous disorders can have a profound impact on your daily life and overall well-being. Dr Vun's team is here to support you throughout your journey to better vascular health.
