Most people think of varicose veins as a cosmetic concern, but they can lead to other, more serious problems. For example, when blood pools in the vein, it can clot. “I use the analogy of a running stream versus a stagnant pond,” Anton says. “This can cause phlebitis, a superficial clot that can be painful, but usually not life threatening.”

Angiosome-Guided Testing | Clinicians | Väsamed


Angiosome Guided TestingTissue perfusion is regulated by the microcirculation. The six angiosomes of the foot and ankle are supplied by three main arteries – the posterior tibial, the anterior tibial and the peroneal artery. Skin perfusion pressure can be used to assess various angiosomes while PAD-IQ’s touch screen, color-coded interface makes this an intuitive process. The PTA supplies the plantar aspect of the toes, the web spaces between the toes, the sole of the foot, and the inside of the heel. Three main branches of the PTA supply distinct portions of the sole: the calcaneal branch supplies the heel, the medial plantar artery supplies the instep, and the lateral plantar artery supplies the lateral midfoot and the forefoot. The ATA becomes the doralis pedis artery that supplies the dorsum of the foot. The PA supplies the lateral border of the ankle and the outside of the heel. The two branches of the PA supply the anterolateral portion of the ankle and the hid foot, with the anterior perforating branch supplying the anterlateral part of the upper ankle and the calcaneal branch supplying the plantar aspect of the heel.

This medical disorder affects 25 million Americans including one-half of all people over the age of 50 and two-thirds of all women over 60. Most of these people have suffered with varicose veins for decades.Heredity is the major factor in varicose veins. If your parents or siblings have had varicose veins, then you are more likely to develop them. People who are obese or women with multiple pregnancies are particularly susceptible because the extra weight puts strain on the veins. Women are more prone to develop varicose veins than men, in part because female hormones tend to relax vein walls and contribute to development of venous reflux..
