What is Venous Stasis?

Do you have slight skin discoloration of the legs, especially around your shin and ankles? If so, you may have venous stasis, which is a condition where venous blood flow from the legs to the heart has considerably slowed. In long-term cases of venous stasis, slow blood flow can lead to soft tissue damage and skin discoloration.  In more severe cases, venous stasis can even cause wounds and open sores that can be very difficult to treat.

Read on to learn more about venous stasis, including the best treatment options for this blood flow condition.

Venous Stasis 101

Venous stasis occurs when blood flow has slowed enough to start showing up as skin discoloration. There are a number of reasons why a patient may develop venous stasis, including:

  • A sedentary lifestyle (prolonged periods of sitting)
  • History of deep vein thrombosis
  • Poor vein health
  • Hormonal changes
  • Hereditary predisposition
  • And more

Venous stasis is a complex condition that should be fully evaluated and treated by a Board-Certified Vascular Surgeon.

Best Treatment Options for Venous Stasis

At The Vascular Experts Florida, we offer a wide variety of treatment options for patients affected by venous stasis. These treatment options can be tailored to your specific needs, thus helping ensure you get the best results possible.

A few of our venous stasis treatment options include:

  • JOBST compression stockings, which can help reduce swelling and discomfort associated with mild cases of venous stasis (as well as varicose veins!).
  • Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT), which delivers laser light energy through a catheter directly into the veins where blood flow has slowed. The goal is to eventually close off the vein and redirect blood flow to healthier veins, reducing pain and discomfort associated with venous stasis.
    • Varithena, which is a treatment that involves injecting Polidocanol, an FDA-approved medication into the vein to induce scarring and closure of the diseased vein(s). Like with EVLT, the goal of the treatment  is to redirect blood flow to healthier vessels deeper in the tissues.

 

  • Venaseal, which is a procedure where a medical-grade glue is delivered into the diseased vein to induce its closure while redirecting venous blood to healthier veins without the need for compression stockings following the procedure.
