Covington, Louisiana. New Orleans vein clinic La Bella Vita Laser and Vein Center is pleased to announce the publication of a new article outlining the connection between vein disease and stroke. According to the vein center, stroke leads to the death of over 140,000 Americans every year. A potential cause of this devastating condition can result as a complication of untreated vein disease.
According to Dr. Randall S. Juleff, a noted spider vein expert in Covington and head of La Bella Vita Laser and Vein Center, a vein disease complication known as deep vein thrombosis can be a risk factor for stroke. “People suffering from vein disease are at a higher risk of deep vein thrombosis due to poorly functioning veins. Unlike healthy veins, which effectively circulate blood out of the extremities, diseased veins lead to sluggish blood flow that has a higher chance of allowing a blood clot to form. The resulting clot has the potential to break off the vein wall and travel to the brain, increasing the risk of stroke.”
Dr. Juleff encourages anyone suffering from varicose veins or any other form of vein disease to contact a Covington vein clinic to better understand their condition. He explains that receiving treatment for unhealthy veins can improve circulation, reducing the risk of complications such as stroke.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
The vein disease conditions varicose veins and spider veins affect many women and men in the U.S. The smaller, red-to-purple colored spider veins are located close to the surface of the skin and tend to present mostly cosmetic problems. Varicose veins, however, tend to be bigger in size and appear as more swollen, tangled and blue in color. Varicose veins can be painful, and may limit a patient’s activities.
In the past, patients with varicose veins or spider veins faced invasive, often painful treatment options. But today, advances in technology give patients a number of minimally-invasive and virtually painless options for effective vein treatment. Some of the best treatments to eliminate problem veins with few side-effects or downtime include sclerotherapy, endovenous laser therapy, endovenous radiofrequency ablation, microphlebetomy, and other laser treatments.
