Lymphedema

Lymphedema develops when either the lymphatics have not developed or destroyed while undergoing surgery or radiation treatments. Impaired lymphatics leads to chronic swelling. Also, untreated venous insufficiency can damage the lymphatics and lead to lymphedema.

Lymphedema and chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) are diseases of the lymphatic and venous systems that result in progressive swelling, inflammation, and skin changes. There is no cure for lymphedema, however, the symptoms can be managed with daily pneumatic gradient compression. Our pneumatic compression devices provide gradient compression and are easy to use at home.

Venous Stasis Ulcers

Venous stasis ulcers develop as the venous valvular system becomes incompetent due to long hours of standing or the result of deep vein thrombosis. Impaired valves leads to swelling. As swelling progresses, venous hypertension develops and causes a decrease in epidermal perfusion leading to ulceration. Daily pneumatic gradient compression therapy treats and manages venous hypertension, improves perfusion, accelerates healing, and helps prevent recurrence.

Claudication Limb Pain

Claudication limb pain is due to inadequate supply of blood flow to the calf muscles. The limb pain is usually felt while walking and subsides with rest. Claudication limb pain comes and goes with exertion and rest. In severe claudication, the pain is felt at rest. Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) due to an insufficient supply of arterial blood flow.

Recommended treatment: Two, one-hour daily treatments with the VeinOPlus Vascular device treats and helps manage claudication limb pain by increasing arterial inflow to the legs. The device is easy to use and allows for self-treatment while at work or home.

Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Diabetes is the leading cause for poor circulation. Over 8% of diabetics develop foot ulcers due to arterial insufficiency and calf muscle pump dysfunction.

Daily use of the VeinOPlus Vascular device increases arterial inflow four times and helps accelerate healing.

Recommended treatment: Two to three, one hour therapy sessions per day.

Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are abnormally large veins commonly seen in the legs. Normally, blood circulates from the heart to the legs via arteries and back to the heart through veins. Veins contain one-way valves which allow blood to return from the legs against gravity. If the valves leak, blood pools in leg veins which can become enlarged or varicose.

Venous insufficiency resulting from superficial reflux because of varicose veins is a serious problem. Historically, vein stripping required a substantial incision at the groin crease and additional incisions at the knee or below and was associated with surgical complications, such as damage to nerves and lymphatic vessels.

Endovenous laser treatment (radio frequency ablation) has replaced stripping as the technique for elimination of saphenous vein reflux. The procedure is well tolerated by patients, and produces good cosmetic results.

Reported complications are abnormal sensations such as tingling, pricking, numbness, or thermal (burns) injury to the skin, edema, and DVT are concerns with radiofrequency ablation.

Recommended treatment: 3 hours of daily VeinOPlus Vascular treatments to prevent reperfusion edema or treat reperfusion edema until resorption is attained.

Post Thrombotic Syndrome

Post thrombotic syndrome (PTS) is a common complication of venous thromboembolism leading to chronic swelling, discoloration, pain, and eventually venous leg ulcers.

Recommended treatment: One to two, one-hour treatment sessions per day with the VeinOPlus Vascular device reduces edema and pain, increases arterial inflow, and improves patient’s quality of life.

High Risk Pregnancy + Venous Insufficiency

Bed rest is typically prescribed for high risk pregnancies. Sadly, many pregnant women present symptoms involving edema and limb pain during the second half of pregnancy. In addition, extended periods of bed rest increases the risk of DVT.

Recommended treatment: Controlling edema, pain, and reducing the risk of DVT is achieved with daily treatments of the VeinOPlus Vascular device. Two, one-hour sessions is recommended. VeinOPlus mimics the act of walking (calf muscle pump function), increases venous outflow seven times, reduces pain from swelling, and helps decrease the risk of DVT.

Restless Legs

Restless Legs is characterized by an uncontrollable urge to move legs. Symptoms include itchy, burning and tingling sensations. The symptoms are worse at night when lying down. Patients find relief through walking.

Studies show that the treatment of venous insufficiency can relieve symptoms associated with restless legs. According to a study in the Journal of Phlebology, 80% of the patients with restless legs and venous insufficiency experience relief.

Recommended treatment: One hour of VeinOPlus Vascular therapy prior to bedtime.
