Health Conditions Treated by Vasocare

VasoCARE provides medical devices for home treating circulation issues such as chronic edema, lymphedema, venous leg ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and claudication and more.

Lymphedema

Lymphedema

Lymphedema develops when the lymphatics have not developed or have been destroyed while undergoing surgery or radiation treatments. Impaired lymphatics or untreated venous insufficiency lead to Lymphodema.

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

Recommended treatment:

Two, one-hour therapy sessions per day.

Venous Stasis Ulcers

Venous Stasis Ulcers

Venous stasis ulcers develop as the venous valvular system becomes incompetent due to long hours of standing or the result of DVT that damages the valvular system.

Impaired valves leads to venous hypertension, swelling, discoloration, which further decreases epidermal perfusion leading to ulceration. Daily pneumatic compression therapy reduces edema and venous hypertension, improves perfusion, accelerates ulcer healing, and helps prevent recurrence.

Recommended Treatment:

2 – 3, one-hour therapy sessions per day.

Claudication Limb Pain

Claudication Limb Pain

Claudication limb pain is due to inadequate supply of blood flow to the calf muscles. The pain is usually felt while walking and subsides with rest.

In severe cases, the pain persists even during rest. Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) occurs due to an insufficient supply of arterial blood flow.

The VeinOPlus Vascular device treats and helps manage claudication limb pain by increasing arterial inflow to the legs 5 times. Studies show VeinOPlus increases walking distance over 100% and reduces limb pain up to 80%.

Patients love the ease of use. Portability allows for self-treatment while at home or at work.

Recommended treatment:

Two, one-hour daily treatments.

Diabetic Foot Ulcers

Diabetic Foot Ulcers: Causes and Treatment.

Approximately 13% of individuals living with diabetes develop diabetic foot ulcers due to poor circulation. Insufficient arterial inflow to the lower extremities leads to foot ulcers and is the key factor in delayed healing.

Treating Diabetic Foot Ulcers

The VeinOPlus Vascular device improves arterial inflow 5 times to the lower extremities. After one-hour of VeinOPlus therapy, perfusion is improved approximately 20% and healing is accelerated. VasoCARE recommends four, one-hour therapy sessions per day in treating an active ulcer. Once healed, the recommended maintenance protocol is two, one-hour VeinOPlus therapy sessions daily to prevent recurrence.

Recommended treatment:

Four, one-hour therapy sessions per day. Once healed, recommended maintenance protocol is two, one-hour daily sessions to prevent recurrence.

Post VeinOPlus therapy, measurements were taken…

20 minutes later, TcPO₂ level were taken to measure residual index readings. 5 minutes later, Toe Pressure levels were taken to measure residual index readings

Conclusion:

Rapid venous emptying by the VeinOPlus increases arterio-venous gradient pressures, increases TcPO₂ and Toe Pressure levels, and accelerates healing.

One-hour of calf neuromuscular electrostimulation

Results:

VeinOPlus therapy improves microcirculatory blood flow

Post-stimulation testing

Post Thrombotic Syndrome

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.

The VeinOPlus Vascular device reduces edema and pain, increases arterial inflow, and improves patient’s quality of life. The device is easy to use and allows for self-treatment while at home or at work.

SYMPTOMS of PTS:

Leg Heaviness Cramping Swelling Pain Discoloration Dry hardening of skin

Recommended treatment:

Two, one-hour treatment sessions per day.

Deep Vein Thrombosis

DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis)

With the traumatic nature of surgery and prolonged periods of reduced mobility after surgery, most patients remain at increased risk for DVT and PE for up to 3 months after surgical intervention.

The incidence of VTE in the absence of prophylaxis ranges from 40% to 60% (venographic rates) 7 to 14 days after major orthopedic surgery.

A 12-year study found that fatal PE was the single leading cause of death, occurring in 1% of patients.

Every minute, the VascuEase™Portable DVT System helps prevent venous stasis by delivering 50 mmHg of pneumatic pressure for 15 seconds over the calf muscle area. The portability and ease of use promotes high compliance and positive results.

Recommended treatment: 24/7 until patient is fully ambulatory.
