What are the common vascular problems faced by people in India?
Vascular problems are related to the blood vessels (arteries or veins) or the circulatory system.
Some of the common vascular problems faced by people include the following:
Varicose veins- Varicose veins are mostly seen on legs as unsightly protruding veins that cause severe pain and heaviness. Varicose veins arise when the valves of the veins that are responsible for maintaining unidirectional flow of blood get damaged due to excessive pressure. This causes pooling of blood inside veins and make the veins swollen and distended.
Spider veins– These are the thin, thread like veins that appear slightly raised above the skin surface. As the name suggests, these veins resemble the shape of a spider web and are reddish-purple in color. Spider veins cause itching, warmth, skin infections, etc. Initially, spider veins may not seem to be dangerous, but the condition keeps on getting severe with time.
Deep vein thrombosis– Deep vein thrombosis is a condition in which the blood cells tend to stick together as the blood is slow moving or pooled inside the damaged veins. The forming of blood clot due inside a damaged vein is predominant in the legs and the pelvic area. Deep vein thrombosis is a serious vascular disorder that requires immediate medical treatment to avoid any life threatening complication.
Diabetic foot ulcer- A diabetic foot ulcer usually starts with a small blister, cut or injury to the foot. Due to uncontrolled blood sugar and the consequent damage to the arteries and the nerves, the injury does not heal and can get infected. This leads to ulcer formation in the foot and in severe cases, the foot ulcer may even require amputation.
Varicocele- Varicocele is like the varicose veins for the scrotum. In this condition, the scrotal veins swell up due to blood pooling. The condition causes dull pain and in the long run, can have adverse effects on the male’s fertility. Therefore, timely treatment is required in the case of varicocele.
