Perforator veins are an extremely important part of the vascular system, passing through muscle tissue in the arms and legs and helping pump blood back toward the heart and lungs. This perforation of the muscle is crucial to proper blood flow as muscle contraction counteracts the force of gravity pulling blood downward. Therefore, dysfunctional perforator veins are linked with painful and potentially serious circulation problems such as varicose veins.
When the valves and walls of perforator veins are not working properly, they allow blood to collect in the damaged section, increasing vascular pressure and interfering with proper circulation. Because they are located deeper within the body than other veins, weakened perforator veins may be the root cause ofvaricose veins, reticular veins, and spider veins that are apparent from the surface.
Treatment Of Perforator Veins
The Oklahoma Vein & Endovascular Center uses highly advanced imaging technology to see problems in perforator veins deep within muscle tissue in the arms and legs. This allows our vein doctor in Oklahoma City, Dr. Pedulla, to pinpoint the location of vein dysfunction and precisely target his perforator vein treatment procedures. Using minimally invasive sclerotherapy and EVLT® (Endovenous Laser Treatment), Dr. Pedulla treats perforator veins with pinpoint accuracy and comforting local anesthetic to reduce both pain and the risk of complications.
Unlike other doctors whose training is based in dermatology, Dr. Pedulla trained in and practiced interventional cardiology for over 15 years. In this time, Dr. Pedulla demonstrated his skill in using advanced techniques to fix problems in the vital veins near the heart, preventing life-threatening cardiac conditions. This experience makes Dr. Pedulla exceptionally qualified to perform vein treatment procedures in other parts of the body, such as the legs and arms.
Throughout his career, Dr. Pedulla has been committed to the comfort and well-being of his patients, which is why he uses the least invasive techniques available in his vein treatment practice. Even when treating problems deep within muscle tissue, such as perforator veins, Dr. Pedulla makes only tiny incisions that typically leave no scar and require very little recovery time.
