Ruptured Vein: You should see a Vascular Surgeon right away to have your circulation evaluated. Your Vascular Surgeon will help you to determine the cause of the ruptured vein and sudden onset bruising which could be the result of vascular disease. Vascular Surgeons specialize in the treatment and evaluation of your arteries, veins and lymphatic systems.
