Ultrasound Venous Lower Extremity Bilateral
How can I have a ultrasound in the lower extremity that revealed venous insufficiency in the saphenous vein but no varicose vein?

Doc thought I had a dvt in my leg post op. ER did ultrasound and found biphasic flow in lower extremity and said pvd. I am 27yo. Is this likely?
Usually a: venous doppler ultrasound is performed to evaluate for DVT(maybe you had it done as well), but you are describing findings of an arterial doppler. Biphasic flow is abnormal and suggests PVD, as you describe. It would be every unusual for a 27 yo to have significant atherosclerotic changes unless you are diabetic or have another predisposing disorder, so you need to talk to your doc about results ...Read more

Can a patient with deep vein thrombosis on his/her lower extremity, have a massage on affected area?
Eventually, Yes: There is no set rule or particular answer to this question. However, i would not recommend that sort of direct repeated pressure to that area for some time after a dvt. Even a few weeks after an acute episode of DVT would be reasonable.. The risk is probably small but why take that risk? Just wait several weeks and then you can resume massage. Once the clot becomes chronic it is much less likely to embolize. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
