Prevent/intervention: Vascular disease, like dr. Peter corrado states, needs a team approach as its a silent disease. Medical therapies; antiplatelets, antihypertensives, blood sugar control and lipid control/statins. Monitoring; ultrasound and vascular exams to intervene with stents, balloons or surgery before a cardiovascular event. Most important stop or decrease the nictotine addiction. ...Read more

Dx with Vascular insufficiency 1 yr ago - wear compression socks. On Warfarin for10 yrs. Could low PT/ INR cause lower leg pain to worsen?
Typically not: The INR should not play a role in how your leg pain feels. Fluctuations in the INR can affect the efficacy of the medication though (low INR could increase risk of clotting and high INR can increase risk of bleeding). If you are on warfarin to prevent blood clots, having the INR too low could increase your risk of recurrent clots. But INR not likely to directly correlate to leg symptoms. ...Read more

Is it possible to please tell me the what are chronic venous insufficiency and peripheral vascular disease?
Magnitude of risk: Pad aka PVD or diseased arteries carries risk for major events, heart attack, stroke, limb loss, death. While venous insufficiency is common and benefits from treatment, it does not carry risk of life and limb. That is the biggest difference between the two. They are both involving blood conduits. ...Read more
Can you please tell me the difference between chronic venous insufficiency and peripheral vascular disease?
In vs. Out flow: Chronic venous insufficiency results from valve dysfunction in the venous system. This causes the pressure in the veins just under the skin to become too high resulting in swelling of the veins. These veins enlarge and become varicose, leak water causing leg swelling, leak blood resulting in skin discoloration. Ulcers can occur. PVD is the result of blockages in the arteries supplying blood. ...Read more
Could you please tell me the difference between having chronic venous insufficiency and peripheral vascular disease?
Is it safe to use Benadryl (diphenhydramine) daily if you have peripheral vascular/artery disease or chronic venous insufficiency?
Could mean anything: When a vascular surgeon says something is "dry" it means there is no bleeding. Alternatively, I have heard body builders refer to a "vascular dry" appearance where they have prominent veins sticking out. Need more context. ...Read more

You need to find out from the treating doctor what is the cause of this mass/tumor and what is he/she recommending for diagnosis and treatment? ...Read more
Degree of vascularit: Most tumor grow by anerobic metabolism, Warburg Citric Acid Cycle. They do not need oxygen to survive and can best be controlled by use of Hyperbaric Oxygenation. Blood supply serves to allow the tumor cells to metastasize. Drugs that inhibit blood supply like Avastin (bevacizumab) actually work by opening microcirculation to let drugs into tumor. More effectively. ...Read more
Source of invasion: All tumors tend to spread, mostly by metastasizing through surrounding blood supply. The tumors do not need the oxygen supplied by the vessels to survive since they grow by anaerobic metabolism. When Folkman developed angiostatin to diminish blood supply to tumors there was no change in growth and lesions progressed. This confirmed the role of vascularization to the tumor as sources for invasion ...Read more

Arteries and veins: The vascular system performs circulation of blood throughout the body. It consists of the arteries and veins that run everywhere including the head, neck, chest, abdomen and all 4 extremities. The heart might also be included as it is the pump that circulates the blood thru the vascular system. The lymphatics of the body are also considered a third part of the vascular system. ...Read more

More tissue: The jejunum is wider, its diameter being about 4 cm., and is thicker, more vascular, and of a deeper color than the ileum, so that a given length weighs more. Nearest the duodenum the mesenteric loops are primary, toward the ileocolic junction, secondary and tertiary loops are observed. ...Read more

Progressively worse: Since the vascular system is everywhere in our body stepwise decline usually involves first the blood pressure (BP)-especially if it is persistently elevated and then going into the major organ systems like the heart, the brain, large vessels like the Carotid Arteries and the kidneys. All systems can be affected. The key is to have your BP, Cholesterol, stress levels under control, plus exercise ...Read more
