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 IRN not likely to directly correlate to leg symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
