Venous Angiogram & Interventions

Venous angiogram, also known as venography, is a diagnostic procedure used to evaluate the veins and their blood flow. It involves injecting a contrast dye into the veins and using X-ray imaging to visualize the veins and identify any abnormalities. Venous angiograms are commonly performed to diagnose conditions such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT), venous insufficiency, or venous malformations. However, it is primarily a diagnostic tool rather than a treatment procedure.

  1. Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) Treatment:
    -Anticoagulant medication: Blood-thinning medications, such as heparin or warfarin, may be prescribed to prevent the clot from growing larger and to reduce the risk of complications.
    -Thrombolysis: In severe cases of DVT, thrombolysis may be performed, which involves injecting clot-dissolving medications directly into the clot to help dissolve it more rapidly.
  2. Inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placement: If there is a high risk of blood clots traveling to the lungs, an IVC filter may be inserted into the main vein to trap any clots and prevent them from reaching the lungs. 
  3. Venous Angioplasty and stenting: Balloon dilatation of the narrowed and obstructed veins and some cases, stenting performed to open the blocked or narrowed veins.
  4. Venous Insufficiency Treatment:
    -Compression therapy: Compression stockings or bandages may be recommended to help improve blood flow and reduce swelling in the legs.
    -Lifestyle changes: Modifying lifestyle factors such as weight management, regular exercise, and avoiding prolonged sitting or standing can help alleviate symptoms.
    -Endovenous ablation: This minimally invasive procedure uses laser or radiofrequency energy to close off diseased veins, redirecting blood flow to healthier veins.
    -Sclerotherapy: In this procedure, a solution is injected into the affected veins, causing them to close and redirect blood flow to healthier veins.

It is important to note that the choice of treatment depends on various factors, including the specific condition, its severity, and the patient’s overall health. Treatment decisions should be made in consultation with a healthcare professional specializing in vascular or interventional radiology. They can provide a thorough evaluation and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan based on individual circumstances.
