A vascular condition is anything that affects the circulation in your veins. These are the vessels that return oxygen-depleted blood to the heart. The major vascular conditions we treat are Peripheral Arterial Disease, Varicose Veins, Spider Veins, Venous Ulcers, and Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). If you suffer from any of these conditions, contact Houston’s Vein Doctor, Dr. Ayar Today!
Peripheral Arterial Disease
Peripheral arterial disease, also known as PAD, encompasses arterial disease occurring in areas of the body other than the heart or brain. It is a result of plaque buildup. Arteries become narrowed or blocked, which causes decreased blood flow.
Deep Vein Thrombosis
Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) usually occurs in your thighs or calf muscles when a blood clot is situated within a deep vein in the muscle. The restricted blood flow often causes pain and swelling.
An abnormal buildup of fluid in tissues called edema is what causes swelling in the legs. In some cases, edema that results in painful swollen legs and ankles can be caused by lymphatic dysfunction.
Varicose veins are surface veins that have become enlarged, swollen, twisted, and/or bulging due to vein disease. They can be red, blue, or flesh-toned in color and most often appear on the thighs, back of the calves, and inside of the leg.
They may not be bulging or painful, but spider veins are still unsightly and unwelcome. Medically referred to as telangiectasia, spider veins are more of a cosmetic than a painful nuisance.
If Peripheral Arterial Disease or Vein Reflux Disease progresses it can result in Leg Ulcers. This represents advanced stage disease requiring management with prompt consultation and procedures to allow the wounds to heal and reduce the chance of further tissue loss.

Angioplasty is used to help open up blocked arteries. This procedure utilizes a small “balloon,” that is inserted into the vein, this is ideal for narrowed arteries, veins, or dialysis shunts.
Stents are inserted into arteries or veins to prolong patency and areas of narrowing caused by plaque build-up. It involves the insertion of a permanent metallic scaffold to hold the vessel open.
Atherectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that clears blocked arteries helping patients to return to an active lifestyle more quickly. It is an adjunct to Angioplasty and stenting which helps prolong patency after the procedure.
For uterine fibroid embolization, an interventional radiology specialist will use an x-ray camera referred to as a fluoroscope. The fluoroscope guides small particles to the fibroid and uterus through a catheter.
Radiofrequency Ablation is an outpatient procedure that treats varicose veins at the root of the problem. This procedure applies consistent and uniform heat to contract the collagen in the vein walls.
This procedure is a relatively painless treatment for spider veins. Sclerotherapy uses fine needles; there is no need for surgical incisions or for anesthesia. This makes it a great option for treating facial veins.
