Vein and Cardiovascular Services
We can perform a series of diagnostic tests (gone into more detail below) for vascular conditions such as venous insufficiency. This and other vein conditions may manifest themselves through symptoms such as leg cramps or sharp lower leg pain. Patients may also notice the appearance of varicose veins and/or spider veins as the vascular walls begin to expand from an increased volume of blood that’s unable to circulate back up through the leg.
Our spider vein and varicose vein treatments work to improve blood circulation and provide relief from such painful symptoms. Seeking treatment and an early diagnosis can also help avoid harmful health risks such as blood clots in legs, referred to as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) Work with our Mesquite vein specialists to prevent, manage, and treat symptoms in the way that’s best for you.
Or meet with our cardiovascular specialists to discuss chronic conditions or irregular symptoms including hypertension, arrhythmias, lightheadedness, shortness of breath, and coronary disease. When left alone, symptoms can escalate and lead to more serious health concerns.
Before then, schedule a consultation appointment at our cardiovascular center in Mesquite, NV to receive high-quality care from our experienced staff.
Vein and Vascular Diagnostic Tests and Treatments
To uncover possible signs of varicose veins or venous insufficiency, we may perform a diagnostic test known as vein mapping. Vein mapping is ultrasound imaging that lays out your complete venous system in your legs. Such imaging gives us a better idea where problems are stemming from and how to move forward with varicose vein and spider vein removal.
Rule-Out DVT Scans
We may also look specifically for any indication of deep vein thrombosis developing so that we can take any necessary steps to prevent blood clots in legs. Our vein center even offers this diagnostic scan at ⅓ of the regular cost that you can expect to pay for the same scan performed at a general hospital or ER.
Treatment of Acute and Chronic DVT
For patients with DVT or indications that blood clots may form, we can offer an effective treatment plan for blood clots as well as a DVT prevention plan.
Treatment of Venous Insufficiency
Receive varicose vein removal and other venous insufficiency treatments at Heart of Dixie Vein and Vascular Center in Mesquite, NV. We provide effective and less painful procedures than laser treatment for varicose veins such as VenaSeal and radiofrequency ablation.
Cardiac Diagnostic Tests and Treatments
To diagnose a cardiac condition, our specialists can perform a noninvasive echocardiogram. This ultrasonic imaging test shows us the rate and volume of blood flow through a patient’s heart. Irregular levels can give us a clear indication of a cardiovascular condition.
Our St. George office office performs bubble echocardiograms. This is a minimally invasive procedure in which we monitor for plaque buildup or holes in arteries that could be the source of heart-related symptoms.
Abdominal Aortic Ultrasound
One ultrasound we offer specifically examines the aorta, the largest blood vessel in your body, for aneurysms or dilated vessels. Conditions such as these can lead to sometimes dangerous health risks without such diagnostic testing.
To examine the carotid arteries that circulate blood flow to your brain, we may perform another ultrasonic test. In the case that we uncover large amounts of plaque blocking circulation, an endarterectomy may be required from another vascular surgeon.
We may also perform an ankle-brachial index for diagnosing peripheral artery disease (PAD). In this procedure, our specialists will measure the blood pressure in your upper arm and ankle, comparing levels for any signs of plaque buildup or limited blood circulation.
Peripheral Arterial Ultrasound
As another test for PAD, we provide peripheral arterial ultrasounds as well. This will give us clear imaging of any narrowed arteries or occlusions that are restricting blood flow and possibly causing your symptoms.
Electrocardiograms (EKG) are heart rate monitors that measure the electrical activity of a patient’s heart. These are performed quickly and easily if needed during your office visit.
Holter Monitor (24 hour or 48 hour)
To measure heart rate and check for any cardiac arrhythmia for a 24 hour or 48 hour testing period, our specialists will attach a Holter monitor to patients, one type of EKG our Mesquite office uses. We’ll place sensors on the patient’s skin that connects back to the device. However, since sensors can go discreetly under a person’s clothing, there is no need for your daily routine to cease.
21-day Cardiac Event Monitor
We also offer 21-day cardiac event monitors should the patient require a longer heart monitoring period. In these cases, generally the patient’s arrhythmia will not be as apparent, necessitating more time to identify it.
Treatment of PAD
Should we diagnose peripheral arterial disease, our specialists offer a number of solutions and PAD treatment plans that help individuals live healthier and enjoy fulfilling lives. Contact our Mesquite, NV medical clinic today to begin!
