Laser vein clinic

Common Questions and Answers about Laser vein clinic


Avatar m tn I don’t know what my options are after that. Do I go and strip the vein, laser surgery. Please advice and suggest a good specialist in Bay Area.
Avatar n tn PVI stands for "pulmonary vein isolation" is the type of ablation that is done specifically for A-fib...MOST (but not all) A-fib is thought to originate from around the pulmonary veins in the left atrium of the heart. The laser "burns" a circle around each vein to stop any abnormal pathway that might be causing the A-fib.
Avatar n tn I stopped when I got an aching feeling in my right testicle. A large vein appeared on the right side of my penis at the base of the shaft and was more noticeable when I had an erection. I went to a walk in clinic and he said he didn't see or feel anything wrong. However, from reading, I'd say it is a variceole. It doesn't really cause a problem now, but it just feels like there's something in the right side of my scrotum that wasn't there before this happened.
Avatar m tn I usually seen some floaters in the past when looking at a bright background but never like this. I went to a walk-in clinic and told the doctor about my problem and he said it was nothing and I should get used to them. About a week ago (July 7th), I woke up in the morning and the vision in my left eye was completely clouded over. I could barely see my fingers in front of my face. I went to the emergency room and the triage nurse seemed quite worried when I told her some of my symptoms.
177275 tn?1511758844 How about upgrading technology for Laser Vision Correction? Well, depending on where a patient has laser vision correction there can be a menu of options. For example some clinics will have a standard option where lower order aberrations (sphere and cylinder) are corrected for a price, say $ 1,500 per eye. If the patient wants wavefront optimized treatment they may pay $ 2,150 per eye and if the patient opts for wavefront customized or guided treatment they may pay $ 2,450 per eye.
1408746 tn?1283678948 This Syndrome results most commonly from the compression of the left renal vein between the abdominal aorta (AA) and superior mesenteric artery (SMA), although other variants exist.[1][2] The name derives from the fact that, in the sagittal view, the SMA and AA (with some imagination) appear to be a nutcracker crushing a nut (the renal vein).
Avatar n tn GAVE when it's found in the stomach is often called 'watermelon' stomach and when they're in that location, docs will go in and selectively laser ablate the 'mass' after it has been mapped and it's usually treated quite successfully. From what I've read, this condition can more often be found in those with lupus, so have you been checked for that problem?
Avatar n tn I explained that nothing in my routine had changed, but I had changed my diet and consequently lost around 18 lbs. He suggested, though, that I see a vein specialist to rule out venous insufficiency/valve issues. I followed his advice and scheduled an appointment. I also made an appointment with another dermatologist. At my visit to the dermatologist, I was told that it was likely spider veins and simply a cosmetic issue. I was given the option of laser treatment at $150/hr.
Avatar n tn And thought it may have been from this. I recently had laser an vein surgery also.
Avatar n tn I have also looked on the FDA sites and have seen nothing mentioned about this. My mom really wants me to find out about Docs. at the Mayo Clinic because she has heard they have a top notch program. I can't imagine what is going on with the FDA and why all of the Docs are so spooked about this proceedure. I will try to find out more info.
Avatar f tn After unsuccessfully trying to tone my stomach, having pain, mostly on the right side where my gallbladder scars are, and meeting nothing but more instructions to 'stick with my diet, keep doing the ab exercises, there can't be anything else wrong' attitude, I went to see about laser lipo. I was astonished when the dr. informed me he couldn't help me, the fat on my abdomen was so minimal he couldn't perform the surgery.
Avatar f tn 1. That symptoms suggests macular pathology but many possible causes: CSR, macular degeneration, macular membrane, blockage of artery or vein near macula 2. That often is a macula symptoms is called "micropsia" if the image seems larger than it should be "macropsia" if distorted "metamorphopsia" 3. The OCT can be used for different things. In glaucoma its usually used around the optic nerve and measure nerve fiber layer thickness.
Avatar f tn We have refused recommendations and are now following Ornish/Esselstyn dietary guidelines for reversing CAD, hoping for collaterals and planning to contact Cleveland Clinic regarding laser or cutter cath intervention. My (61 years young) husband had emergency CABG 1/2010, x4, was doing great with recovery and rehab until 5/10 when angina returned. EF was 60% prior to surgery, now 50%. We feel CABG had value due to LAD being 80% blocked prior.
Avatar n tn When pacemaker leads are extracted with a laser system, the laser is mounted on a catheter that is inserted via a central vein either in the groin, neck, or below the collarbone. The catheter is positioned around the pre-existing lead and a laser is used to sever the scar tissue that attaches the lead tip to the heart muscle. The laser is contained within the catheter. An infected pacemaker means that either the pacemaker battery/generator is infected or the lead itself is infected.
Avatar n tn saphenous vein graft to LAD totally occluded at origin; saphenous vein graft to the right coronary artery is patent with good antegrade flow to main vessel; LIMA to diagonal branch of LAD is widely patent, good antegrade and retrograde flow into native vessel with retrograde flow extending into the native LAD. Retrograde flow demonstrates a 90% stenosis in the proximal diagonal branch.
Avatar m tn The ER took an ultrasound, saw nothing, and sent home to follow up with the doctor who has recently performed laser vein work done in that leg. My partner knows nothing of my encounter (so her symptoms can't possibly anxiety-based), and I am worried sick that I may have infected her with something. (We have had intercourse twice in the last 6 days) Herpes? Now, today, my constant need to pee has returned and my left testicle aches. No other symptoms.
Avatar n tn VEGF is infused directly into the coronary arteries and through a peripheral vein initially and then intravenously afterwards. TMR involves using a laser to create new, microscopic channels in the left ventricular walls to allow blood to "percolate" from the LV cavity to areas of ischemic heart muscle. TMR can be done surgically or via a percutaneous approach similar to angiography.

Avatar n tn Had a PVD and multiple retina tears just shy of 7 months ago. After 3 rounds of laser over a 6 week period I was passed over to a retina surgeon at the local university teaching hospital who placed an encircling scleral buckle and did lots of cryo.
Avatar n tn The radioactivity decreases the rate at which a blockage can reoccur. Trials are currently underway at the Cleveland Clinic examining this new procedure. Surgical bypass has now been used for over 30 years. A vein or artery graft is used to "bypass" or go around the blockage in the artery. Arteries tend to have better outcomes than veins lasting up to 20+ years often. Surgery is limited to arteries that have a good place to insert the graft.
Avatar n tn Hi, Glad to see that we are all keeping up with what is happening to each other. Makes me feel better to go through it with someone else. My pain is mild today and I only notice it when I touch my abdomen. The swelling and bruising is much better, also. My upper abdomen is so weird. Right below the bra line, I have these "fat hunks" under each breast. It's right over those ribs you can feel. That's the only way I can think to describe them.

1346447 tn?1327866172 He managed to use angioplasty and remove all the total blockage, then he used rotablation and laser to remove the plaque down three quarters of the left vessel. This leaves the lining quite rough and it took 5 of the longests stents to cover it. Now nearly all the vessel is plaque free. However, I am still getting angina because there are two tiny blockages right at the bottom so I need to ask his opinion on those. A year later though, the 5 stents are still fully open and working great.
Avatar n tn He was treated two in his right eye with Laser twice and left eye was treated once with Laser. But due to inefficieicny of my doctor, he could not detect that my sons retina is detached and we waited for almot 2 week before he told us. We move to Duke hospital in Durham where Dr Toth performed surgery in both eye for Retina detachment (Right eye complete detachment and Left for Partial detachment). His left eye was attached within a week where as righ eye developed a membrane.
Avatar m tn I did have Hep B at one time. I have cirrhosis..and was told by my Cleveland Clinic hepatologist that since I am 65, that I would prob not need a liver trans till I turned 73 at which time I would be too old to transplant. Nice. I have other health issues that "popped up" after his statement (r/a lung after 33 yrs with r/a) so I prob would not be able to pass the transplant eval anyway. But it made me feel like you did. Feeling doomed, there is no hope.
Avatar n tn its not blood blisters,its a blood vessel under the skin like your vein pops and then there is a bruise for about 2 days then it goes away
Avatar n tn The clinic had been investigated in 2005 but somehow remained open.

He treated her with "ozone therapy" and showed her nude photos of his other patients. She died 36 days after beginning treatment.
Avatar n tn I've seen 4 orthopedic surgeons, someone for RA testing, and the last thing was lymphedema therapy. My last doctor suggested I go to the Cleveland Clinic or Mayo Clinic that specialize in strange conditions. He still thinks its lymphedema but the therapy didn't help and she was a great therapist. So, I'm stumped with all of you! I hope together we can solve this problem!!
