Pelvic Congestion Syndrome

Patients apply to the clinic with the complaint of long-lasting pain in the lower part of the body. This disease is also known as pelvic varicose. It occurs as a result of the occlusion of the blood vessels in the pelvis and the accumulation of excess blood in this area.

Treatment in Pelvic Congestion Syndrome

The treatment of the disease is performed in two ways: drug therapy and surgery. In drug treatment methods;

  1. Psychotherapy medications
  2. Hormone therapies
  3. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications etc. are used.

As for surgery; vein embolization, sclerotherapy and laparoscopic treatments can be applied.

Nut-Crucker Syndrome (Pressure of the Renal Vein by the Intestinal Artery)

It occurs as a result of compressing the vein in the left kidney and applying pressure on it between the intestinal artery and the aorta. Patients with a mild form are generally advised to drink plenty of water and to gain weight if they are too thin. Hormone and drug treatments are usually sufficient.

In cases where drug treatment is not sufficient during the examinations and controls performed by your physician, the stent placed in the congested vein is usually sufficient for the patients. If all the necessary treatments have been performed before the surgical procedure and a clear result has not been obtained, your physician may decide on a surgical procedure.

Deep Vein Thrombosis:

Deeply located venous occlusion may have started months or years ago. Depending on the initial condition, the disease is called late stage or chronic deep vein thrombosis. The word chronic means that the clotting occurred before one month. This disease also triggers vascular valve insufficiency.

The disease is most common in the legs. It can cause swelling, pain and tension in the legs, color changes and scar formations on the ankle. In the treatment of the disease, the use of compression stockings, occasional elevation of the feet, and the use of certain medication are recommended. However, although these treatments are very useful, they are only aimed at reducing the complaints. With these methods, it is not possible to decongest the vein.

But don't worry. A simple and precise treatment of this disease is now possible with Retimed physicians who are experts in their field. Angio treatment can be applied by our expert physician staff in order for you to regain health.

Vascular Aneurysms

An aneurysm is the name given to the bubbling of an artery or an area of the wall of the heart that loses its elasticity. As a result of high blood pressure, the vessel wall structure weakens, the artery or heart wall expands outward and appears as a bubble when viewed from the outside. If this bubbling tissue is stretched too much due to the pressure, the aneurysm sac ruptures and life-threatening bleedings occur.

Heart aneurysms most often occur after a heart attack. After a heart attack, you should not neglect your check-ups with your doctor and consult your doctor at the slightest indication. An aneurysm in the arteries can develop at any region. The most common place is the aorta, which is our main artery.

In the treatment, surgical procedures determined by your doctor that will be most suitable for you are applied.

What is Raynaud's Disease?

It is known that Raynaud's disease occurs when the arteries in the body contract excessively compared to normal, and when there is not enough blood flow to the fingers, nose or ears, which are also described as the ends of the body.

Causes of Raynaud's Disease

Rheumatic Joint Inflammation: Rheumatic joint inflammations can cause Raynaud's disease in most cases.

Scleroderma: This disease, known as skin hardening, can cause severe contractions in blood vessels, inviting Raynaud's disease.

Lupus Disease: Lupus nephritis, which is the body's immune system attacking tissues and organs, can also trigger Raynaud's disease.

Buerger's Disease: Burger's disease, which is generally observed in smokers and causes obstruction in the arteries, is one of the most important causes of Raynaud's disease if left untreated.

Muscle Inflammation Diseases: Raynaud's disease can be seen as a result of the inability of the blood to be pumped adequately in the body, especially due to severe damage to the striated muscles.

Recurrent Traumas: Repetitive traumas that occur in the body due to internal and external factors can also be given as an example of the causes of Raynaud's disease.

Treatment

  • People should stay away from products containing tobacco and caffeine.
  • Exercising should be a routine.
  • Stress should be avoided.
  • Care should be taken in cold weather.
  • Gloves should be worn in winter.
  • Feet and hands should be protected against impacts.
  • Medication recommended by your doctor that will increase blood flow should be applied.
  • Medications with astringent properties should be avoided.

In Raynaud's disease, which does not heal despite all these recommendations and is now in its final stage, cutting operation may be performed on the sympathetic nerves that cause shrinkage in the diseased regions. This operation, which is a purely surgical method, is performed by our specialist physicians and is preferred only as a last resort in most cases.

What is Buerger's Disease?

It is seen in the form of blockage of tiny arteries in cancer and heart patients, especially in people who consume heavily or are exposed to smoking. This disease is most common in men over the age of 30. However, nowadays, there is an increase in the numbers of female patients as well.

Treatment Method in Buerger's Disease

First of all, quiting smoking is recommended by our physicians. Alternative ways to help you quit smoking are determined together and the necessary support is provided by our expert staff. Quitting smoking can stop the progression of the disease.

The most definitive form of treatment is the removal of a tiny part of the sympathetic nervous system chain in the vessels with a simple operation in the abdomen. This procedure should not intimidate patients. If surgery is needed, your doctor will provide the necessary information. The procedure does not cause any surgical complications.
