Precision VIR Announces Availability of Varithena® as a Non-Surgical Option for Patients with Symptoms Related to or Caused by Varicose Veins

The Cutting-Edge Procedure can Reduce a Variety of Symptoms and Improve Vein Appearance

Dallas, TX (April 16, 2018) – The doctors at Precision Vascular & Interventional recently announced they incorporated Varithena® (polidocanol injectable foam) into the growing list of superior vein treatment options for their patients. Varithena is a non-surgical prescription medicine many believe can be a game-changer when it comes to treating varicose veins, specifically in combating the symptoms of heaviness, achiness, swelling, throbbing and itching.

“Precision VIR is delighted to provide patients with this non-surgical option,” Dr. Danny Chan said on behalf of himself, Dr. Jaryd Stein, and their associate vein specialists. “We have been specially trained in using Varithena. Treatment is minimally-invasive—which means no incision is required.”

Dr. Chan added, “The Varithena procedure usually takes less than one hour, and patients may resume light activities as quickly as the same day of treatment.”

More About Varicose Veins and Varithena

Varicose veins are enlarged bulging veins usually found above the surface of the skin on the legs and are a telltale sign of vein disease, where vein walls and valves have become weakened and eventually interrupt normal blood flow. These veins can range from the most common spider and varicose veins to skin breakdown and venous ulcers. More than 20 million Americans suffer from vein disease or venous disorders.

Sadly, vein disease does not cure itself and can get worse if left untreated. Luckily, there are a variety of treatment options available for patients with venous conditions, including Varithena, Sclerotherapy, ClosureFast, and Microphlebectomy.

Varithena (polidocanol injectable foam) is the latest option. It is administered through a catheter or by direct injection into the malfunctioning vein. The foam fills the desired section of the vein, and the diseased vein collapses. Blood flow then shifts to healthier veins nearby. This procedure does not require incisions. While the doctor usually numbs the injection site, no additional anesthesia is required.

Varithena treats a wide range of varicose veins in the GSV system, including:

• Tortuous (twisted) veins

• Veins above and below the knee

• Veins with small, medium, and large diameters

• Veins previously treated with other methods

Varithena® is a registered trademark of Provensis Ltd, a BTG International group company.

Italy bridge designer warned in 1979 of risk of corrosion

Aug 20, 2018

ROME — The Italian engineer who designed the Genoa bridge that collapsed and killed dozens warned four decades ago that it would require constant maintenance to remove rust given the effects of corrosion from sea air and pollution on the concrete. RAI state television broadcast excerpts Sunday of the report that the late engineer Riccardo Morandi penned in 1979, 12 years after the bridge bearing his name was inaugurated in Genoa. The Associated Press downloaded the English-language report from an engineering news portal. At the time of writing, Morandi said there was already a "well-known loss of superficial chemical resistance...

Venezuelans jittery ahead of sudden economic reforms

Aug 20, 2018

CARACAS, Venezuela — Residents across Venezuela's capital spent a nervous weekend bracing for dramatic measures that President Nicolas Maduro has announced to rescue a downward-spiraling economy, including a more-than-3,000 percent hike in the minimum wage. The changes start to kick in Monday with the introduction of a new currency that lops five zeros off the country's fast-depreciating bills. Maduro says he'll also raise gasoline prices to international levels — a combination of measures critics say will only make things worse. Opposition leaders seized on tension among residents, calling for a nationwide strike and protest Tuesday. They hope to draw masses...
