Vein Experts in Boynton Beach: Vein Disease and Embolism

July 5th, 2014. Boynton Beach, FL. South Palm Cardiovascular Associates is publishing a new article discussing the alarming link between a vein disease called deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and pulmonary embolism (PE). According to the vein experts in Boynton Beach-based center, the biggest problem with DVT is that most of the people who have it – and thus are at risk of dying from a pulmonary embolism – don’t know it.

Dr. Michael Metzger, Dr. Andres Ruiz, Dr. Gustavo Cardenas, and Dr. Charles Harring III, Boynton Beach vein specialists at South Palm Cardiovascular Associates, say, “Many of the dangers of this ‘hidden killer’ disease could be avoided by having a venous health screening. It takes only about an hour, and if DVT is present, it can quickly and easily be treated.” They want patients to understand that a venous health screening could literally save their lives.

South Palm Cardiovascular Associates feels that if the public becomes more aware of this link between vein disease and embolism, they will be more likely to have a vein health screening. Interested readers can find more information about this and other vein health topics at:
