DVT Treatment with Dr. Farshad Malekmehr Provides a Real Solution to a Painful, Potentially Deadly Problem

Insufficient medical care of blood clots in the extremities is prevalent, but Dr. Malekmehr of the California Institute for Deep Venous Thrombosis takes an active approach

LOS ANGELES, March 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- A blood clot in the lower part of the body, or deep vein thrombosis, is a well-known but often misunderstood syndrome despite its potentially grave consequences. Fortunately, widely respected board certified cardiovascular surgeon Dr. Farshad Malekmehr of the California Institute for Deep Venous Thrombosis has been providing patients with highly effective, up-to-date treatments that save lives and prevent painful and potentially debilitating outcomes.

Many non-specialists are under-informed and may tend to rely too much on blood thinning medications, which are often insufficient. Dr. Malekmehr's proven approach to DVT treatment takes an active approach to preventing the full range of complications, including painful postphlebitic syndrome and potentially deadly pulmonary embolisms. Patients who may have DVT should educate themselves on the options and consider a consultation with a specialist.

Blood clots in the lower extremities have a number of causes, and there are many risk factors that can contribute to the likelihood of DVT, including pregnancy, obesity, fractures, trauma, smoking and infections, among many others. Whatever the cause, choosing the correct treatment – and therefore the correct practitioner to handle it – is crucial. A highly trained medical specialist with an intense background in cardiac, vascular, and thoracic surgery, Dr. Malekmehr has been helping patients of all ages at the Los Angeles-based California Institute for Deep Venous Thrombosis.

Dr. Malekmehr is also highly experienced in the treatment of potentially life-threatening embolisms, which occur when blood clots travel upwards in the body, sometimes landing in the key artery supplying blood to the lungs and leading to a potentially deadly pulmonary embolism. He is one of the West Coast's leading authorities in the treatment and prevention of embolisms of all types.

Moreover, Dr. Malekmehr has been at the leading edge of all the latest therapies used to treat DVT. These include the use of an inferior vena cava filter, a metallic filtering device that stops embolisms before they start by preventing blood clots from rising upwards in the body. Mechanical thrombectomy is another surgical approach that actually removes a thrombus (clot) from the body. This is a treatment that works rapidly and which has improved the length and quality of life for a rapidly growing number of patients.

Dr. Malekmehr believes that more conservative treatments may sometimes have their place. However, an insufficiently proactive approach and too much reliance on pharmaceuticals can lead to serious and even deadly complications. More often, however, it can lead to postphlebetic syndrome, marked by pain, itching, varicose veins, skin discolorations, and ulcers. The good news for patients is that the care of a highly involved board-certified physician can help to ensure truly excellent outcomes.

Dr. Malekmehr and his outstanding medical staff at the California Institute for Deep Venous Thrombosis are here to provide the absolute highest level of care in the treatment of DVT. They know that the easiest path may sometimes also be the wrong path and they are ready to do what is necessary to preserve both the quality and length of patients' lives.
