Cutting-Edge DVT Treatment from Dr. Malekmehr Provides Relief

The realities of modern life can make people more susceptible to deep vein thrombosis, but the California Institute for Deep Venous Thrombosis offers effective solutions

LOS ANGELES, April 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Due to our sedentary modern lifestyle, deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a growing issue. DVT – a condition in which a person suffers from a blood clot in leg – is much more likely to occur if you're sitting still for a long time. With so many people sitting in front of television and computer monitors for both work and recreation, DVT is causing pain and anxiety for many people. In California, sedentary residents are as susceptible to deep vein thrombosis due to a lack of physical activity as anywhere else. However, we're also lucky to be near Dr. Farshad Malekmehr at the California Institute for Deep Venous Thrombosis, and his remarkable DVT treatment.

In nearly half of all cases, deep vein thrombosis occurs without any noticeable symptoms. Sometimes, though, the condition can cause significant pain in the leg. Specifically, symptoms of DVT can include:

  • Swelling in the affected leg
  • Pain in the leg
  • Warmth over the affected area
  • Changes in skin color

For individuals who have been known to suffer from blood clots, DVT can be a very serious issue. A blood clot that has formed in a vein can break loose, traveling through the bloodstream and lodging in the lungs leading to a blockage of blood flow. As a board-certified cardiovascular surgeon who specializes in treating patients with DVT and pulmonary embolisms, Dr. Malekmehr is keenly aware of the dangers posed, and he is uniquely qualified to treat patients who suffer from the malady.

The esteemed Dr. Malekmehr boasts medical experience that includes eight years of training in general surgery and trauma, as well as specialized training in cardiac, vascular and thoracic surgery. He garnered a wide breadth of experience while honing his surgical skill at the Children's Hospital of Michigan as well as at the Royal Brompton Hospital in London. That's why it should come as no surprise that Dr. Malekmehr is fully capable of providing world-class treatment.

At the California Institute for Deep Venous Thrombosis, treatment for DVT is often as simple as anticoagulation and blood thinners. However, in the event that surgery is necessary, patients will find some of the most effective, cutting-edge procedures offered anywhere. These include:

  • Anticoagulation, which prevents clots from occurring and decreases the chance of death from a pulmonary embolism
  • Mechanical thrombectomy, a revolutionary treatment that removes blood clots from the deep veins
  • Compression stockings, which are fitted to a patient's leg and provide pressure to veins in the lower extremities
  • Inferior vena cava filter, an IVC filter that is placed in the vena cava to prevent blood clot from traveling to the heart, causing a fatal pulmonary embolism

No matter what treatment is right for you, the meticulous skill and dedication of Dr. Malekmehr and his medical team will make all the difference. To schedule an appointment at the California Institute for Deep Venous Thrombosis, or for further information, please call 818-908-9752 or visit DVTinfo.com.

Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value...
