Wound Care Q & A

Why do I need radiology services for open wounds?

When you have wounds that aren’t healing properly, the experienced radiologists at Vein and Vascular Solutions NYC can use the latest diagnostic technologies to assess the severity of your wound.

The radiology team also uses diagnostic imaging tests to identify the factors that may cause slow-healing wounds, such as:

  • Neuropathy
  • Peripheral arterial disease
  • Peripheral venous disease

Using the results of your imaging tests, your Vein and Vascular Solutions NYC provider can create a treatment plan that addresses both your wound and the underlying medical issues that interfere with wound healing.

When should I seek treatment for an open wound?

If you have an open wound from a fall or accidental cut that isn’t healing within 2-3 weeks or seems to worsen over time, you should seek a diagnostic evaluation at Vein and Vascular Solutions NYC as soon as possible.

Untreated open wounds increase your risk for serious complications, including infections that can become life-threatening. It’s also possible that you develop long-term issues that affect the health of your skin, including the premature death of tissue.

How are underlying vascular conditions treated?

The Vein and Vascular Solutions NYC uses image-guided technologies to treat underlying vascular issues, including blood vessel blockages, without major surgery. The medical team offers on-site minimally invasive angioplasty procedures that use a small inflated balloon to widen blood vessels and improve blood flow.

You may also be a candidate for laser ablation treatments, which use laser energy to destroy damaged blood vessels and force blood to re-route to other, healthier blood vessels nearby.

Improved blood flow can help improve the speed and efficiency of your natural wound healing processes.

What are the benefits of wound care services?

When wounds don’t heal properly, you’re at increased risk for side effects like serious infections, permanent tissue damage, and noticeable scars.

The radiology team at Vein and Vascular Solutions NYC not only care for the open wound with dressings and medications, but they also use imaging technology to identify the root cause of your wound.

By understanding your underlying vascular issues, the doctors can improve the efficiency of wound healing and prevent major health complications that can result from vascular disease.
