Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - June 29, 1970, Lethbridge, Alberta 12 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Monday, 29, 1970 THE DOCTOR'S MAILBAG Circulation 01' Blood Important In Piilebitis By (J. miANDSTADT, M.D. Wrillcn'for Ncwspujii-r Enterprises Assn. Q What is meant by "vas- cular A Tlie term is not used by itself. Cardiovascular disease refers to a coronary heart at- tack; cerebrovascular disease to a stroke caused by a brain hemorrhage or blocking of an artery in the brain; and per- ipheral vascular disease to har- dening of the arteries, clotting (Buergcr's disease) or arterial spasms (Raynaud's disease) in the extremities. Q IVhnt causes phlebitis? Can it be cured? A Phlebitis is an inflma- mation in the veins, usually in the legs. It may be caused by an infection or by abnormal slowing of the circulation. It may follow childbirth or an op- eration. After the acute stage, during which bed rest is Mi- vised, you should wear an elas- tic bandage. Don't cross your legs while sitting but keep them elevated on a foot stool. When standing you should wiggle your toes frequently to keep the blood circulating. In stubborn eases surgical removal of the clot may be necessary. Q _ How does a blood clot affect a person? A When it is present in an arterv, it impairs the circula- tion 'to the involved part. In most parts of the body (the heart and brain are notable ex- ceptions) the effect is slight be- cause a collateral circulation takes over. Q I have hail Bucrger's disease since 1966. What causes it? I take Cyclospasmol but it doesn't help. Is there any new treatment for this disease? A Smoking is a causative factor. The disease occurs al- most exclusively in men. Ex. perience with cyclandelate (cy- clospasmol) has been disap- pointing. All victims of Buer- ger's disease should do the fol- lowing exercises: While lying on a bed, elevate your legs on an inclined surface at about 45 degrees using an inverted chair for the support. Hold this posi- tion until your feet blanch com- pletely (about 45 then sit up and swing your legs over the side of the bed and wiggle your toes and ankles vigorously until they are Hush- ed (usually two or three min- Lie down and rest for six minutes. Repeat this cycle at least twice and run through these sessions three or four I limes a day. I Operation is advised when the [obstruction is limited to one segment of an artery in the leg.
