Reproductive Health Q & A

Vascular Access Centers

How do vascular conditions affect reproductive health?

Problems with blood flow to the reproductive organs can cause a variety of health problems in men and women. The experts at Vascular Access Center of West Orange diagnose and treat several reproductive issues, including:

  • Pelvic congestion syndrome
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Erectile dysfunction (ED)

 

These problems can cause pain or negatively affect your quality of life, but Vascular Access Center offers effective treatments to improve your romantic relationships and overall well-being.

How do you treat female reproductive problems?

The team of doctors at Vascular Access Center of West Orange is highly skilled in treating female reproductive problems, such as uterine fibroids and pelvic congestion syndrome.

Uterine fibroids

Fibroids are noncancerous growths that develop in your uterus. The team at Vascular Access Center of West Orange treat uterine fibroids with a procedure called embolization. Uterine fibroid embolization involves injections that cut off blood supply to the fibroids, causing them to shrink over time. Embolization is a safe and effective alternative to hysterectomy for fibroid treatment.

Pelvic congestion syndrome

Pelvic congestion syndrome happens when you develop enlarged varicose veins in your ovaries and pelvic area. This causes swelling that often leads to chronic pelvic pain.

The doctors at Vascular Access Center of West Orange treat pelvic congestion with minimally invasive ovarian vein embolization. They insert a flexible tube (catheter) into a large vein in your thigh, then move it to the treatment area. They use the catheter to apply medications that block the vein and relieve painful pressure.

What is erectile dysfunction (ED)?

It’s normal for a man to experience difficulty getting and sustaining an erection on occasion, but if it’s happening frequently and affecting your relationship or sense of self, you may be suffering from ED.

ED is a common problem in men with many different causes, both psychological and physical. Some men with vascular disease may experience ED due to a blockage or decrease in blood flow to the pudendal artery, which is the artery that supplies blood to the penis. If your ED is due to vascular issue the team of experts at Vascular Access Center of West Orange may be able to perform an angioplasty procedure to improve blood flow to your penis.
