Examinations & Preparations

An echocardiogram (also called an echo) is a type of ultrasound test that uses high-pitched sound waves that are sent through a device called a transducer. The device picks up echoes of the sound waves as they bounce off the different parts of your heart. These echoes are turned into moving pictures of your heart that can be seen on a video screen.

Carotid doppler ultrasound is a non-invasive test that uses sound waves to measure the flow of blood through the large carotid arteries that supply blood to the brain. These arteries can become narrowed due to arteriosclerosis or other causes, and this can lead to transient ischemic attack (mini-stroke) or cerebral vascular accident (stroke). The carotid doppler test can help doctors determine stroke risk and the need for preventive measures.

An ultrasound of the abdominal aorta is a non-invasive, painless test that uses high-frequency sound waves to image the "aorta," the main blood vessel leading away from the heart.

Lower extremity venous duplex is an ultrasound evaluation of the blood flow in the veins in the legs and is used to detect blood clots or obstructions to the venous blood flow. If there is a blood clot in a vein or obstruction that causes reduced blood flow through the vein, the patient could experience pain and swelling.

Upper extremity venous duplex is an ultrasound evaluation of the blood flow in the veins in the arms and is used to detect blood clots or obstructions to the venous blood flow.  If there is a blood clot in a vein or obstruction that causes reduced blood flow through the vein, the patient could experience pain and swelling.

Renal artery duplex ultrasound is used to evaluate the arteries of the kidney for blocked or reduced flow that could cause cause hypertension (high blood pressure) or kidney failure . Renal artery blockages are the most common correctable cause of hypertension. Long-standing, untreated renal artery disease is also an important cause of kidney failure.

The bypass graft surveillance is used to evaluate patients who have had vein bypass surgery in their lower extremities. The study examines whether the veins are functioning properly or if they have any narrowed areas. If a narrowing is found, the bypass vein can be repaired before the vein becomes entirely blocked.

Pulse volume recording, or PVR (also called plethysmography) is a test that measures blood flow in the leg arteries. PVR can be used to diagnose PAD in the legs, determine how severe the disease is, and find the general location of the blockage. The PVR test is fast and painless, and does not require entering the body.

Endovenous laser therapy (EVLT) and radiofrequency ablation (RFA) are new, minimally invasive percutaneous endovenous techniques for ablation of the incompetent great saphenous vein (GSV). We have performed both procedures at the Mayo Clinic during two different consecutive periods. At the time of this report, no single-institution report has compared RFA with EVLT in the management of saphenous reflux. To evaluate early results, we reviewed saphenous closure rates and complications of both procedures.
