What is Edema?

Edema is tissue fluid in the skin and subcutaneous (fat) and is measured by the amount of skin indentation left with digital pressure. It is associated with venous reflux disease. It is also associated with other conditions such as congestive heart failure, renal insufficiency and failure and other systemic disease. Dr. Karamanoukian is a cardiovascular surgeon who can help exclude other sources or etiologies of ankle edema.

Your extensive consultation with Dr. Karamanoukian will include history taking, clinical examination and Duplex venous study of the lower extremities. This will help determine the cause of anke and leg edema in better than 99% of cases.
