The Backcountry Screens for a Silent Killer
by Charles Carr for the North County Times July 14, 2012
Hop in, buckle up. When it comes to the subject of vascular health, the ’70s catchphrase “different strokes for different folks” takes on a very different and somewhat ominous meaning.
“Age, heredity, race, and lifestyle all play a part when it comes to assessing risk of stroke,” said Jordan Keefover, director of practice development for the San Diego Vascular Center. “That’s why we recommend that every person over the age of 27 get a stroke screening — especially those with a family history of the disease.”
The Vascular Center is partnering with Life Line Screening to bring a mobile facility staffed with state of the art testing equipment and medical professionals several backcountry (and ‘frontcountry’) locations over the next few weeks.
“These screenings are important because stroke strikes every 45 seconds in the U.S. and claims a life every three minutes,” said Dr. Anatoly Bulkin, a board-certified vascular surgeon at SDVC in a press release. Stroke is considered a “silent killer” in that half of all victims exhibit no symptoms.
A comprehensive series of tests will be offered for $149 and take less than an hour. A portion of the fee goes back to the facility hosting the screening.
“If the patient requires medical follow-up as a result of the screening,” Keefover noted, “Vascular Center doctors partner with dozens of insurance providers to provide needed care.”
For readers in the Ramona/Julian areas there will be a screening at 9 a.m. July 20 at the Poway Elks Lodge No. 2543 (13219 Poway Road in Poway). Fallbrook and Bonsall folks can get checked out at 9 a.m. July 25 at Zion Lutheran Church (1405 E. Fallbrook St. in Fallbrook). And Valley Center/Pauma residents can run down the hill to a screening at 9 a.m. July 27 at Community Lutheran Church (3575 E. Valley Parkway in Escondido).

Men Wait Too Long to Treat Vascular Symptoms
SDVC Increases Awareness for Men’s Health Week June 11-17
SAN DIEGO, CA –June 4, 2012—By the age of 60, 42 percent of men will experience bulging varicose veins and many of them wait too long before getting treatment. In honor of Men’s Health Week this June 11-17, San Diego Vascular Center (SDVC) is offering free consultations and screenings to men who call to make an appointment by June 17.
Varicose and spider veins can be symptoms of vascular disease. The fatality rate due to vascular disease is almost equal to heart disease and higher than cancer.
“Women tend to get their varicose and spider veins treated earlier because they feel they’re unsightly,” said Dr. Anatoly Bulkin, MD, Board Certified Vascular Surgeon at SDVC. “Therefore, if there is a more serious issue, we tend to catch it earlier in women—men wait too long.”
Men with vein issues should proactively get screened for vascular conditions—especially those who are 55 years or older, as well as any individual with diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol or a family history of atherosclerotic and circulatory problems.
“Wives and daughters – this is the time to get the man in your life to stop living in pain and explore treatment options,” said Dr. Bulkin. “If they wait, it is much more difficult to treat.”
Varicose veins affect the quality of life for so many men—treatment can be available without hospitalization or disrupting one’s life.
“It’s important to understand the severity of this disease and the preventive measures available,” said Dr. Bulkin. “Early detection can save lives.”
SDVC provides convenient, cost-effective and fast treatment options. Patients can be back to their active lifestyle the very same day as treatment. SDVC is conveniently located off the I-15 in Escondido. Appointments for screenings can be scheduled by calling (760) 739-7666.
