Changes in the leg veins are a widespread phenomenon in the population: Only about 10% show no abnormalities, 59%, however, at least spider veins or similar. The remaining 30% of the population have more severe symptoms of chronic venous disease, such as varicose veins, fluid retention or open legs. In addition, it is estimated that one out of every thousand adults suffer thrombosis each year, and more than 7,000 Germans die of pulmonary embolisms each year.
The doctors of KME use special ultrasound devices to examine the employees for abnormalities of the superficial and deep venous system and determine the individual risk of thrombosis. All examinations are painless and risk-free and do not burden the body. The examination is followed by a medical consultation.
