Dr. Pizzamiglio and Dr. Casoni: Pioneers in Vascular Angiology at Quirónsalud Marbella Hospital

Dr. Pizzamiglio and Dr. Casoni are leading specialists in Vascular Angiology at Quirónsalud Marbella Hospital. They are at the forefront of understanding and treating venous vascular pathology, a condition that arises when veins fail to properly transport blood back to the heart for filtration. This malfunction leads to waste products remaining in the circulatory system, progressively worsening the patient’s health.

High Prevalence of Venous Vascular Pathology

Venous vascular pathology is highly prevalent, with chronic venous insufficiency-related diseases affecting over 50% of the population. The majority of patients are adults over the age of 60, and the number of cases is expected to increase in the coming years due to an aging population, explains Dr. Paolo Casoni, a specialist in Angiology and Vascular Surgery at Quirónsalud Marbella Hospital.

Unrecognized Circulatory Problems

Interestingly, a significant percentage of cases related to circulatory problems go unnoticed or are dismissed by patients as a mere cosmetic issue. Dr. Casoni points out that 30% of patients who consulted their doctor about visible veins (spider veins) were actually experiencing the tip of an iceberg, a symptom of a larger problem that could lead to varicose veins, phlebitis, or thrombosis.

Comprehensive Patient Care

Dr. Casoni advocates for a “comprehensive and complete” approach when diagnosing and assessing each patient’s health. He explains that patients with phlebopathy often have other affected organs or functions such as the skin, heart, or metabolism. All patients with edematous limbs or swollen legs may have underlying metabolic or cardiac problems, but also insufficiency of the venomuscular pump that deserves to be studied.

Expert Team at Quirónsalud Marbella Hospital

Dr. Casoni is part of the expert team at the Angiology and Vascular Surgery Service at Quirónsalud Marbella Hospital, led by Dr. Fernando Gallardo. With 40 years of professional experience, they are well-equipped to diagnose and treat the most complicated cases. In addition to his clinical work, Dr. Casoni also teaches and trains doctors in the specialty, including Dr. Pizzamiglio, with whom he forms an effective medical-scientific duo.

Specialized Approach to Phlebology

The Angiology and Vascular Surgery Service is known for promoting a specialized approach, elevating the medical field of phlebology to a higher level. Their primary goal is to perform less aggressive treatments, especially in surgery. In terms of diagnosis, their efforts are focused on increasingly precise anatomical and hemodynamic studies.
