Hand Arm Vibration Syndrome (HAVS)
HAVS is the new name for a condition that used to be called Vibration White Finger (VWF). HAVS is a complex condition with musculoskeletal, neurological and vascular components and is a secondary type of Raynaud’s phenomenon. Due to this complexity coupled with many other differential diagnoses processing similar/the same symptoms diagnosis is often quite challenging. Major/common symptoms experienced include blanching (not blotching), numbness, tingling and pain. At Independent Vascular Services we offer a complete assessment service for the vascular component of HAVS using state of the art ultrasound machines (Phillips IU22) and laser imagers (Moor FLPI-2).
IVS works closely with medico-legal experts, vascular surgeons, vascular scientists and product specialists and we have recently produced a comprehensive non-invasive assessment tool to reliably diagnose HAVS.
