Varicose Veins Treatment

Varicose veins appear blue, enlarged and folded under the skin. Initially, swelling may occur as a result of the dilation of the veins, and although this condition is mostly visual in the first years, it may start to cause pain later. Swelling occurs in the legs if venous insufficiency develops. If there is a clot in the varicose veins (thrombophlebitis), pain, swelling and redness are observed in the legs. Varicosities are more common in women than men. The incidence of this condition increases with ageing. Pregnancy, obesity, standing for a long time, being a woman, birth control pills and hormone treatments, wearing tight clothes, constipation, ageing and genetic factors may result in varicose veins caused by defects in the valves of the veins. Progressed cases result in severe pain in the leg, inflammation of the vein, rupture of the varicose veins, clots in the varicose veins and thrombus.

 

Removing varicose veins is the most conventional method, but it is both cumbersome and takes a long time to heal. Correcting the varix by introducing foam into the vein is another method of vascular sclerotherapy. However, there is a high probability of recurrence in this method. In the laser treatment method, a catheter is inserted into the vessel, a beam is sent from the laser device, and the vessel is burned. In the radiofrequency method, radio waves are sent to the vein with the help of a catheter. In this method, heat is formed to burn the vein. In this procedure, only local anesthesia is used, and patients can be discharged on the same day.
