Varicose Veins Treatment & Procedures

In normal veins, tiny valves keep blood flowing toward the heart. But when those valves fail, the blood flows in the reverse direction (reflux). This causes pressure and pooling of blood inside the vein, resulting in dilation and bulging, or “varicose veins.”

Varicose veins are large and unappealing and can cause pain, inflammation, discomfort, burning, itching, swelling, bleeding ,leg tiredness and even open , slow healing skin wounds or skin ulcers .

People with varicose veins have also a high risk of developing blood clots in the deep leg veins ,which may become complicated with life threatening complications in the lungs called pulmonary emboli .

In normal veins, tiny valves keep blood flowing toward the heart. But when those valves fail, the blood leaks in the reverse direction (venous reflux). This causes pressure and pooling of blood inside the veins, resulting in dilation and bulging, or “varicose veins.”

The blood that is pooling in the leg veins contains waste material and low oxygen levels which are harmful to the tissues around these veins .

The main treatment of varicose veins is aimed at closing the leaking veins which have venous reflux and are the cause of the problem and either surgically removing the bulging varicose veins (microphlebectomy) or closing these varicose veins with special injections (liquid or foam sclerotherapy).
