On the surface of the legs or close to it, varicose veins are dilated, convoluted veins. The majority of leg varicose veins never receive treatment. For those who are still, surgery, most frequently tying and stripping, remains the cornerstone of care. Even while most patients are happy with the results and the procedure is often quite successful, it is far from ideal.


It generally calls for a general anesthetic and is costly, time-consuming, and painful at best. While recovering, patients require a lot of time off from work and leisure activities. Scars are unavoidable, and at least 10% of patients experience varicose veins and recurrent problems following surgery.


Several cutting-edge interventional radiology methods have been developed recently to replace surgery for this common problem and provide a successful solution for all veins, even those that look small and just cause aesthetic concerns, for which many patients are opposed to having an operation. Three fundamental techniques are being applied from the vein centre, and even for difficult recurrent varicose veins, all of them are producing incredibly great results.


When the venous blood flows fails to function normally, varicose and spider veins develop. Venous insufficiency, which can take many different forms when the usual processes of venous blood flow from the legs fail, develops. At its mildest, venous insufficiency results in spider veins, which are primarily aesthetic issues only, but they can be accompanied by discomfort.


Additionally, somewhat deeper blue veins that are a little bit bigger and known as reticular veins may develop. Common varicose veins, which are caused by more severe failure, can lead to skin abnormalities and ulcers in 1-2% of those over 65. All of them are the result of high pressure building up in veins with thin walls, which are only intended to sustain modest pressures. Causes of Venous Insufficiency


  1. Deep vein blockage
  2. Ineffective muscle pump
  3. Valve is defective


Deep venous thrombosis (DVT), which occurs for instance in the economy plus syndrome, or tumors in the pelvis that compress the veins can also result in deep vein blockage. It also results in valve failure if it continues.






A vein centre detects through a known as venous Doppler ultrasonography of the leg. Doppler ultrasonography is a minimally invasive technique that uses sound waves to analyse blood flow through vein valves. An ultrasound of the leg can be used to find blood clots.


In this test, medical professional rubs a tiny, hand-held instrument (transducer) on the skin over the body part being checked. The transducer is roughly the size of a bar of soap. The monitor shows the findings after receiving pictures of the legs’ veins from the transducer.




The best varicose vein treatments are minimally invasive and supported by precise medical imaging, such as color duplex ultrasound. It is commonly acknowledged that proper mapping of the anatomy and physiology using color duplex ultrasound scanning is necessary for effective varicose vein therapy.


It is critical to look for valve failure and reflux in even the most innocent spiders because the care of any kind of venous issue that fails to recognise and address underlying reflux will be unsuccessful. Although there could be some short-term improvement, the issue will return and worsen. It is preferable if the scan is performed by the doctor who will be doing the therapy during your appointment. In doing so, he can pinpoint the best course of action.


Compression stockings


The initial course of action is frequently to wear compression stockings all day. The stockings’ leg compression enhances blood flow via the muscles and veins of the legs, resulting in healthier circulation. By kind in vein centre compression levels differ. Compression stockings are often available at pharmacies and medical supply stores. If varicose veins are the cause of your problems, you may also be able to get insurance coverage for prescription-strength stockings.


What happens after the treatment?


You could feel a little tautness as the vein diminishes over the coming weeks. You could have some bruising, although it probably won’t be too bad. After 4-6 weeks, an assessment is requested of you. The major vein is examined to determine if it is blocked as expected.


Even though they are frequently minor and symptomless, any residual varicose veins can be easily removed once reflux has been treated with an injection of a foam sclerosant or by performing micro avulsions while under local anesthesia. Following such therapy in the thread vein removal, you must wear compression stockings for two weeks.




Because these approaches are relatively new, not all potential issues may yet have been discovered, even if very few have been reported. Deep vein thrombosis, deep vein damage, skin burns, nerve injuries, and laser eye injuries are all potential issues. All of these are either extremely uncommon in practice or have never been documented.
