Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are twisted, enlarged (dilated) veins near the surface of the skin. They are most common in the legs and ankles. They usually aren’t serious, but they can sometimes lead to other problems.

Varicose veins are caused by weakened valves and veins in your legs. Normally, one-way valves in your veins keep blood flowing from your legs up toward your heart. When these valves do not work as they should, blood collects in your legs, and pressure builds up. The veins become weak, large, visible and twisted.

Varicose veins are common and usually aren’t a sign of a more serious problem. They may cause leg pain, swelling and in rare cases ankle skin ulcerations and/or bleeding.  If you have those symptoms, you may need a procedure. The veins can be treated for cosmetic purposes as well, even if they do not cause any significant symptom.

There are multiple current and modern interventional options for varicose veins treatment. The list includes:

1- Sclerotherapy

2- Faom Ablation like Varithena

3- Laser or Radiofrequency ablation of major veins

4- Surgical micro phlebectomy and/or stripping.
