Varicose Veins

Varicose Veins are large bulging veins in the legs that can cause many different types of symptoms.

You may inherit a tendency to develop varicose veins from a parent. Women who have had multiple children and obese persons are at a higher risk.

Symptoms:

– May be absent

– Pain, itching, swelling, burning, leg heaviness or tiredness, skin discoloration.

– Sometimes, varicose veins clot and become painful, hot, hard and discolored. This is called phlebitis, an uncomfortable but temporary condition that will get better on its own in 2-3 months.

– Bleeding

– Skin tears or ulceration indicate a very severe case.

Causes:

When you walk, muscles in your leg squeeze the veins and help blood flow back into the heart. In normal veins, a series of valves assist this process. With varicose veins and with a related condition called chronic venous insufficiency, poorly functioning valves allow the blood to pool in the lower leg and cause symptoms.

Treatments:

– Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT)

– Surgical

– Radiofrequency (RF)

– Sclerotherapy

– Ablation Therapy (laser, radiofrequency, or mechanical injection)
