Posted by AmandaTom on June 18th, 2013
Many a person will tend to ignore the development of varicose veins if they do not get symptoms, or if they dismiss the symptoms they to feel as stemming from some other cause. That’s easy to do, as the symptoms of varicose veins ar: swelling in the lower members (especially ankles and feet), feelings of tiredness, burning, itching or aching in the lower members, which may accentuate after standing for long periods of time, and, on the more serious side, skin damage, leg swelling and the development of varicose ulcers. It might be easy to dismiss those little twisted, unsightly veins as nothing more than a cosmetic issue, but you should know better. This is a progressive disease, and so the longer you delay having it looked at the more it will advance and the more serious its symptoms will become, so much so that you’ll need to start considering surgical treatments. Read on to find out more about different surgical techniques utilized to treat varicose veins, like radiofrequência para varizes and laser para varizes.
You shouldn’t be alarmed, as it takes a relatively long time (depending from patient to patient) for varicose veins to progress and worsen, so if you’re vigilent, you’ll have plenty of time to seek out medical attention and apply clinical therapies, to prevent the need to go under the knife, so to speak. Clinical treatments for varicose include, but are not limited to the following: support (or compression) stockings, exercise programs, leg elevation, a range of medications which can be purchased commercially and weight loss, where necessary.
If you’re past the point of getting clinical treatments for varicose veins, your doctor will have a discussion with you regarding all available options for surgical treatment of varicose veins. It’s a good idea to be educated about the current surgical techniques available—if your doctor isn’t experienced in all of them, look for a different doctor, because you want the choice of treatment to reflect the best option for you, not the limitation of your doctor’s skills.
Phlebectomy is the classic surgical technique used to treat varicose veins. Micro incisions are made into the patient’s skin in order to remove the damaged varicose veins completely. The recovery period can be painful, depending on the number of cuts, and it can take up to two weeks.
Sclerotherapy is used to treat varicose veins by inserting various sclerosing substances into the vein. Ultrasound-guided Foam Sclerotherapy is the most innovative Sclerotherapy technique, chemicals are mixed with air or another gas to produce a foam inside the vein, closing it off. The technique is minimally invasive and it can even be performed without anesthesia.
The most advanced surgical techniques used to treat varicose veins are radiofrequência para varizes and laser para varizes. Both techniques of radiofrequência para varizes and laser para varizes work on the same principle, of closing the vein off by applying heat. Radiofrequência para varizes uses radiofrequency to generate the heat necessary, while laser para varizes uses laser energy to produce the heat necessary to close off the vein.
Treatment options for varicose veins will depend according to the particularities of each case, so ask your medical professional about radiofrequência para varizes and laser para varizes to see if you could benefit from these procedures.
