Surgery – Most common form of treatment modality and almost cures the problem with no reccurence .various Surgical options include -

Sclerotherapy - In which the sclerosant or foam is injected into the dilated vein under ultrasound guidance which slowly closes the superficial veins

Laser treatment (EVLT) – This is most commonly performed surgery in which laser fiber is passed under usg guidance until the dilated segment of varicose veins and short bursts of heat with laser is done along the vein which causes venous closure .This is most safest procedure with almost no complications .

Venaseal (Glue therapy ) - In this procedure , in the place of laser - Glue is used through the catheter introduced inside the vein which closes the venous lumen by sticking it together .

Catheter-based procedures using radiofrequency - This procedure is the treatment for larger varicose veins. Similar to laser treatment heat waves produced by radiofrequency seals and shuts down the dilated vein.

High ligation and vein stripping (Open surgery ) - This procedure involves tying off a dilated vein before it joins a deep vein and removing the entire dilated vein(Stripping ) through small cuts .

varicose veins

Varicose veins are very common. Around 1/3 of all adults have varicose veins. They are more common in people assigned female at birth than in people assigned male at birth.

Most often, varicose veins develop on the lower half of your body, usually on your calves, ankles and feet.

Usually, varicose veins aren’t dangerous and don’t cause long-term health problems. Most people with the condition are concerned with the way varicose veins look. They may experience discomfort but don’t develop complications.

Most of the time, varicose veins that happen while you’re pregnant go away on their own within two or three weeks after you have your baby. For other people, varicose veins may keep coming back after treatment.

Varicose veins can cause ulcers (open sores), bleeding and skin discoloration if left untreated. Severe varicose veins may be a sign of chronic venous insufficiency.This condition affects your veins’ ability to pump blood to your heart.

People who have varicose veins may be more likely to develop blood clots. It’s important to tell your vascular surgeon about varicose veins. Your provider should evaluate and monitor you for clotting disorders such as Superficial thrombophlebitis /Deep vein thrombosis (DVT)/Pulmonary embolism.

Although treatments are effective, varicose veins can return. They’re more likely to come back in people who become pregnant after treatment. You have a higher chance of varicose veins reappearing if you have obesity or have a sedentary lifestyle.
