We treat varicose veins at any stage!
It is hard to imagine, but a small venous network, which may not bother you in any way, and a venous ulcer are different stages of the same disease.
Varicose veins, or chronic venous insufficiency, is a condition where the veins lose their ability to efficiently deliver blood from the organs to the heart. Normally, the blood in the veins is prevented from falling down under the influence of gravity by venous valves – structures that allow it to pass in only one direction – up.
In people suffering from varicose veins, the veins expand and the valves gradually stop working properly. Because of this, the blood moves slowly, stagnates, which can lead to the formation of blood clots.
Varicose veins are manifested by external changes in the form of a venous network, “knots”, swellings, a feeling of fatigue in the legs, and in the later stages – a change in sensitivity and the development of ulcers. The most dangerous aspect of this disease is the formation of blood clots. In addition to the fact that they disrupt the nutrition of tissues where they were formed, they can also migrate with the blood flow to the lungs, causing PE – thromboembolism of the pulmonary artery, a life-threatening consequence of varicose veins.
How to treat varicose veins?
First, there is no need to procrastinate and wait for one stage to turn into another. The earlier treatment is started, the more successful it will be.
At the very first stages, vascular stars are removed with the help of a laser. It is an almost painless non-invasive procedure (ie, no injections or incisions – only external exposure).
Next, if the vascular mesh is too large for the first option, sclerotherapy is used – a special substance is injected directly into the dilated vein and “glues” it.
For the next stage, endovenous laser coagulation is used – a procedure when, under local anesthesia, a laser light guide is introduced into the dilated vein and “seals” it. On the same day, the patient can safely go home.
The Sumy clinic of laser medicine offers all these treatment methods and has been successfully overcoming varicose veins at any stage for many years!
