What is Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are enlarged, tortuous, swollen veins, raised above the surface of the skin. They can occur anywhere but more common on legs because standing and walking upright increases the pressure in the veins of the lower body. Arteries carry blood from your heart out to your extremities, delivering oxygen deep into the tissue. Veins then return the de-oxygenated blood (now blue) back to your heart to be re-circulated. To return this blood to the heart, your leg veins must work against gravity. Small, one-way valves in the veins open to allow blood to flow upward, toward the heart, and then close to prevent it from flowing backward. Varicose veins occur when the valves in superficial leg veins malfunction. When this occurs, the valve may be unable to close, allowing blood that should be moving towards the heart to flow backward (called venous reflux). Blood collects in your lower veins causing them to enlarge and become varicose.

Causes for Varicose Veins

The causes of varicose veins vary from person to person. The major reason for the cause of varicose veins could be due to weak or damaged valves. Some of the causes that can contribute to the risk of developing varicose veins are listed below.

  • Heredity
  • Obesity
  • Lack of Exercise.
  • Jobs requiring prolonged sitting or standing.
  • High-fat
  • Low-fiber diet
  • Surgery or trauma
  • Infectious disease
  • Pregnancy
  • Hormonal medication
  • Age over 40

Varicose Veins Signs and Symptoms

While visual appearance is a sign of varicose veins, many patients may experience one or more of the following leg symptoms:

  • Bumpy, swollen twisted veins raising over the skin surface of legs.
  • Aching, heavy legs (often worse at night and after exercise).
  • Lack of Exercise.
  • Appearance of spider veins in the affected leg.
  • Jobs requiring prolonged sitting or standing.
  • Ankle swelling.Ankle swelling.
  • A brownish-blue shiny skin discoloration near the affected veins.
  • Redness, dryness, and itchiness of areas of skin.
  • Cramps Minor injuries to the area may bleed more than normal and/or take a long time to heal.
  • Non healing venous ulcers over legs mostly on ankles.
  • Chronic venous insufficiency.

Endovenous Laser Treatment

Endovenous Laser Treatment for the elimination of varicose veins is quickly becoming the gold-standard in the treatment of varicose veins. Endovenous Laser Treatment uses laser energy, which is simply a highly concentrated beam of light. Medical lasers work by delivering this light energy to the targeted tissue with extreme precision, so as not to affect the surrounding tissue. Lasers have proven their safety and effectiveness through years of use in all types of medical procedures, from eye surgery to dermatology. In the hands of a skilled physician, lasers offer far less risk for complications than conventional surgery.

In Endovenous Laser Treatment, a thin fiber is inserted into the damaged vein through a very small entry point in the skin. A laser light is emitted through the fiber, as the fiber is pulled back through the vein, it delivers just the right amount of energy. The targeted tissue reacts with the light energy, causing the vein to close and seal shut. The veins that are closed are superficial veins that handle less than five percent of the body's blood flow. The blood is automatically routed to other, healthy veins. Our physicians use a jacketed fiber, which prevents any contact between the fiber and the vein wall. This prevents much of the pain and bruising that is often associated with the more conventional method of ligation and stripping. Some patients may experience temporary soreness or some slight swelling, which can be treated effectively with over-the-counter, non-aspirin pain relievers and typically subsides within the first five days.

The procedure is minimally invasive and requires no general anesthesia. Only local anesthetic is used to numb the area where the physician is working. Patients are encouraged to walk immediately after the procedure and can resume normal activities the same day.

What can happen if you don't get them treated They are irreversible and would advance to next stage in no time, form non healing painful ulcers and in long standing patients may cause development of carcinoma. Varicose veins should be removed completely. Otherwise pooling of blood in legs might cause venous insufficiency and may lead ultimately to heart failure
