Varicose Vein

Varicose veins are twisted and enlarged veins. Any superficial vein may become varicose. However, the veins most commonly affected are those on the legs, as standing and walking upright increases the pressure in the veins of the lower body. Varicose veins and spider veins - a common, mild variation of varicose veins are simply a cosmetic concern for many people. For some, varicose veins can cause acute pain and discomfort. Sometimes varicose veins lead to more serious problems. The treatment may involve self-care measures or procedures by the doctor to close or remove the veins.

Introduction of Varicose Vein Glue

The most recent innovation in the treatment of varicose veins is the use of medical glue into the vein through a small catheter. Once the affected vein is closed, blood is immediately re-routed through other healthy veins in the leg. Unlike other treatments, it does not require a regional nerve block or large volumes of anesthesia.

Furthermore, there are no pre-procedures or drugs involved and patients can return to their normal activities right after the treatment. Unlike heat-based procedures such as endogenous laser or radiofrequency ablation, there is no risk of skin burns or nerve damage. Varicose does not require any immediate post-treatment pain medication or uncomfortable compression stockings. The procedure is very safe and minimally invasive.
