VARICOSE VEINS

Varicose veins are enlarged, swollen, and twisting veins that are visible under the skin often looks like cords on your legs and feet. Often appearing blue or dark purple in colour. They happen when faulty valves in the veins allow blood to flow in the wrong direction or to
pool. Any vein may become varicose, but the veins most commonly affected are those in your legs and feet. That’s because standing and walking upright increases the pressure in the veins of your lower body.

Symptoms & Causes

When painful signs and symptoms occur, they may include:

  • An achy or heavy feeling in your legs
  • Burning, throbbing, muscle cramping and swelling in your lower legs
  • Worsened pain after sitting or standing for a long time
  • Itching around one or more of your veins
  • Bleeding from varicose veins
  • Blood clots
  • A painful cord in the vein with red discoloration of the skin
  • Color changes, hardening of the vein, inflammation of the skin or skin ulcers near your ankle, which can mean you have a serious form of vascular disease that requires medical attention

PELVINIC’S APPROACH TOWARDS YOUR VARICOSE VEINS PROBLEM

Laser treatment can treat larger varicose veins in the legs. A laser fiber is passed through a thin tube (catheter) into the vein. While doing this, the doctor watches the vein on a duplex ultrasound screen. Laser is less painful than vein ligation and stripping, and it has a shorter recovery time. Only local anesthesia or a light sedative is needed for laser treatment. After laser treatment, you will wear compression stockings for 1 week or more. To follow up, your doctor will use duplex ultrasound to make sure that the vein is closed. Laser treatment is used to close off a larger varicose vein, instead of using surgery to remove it.
