What are the most modern treatments for varicose veins? The exact reason for varicose vein development is still unknown. However, many experts suggest that weakening of the vein valves is the most common reason. Your vein valves lose function for various reasons. This condition is common in women during pregnancy, puberty, and menopause because their bodies go through various changes when producing different hormones, such as progesterone and estrogen, in excess. These hormones weaken the inner wall of the vein, disrupting valve function. Birth control pills also affect blood circulation, and can cause varicose veins. The only solution to treat this condition is by removing the varicose vein. In contrast, the popular treatment process for removing these veins is less invasive. You can visit The Vein Treatment Center for expert consultation from surgeons who will diagnose the vein and recommend a suitable procedure. Here are some symptoms of various veins:
Thermal ablation is a new varicose vein surgery that has replaced invasive vein stripping surgery. This technique is similar to endovenous laser treatment as it includes catheter tubes as well. During the procedure, the doctor will insert a small tube inside the vein. They will use an ultrasound screen to observe the process. They will inject tumescent anesthesia fluid, which surrounds the vein. This fluid will prevent heat from leaving the vein. The solution will also reduce pain as it includes anesthesia. Because of this fluid, surgeons can easily perform treatment without damaging nerves outside the vein. The catheter treats the inner lining of the vein, which shrinks them for your body to reabsorb. After the treatment, you have to wear compression stockings to maintain the pressure preventing blood to re-enter the vein.
Many surgeons also perform procedures to remove the vein without heating. These are non-thermal non-tumescent treatments. Surgeons won’t use anesthesia in this treatment because the procedure does not include heating. This makes for a painless procedure with fewer consequences. The doctor will perform this treatment in their office so it takes less than an hour to eliminate the vein. After the procedure, you can return home and get back to regular activities.
This is one of the popular treatments to reduce varicose veins. It has a success rate of 94 to 100 percent. Doctors recommend this treatment for larger varicose veins. In this procedure, the surgeon will make a small incision in the skin and insert a catheter tube. The specialist will analyze the process using an ultrasound screen. After inserting the tube, they will introduce the laser fiber from the tube. Now the doctor will use a laser to heat the inner wall of the varicose vein. The heat will damage the inner lining closing the vein. The blood will move out of the vein shrinking it.
Once you are done with the procedure, your body will gradually absorb the vein so it completely disappears. The surgeon will use anesthesia to numb the treatment location, which prevents any discomfort. This is a non-invasive treatment so you can go home the same day. A professional surgeon will complete the process within an hour or less. After the procedure, you have to wear a compression stocking for a week or until the next follow-up session.
Clarivein is another procedure without the need of inserting fluids around the vein. In this method, the doctor inserts a catheter inside the vein. Then, they will introduce a metal wire on the upper end of the vein. The rotation of wire damages the inner wall of the vein. After removing the catheter, the surgeon will inject a chemical inside the vein. This chemical will completely close off the vein.
