Varicose Veins Treatment

Prague Medical Institute / Varicose Veins Treatment

Varicose Veins:

Varicose veins, also referred to as spider veins, are found in people of all ages and they occur on legs or lower limbs. Varicose veins appear on the vein valves that allow blood flow in the opposite direction or the vein valves that do not function properly.

As a result, these veins occur as unsightly on legs and are largely harmless. However, sometimes, they may be extremely painful, and uncomfortable, too. Their symptoms may range from skin pigmentation to painful legs. This is when you should consider varicose veins treatment.

Today, there are various minimally invasive surgical varicose treatment options provided, if you are seeking varicose veins treatment abroad. The choice will entirely depend on your personal preferences and your health conditions.

Varicose Veins

Causes of Varicose Veins:

There are several potential causes of varicose veins including:

Pregnancy | Obesity | Menopause | Standing for Long Time Periods | Family History of Varicose Veins

Vein Care for Confidence and Comfort at Every Step

Varicose Vein Treatments – Surgical and Non-Surgical Options:

Varicose vein surgery may be performed for cosmetic and health-related reasons. The Prague Medical Institute (PMI) provides varicose vein treatments to relieve complications and pain, as well as to cosmetically improve the appearance of blood vessels on legs.

Sclerotherapy:

This is a non-surgical procedure that is mainly performed on small veins under local anaesthesia. In this procedure, a special foam is introduced into varicose veins using a fine needle. This insertion takes place under the guidance of ultrasound equipment.

Endovenous laser treatment (EVLT):

This is one of the popular and minimally invasive types of surgery, which is usually performed under general or local anaesthesia. During the surgery, a small cut is made on the vein, a thin tube is passed through it, and laser energy is directed through this tube to close or burn varicose veins. This treatment is usually performed under ultrasound guidance.

M.O.C.A – ClariVein Method:

The MOCA (Mechanical Occlusion with Chemical Assistance), also known as ClariVein, is an alternative treatment for laser and RF. In this method, a blunt-ended, rotating fibre is gently, yet rapidly spun inside the vein. This spinning agitates the inner lining, and then a chemical for treating veins is injected inside, which closes the non-functional vein. ClariVein is usually performed without anaesthesia and leaves no staples, stitches, or scars.

VenaSeal Vein Glue:

This is the most advanced treatment for spider vein removal. This treatment makes use of medical glue, also known as VenaSeal (cyanoacrylate) for sealing the affected vein. As the vein is glued or shut, the area is subjected to sclerosis or hardening, and the glue will be absorbed by the body gradually. This surgical procedure is minimally invasive and leaves no scars on the area.

When to Approach a Doctor?

There are several self-care exercises recommended for treating varicose veins. Although these exercises may help alleviate pain, still they may not help in removal of purplish or bluish veins from your lower legs. Also, if varicose veins are left untreated, it may later develop into painful complications.

Varicose Veins Surgery Recovery and Aftercare:

Your recovery, as well as aftercare from the surgery, will entirely depend on the procedure administered. The healthcare team at PMI will discuss the recovery and aftercare with you – before and after the treatment.

As most varicose or spider vein surgery options discussed here are simple and require no major precautions or preparations. In most cases, the patient can go home the same day of the surgery. We will provide compression stockings to patients, and advise them on the appropriate use of these.
