Varicose veins

About

Varicose veins, occur when veins become enlarged and twisted due to weakened vein walls or faulty valves. Symptoms may include visible, bulging veins, leg discomfort, or swelling. Treatment options include minimally invasive procedures like sclerotherapy or endovenous laser therapy to close off the affected veins, improving symptoms and appearance.

Symptoms

Varicose veins often present as bulging, twisted veins visible under the skin, usually in the legs. Other symptoms may include aching, heaviness, or throbbing in the legs, especially after prolonged standing or sitting. Some individuals may experience swelling, skin changes, or restless legs. Seeking medical evaluation is important to prevent complications such as venous ulcers or blood clots.

Treatments

Treatment of varicose veins aims to relieve symptoms and improve appearance. Minimally invasive procedures like heat ablation, foam closures, and sclerotherapy are often used to close off the affected veins. These procedures are performed on an outpatient basis with minimal discomfort and downtime. Individualized treatment plans are tailored to each patient's specific condition and needs for optimal outcomes.

Studies Performed

Preventing dilated veins, or varicose veins, involves managing risk factors such as obesity, prolonged standing, and genetics. Regular exercise, elevation of legs, and wearing compression stockings help improve venous circulation. Avoiding tight clothing and high heels, maintaining a healthy weight, and routine medical check-ups aid in early detection and prevention of complications.

Prevention

Studies performed to diagnose dilated veins, or varicose veins, include duplex ultrasound, which assesses blood flow and detects abnormalities in the veins. Venography, using contrast dye and X-rays, provides detailed images of the veins, aiding in diagnosis and treatment planning. These tests help identify dilated veins and guide appropriate management.
