This is a disease where the veins have difficulty pumping blood back to the heart from the lower extremities. It can be caused by: blockages, stenosis, weakness in the vein wall, and valvular dysfunction.
Weakness in the vein wall and in the valvular structure are dependent on:
This involves the injection of a medicine called Polidocanol, a microfoam that breaks the internal vein wall and stimulates a process of scarring and closing varicose or dysfunctional veins. Over time, the body begins to slowly reabsorb the vein until it disappears. Usually, symptoms diminish from the first or second session. An average of three to five sessions are advised, which can take place every two to four weeks.
This begins in the same way as conventional sclerotherapy, however it is carried out on larger-caliber veins, and those that can only be seen using the ultrasound doppler. This method uses higher concentrations of medicine, because the veins being treated are thicker.
The objective is to break the internal vein wall, however this is completed using heat. Eligible patients include those with insufficiency in the great saphenous vein or the small saphenous vein, which are large-caliber veins in the lower extremities’ superficial vein system.
This is an outpatient procedure, meaning the patient remains under observation for 90 minutes, and is then discharged. The following day the patient may return to their daily activities. The only mandatory aftercare is to wear compression stockings up to the mid-thigh for a full week following the procedure.
Another advantage of this procedure is that only one session is needed, and there is no need for invasive surgery. A small incision is made, no bigger than a needle, and stitches are not necessary. For this reason, the risk of infection from the wound is almost zero, in comparison with saphenectomy that requires large incisions and the removal of a part or the whole of the vein.
