What is Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are caused by the weakening valves and walls of the veins. These are enlarged and twisted veins that commonly occur in the legs and feet. There are conservative measures to prevent it from progressing further. The method of treatment depends on the severity of varicose veins. The surgical procedure for these swollen veins is called surgical vein stripping. It includes Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) or Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA). The process involves removing the affected veins through small incisions made in the leg. The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia or regional anaesthesia. The diseased veins are first identified, allowing the surgeon to gently strip off the vein from the leg. The most appropriate treatment option will be performed for the specific case.

Symptoms

Varicose veins are swollen, thick veins that most often occur on the legs and feet. They occur when the valves in the veins fail to function properly, causing blood to flow inefficiently.
A varicose vein may burst or grow into varicose ulcers on the skin in serious cases. These will need to be handled

Common Causes of Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are caused by faulty or impaired valves. Arteries transport blood from your heart to your tissues, while veins return blood from the rest of your body to your heart, allowing the blood to be recirculated. The veins in your legs must work against gravity to return blood to your core.
Lower leg muscle contractions serve as pumps, and elastic vein walls aid blood flow back to your heart. When blood flows through your heart, tiny valves in your veins open and close to prevent blood from flowing backward. Blood will flow backward and pool in the vein if these valves are weak or impaired, stretching or twisting the veins.

Treatment

Treatment are required to relieve pain or discomfort, as well as to resolve complications such as leg ulcers, skin discoloration, or swelling.
Some patients seek care for aesthetic purposes, in order to remove the “ugly” varicose veins.
