What is vein disease?

Healthy veins have one-way valves that keep blood flowing toward the heart, against the force of gravity. When these valves become weak and don’t close properly, they allow blood to flow backward, a condition called reflux. Veins that have lost their valve effectiveness, become elongated, rope-like, bulged, and thickened. These enlarged, swollen vessels are known as varicose veins.

Common risk factors include:

  • Age
  • Family history
  • Female gender
  • Pregnancy, especially multiple pregnancies

Symptoms of vein disease may include:

  • Visible varicose or spider veins
  • Aching leg pain
  • Leg cramps or restlessness
  • Heaviness or leg fatigue
  • Itching or burning
  • Leg swelling or tightness
  • Darkening ankle skin
  • Slow healing leg wounds or ulcers

Many people find they need to sit down and elevate their legs to relieve symptoms.

Varicose Vein Treatments

Endovenous Thermal Ablation

Using ultrasound, a physician places a catheter into the varicose vein through a small opening in the skin. The tiny catheter, powered by radio-frequency (RF) energy or laser, delivers heat to the vein wall. As the thermal energy is delivered, the vein wall shrinks and the vein is sealed closed. Once the diseased vein is closed, blood is re-routed to other healthy veins.

Sclerotherapy

An extremely fine needle is used to inject the problem varicose or spider vein with a solution which shrinks the vein. The solution irritates the lining of the blood vessel, causing it to swell and stick together, and the blood to clot. Over time, the vessel turns into scar tissue that fades from view.

Ambulatory Phlebectomy

A minimally invasive surgical technique is used to treat varicose veins not caused by saphenous vein reflux. The abnormal vein is removed through a tiny incision or incisions using a special set of tools. The procedure is done under local anesthesia, and typically takes under an hour. Recovery is rapid, and most patients do not need to interrupt regular activity after the procedure.
