Varicose veins are a type of venous disorder that causes abnormalities in the veins, especially on the legs and feet. Though the cause may vary from person to person, the condition leads to swelling or enlarged veins that may be painful or itchy and can eventually lead to bleeding and (non healing) ulcers.
This is done by general examination and Ultrasound Doppler study which can show the exact site of disease in the form of damaged valves & dilatation of veins.
Till now various treatment options available for varicose veins were elevating the legs while lying down or sitting, bending legs occasionally when standing for a long period of time, Compression Stockings, Sclerotherapy for short segment disease. Vein Stripping Surgery is a major surgery where the recurrence rate is too high,cause ugly scar in legs and 2-3 weeks needed for recovery.
Endovenous Laser Treatment involves the where a fine laser probe is passed inside a vein. This heats the vein and causes it to close up. A fine ELVeS laser fiber is inserted into an introducer sheath and is progressed towards the sapheno-femoral junction. The positioning is confirmed by ultrasound and near infrared laser energy is delivered in short pulses. This causes thermal contraction of the vein wall and application of tumescent local anaesthesia protects the surrounding structures from damage.
The laser treatment is performed along the entire vessel length and the laser energy leads to a complete occlusion of the vein.
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) the latest and most effective, patient friendly and non-surgical treatment for Varicose veins using Multipolar RFA machine. Under color-doppler Ultrasound vision, a radiofrequency catheter is inserted into the abnormal vein and the vessel treated with radio-energy, resulting is closure of the involved vein.The Interventional Radiologist accesses the abnormal saphenous vein percutaneoulsy through a small cannula in abnormal vein.
Ablation uses a thin, flexible tube called a catheter with tiny electrodes at the tip of the catheter, which collapses the thick varicose veins.
It is a commonly performed non-surgical treatment for varicose and “spider” leg veins in which medicine is injected into the veins to make them shrink. It is safe, proven and effective. Prior to the procedure, you will have an initial consultation to determine if yu are eligible for sclerotherapy. This includes an ultrasound of the veins to evaluate the full extent of the problem causing the spider veins. The larger vein must be treated before sclerotherapy is performed.
If the vein causing the problems is not treated first, oter spider veins will appear after the sclerotherapy is complete. During,sclerotherapy, small injection of irritating solution is injected into the vein, which causes the vein to close. Two or more sessions are usually required to achieve optimal results.
I first discovered IndiaCarez when I was doing online research for finding a treatment for Varicose Veins. I have lived with the pain and discomfort for more than eight years now and this affected my peace of mind and social life. The doctors here in Atlanta referred me to a Plastic Surgeon who advised vein stripping surgery and 3 days of hospital stay. I was really scared particularly about taking anesthesia and surgery itself.
But RFA treatment for me has come as a blessing indeed and in just one day I could feel the improvement, the pain was gone and I could walk easily. I was nervous about traveling half way around the world to have surgery, but upon my arrival the staff put all of my worries at ease. The pre-op tests performed on me in India were tests never performed on me in the United States.
They were very thorough and wanted to ensure my surgery was as safe as possible. The nurses were caring and friendly, as was all of the hospital staff. My surgeon was all well educated. Some of his medical education was even completed in the U.S.
He was very through and explained all parts of my procedure in detail. .I have been so pleased with the quality of the care in India that I would definitely consider traveling here again for any future medical needs.
