The first fact that should be underlined is that: Varicose veins, if treated properly and correctly, can reduce the risk of recurrence down to 3%. So, no one suffering from varicose veins should have to accept the condition and live with it throughout their life.
The second fact is that even in the most advanced cases of varicose veins, all the surgeries are done under local anesthetic and you can return home (or to work, shopping, etc.) immediately after the procedure, walking absolutely normally.
‘Best Varicose Veins Treatment – UK 2020’ by Global Health & Pharma MagazineVaricose veins are simply defined as a mechanical disfunction of the veins, where the valves inside the veins are no longer working properly. It can be a genetically caused problem, other factors like the type of work, are just factors that might help in making the problem worse but they are not the cause.
Usually, the varicose vein treatment plan at our London varicose vein clinic is a combination of these treatment methods established for each individual case following the results from the detailed Doppler-Ultrasound scan results.
The first and most important step in treating varicose veins is to do a very thorough and correct Doppler-Ultrasound scan. That scan, correctly performed, takes at least 40 minutes (not a 5 minute scan) as we have about 160 anatomical variations of the veins that can cause varicose veins per leg, including the “famous” Great and Small Saphenous veins, all the anatomical variations of the perforators (the communicators between the Deep Venous System and Superficial Venous System) and the pelvic veins. So again, a 5 or 10 minute Doppler-Ultrasound scan is never a good option and will not help identify all the underlying issues.
Endovenous Laser Ablation of the vein (EVLA) Based on the results of the detailed Doppler-Ultrasound scan we tailor the best varicose vein treatment plan for each case apart. These treatment options vary from case to case and they include: High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU), Endovenous Microwave Ablation of the veins (EMWA), Endovenous Laser Ablation of the veins (EVLA), Transluminal Occlusion Of the Perforators (TRLOP), Micro-phlebectomies, Ultrasound-Guided Foam Sclerotherapy, and microsclerotherapy.
