Varicose Vein

    Consult With Experienced Doctors

    diabetic-foot

    Overview

    A twisted and swollen vein is referred to as varicose veins in medical terminology. Any superficial vein has the potential to become varicose, but the veins in your legs are the ones that are most usually afflicted. Because standing and walking upright raises the pressure in the veins of your lower body, it is recommended that you avoid doing so.

    Varicose veins and spider veins – a frequent, moderate form of varicose veins — are mostly seen as an aesthetic issue by many persons who have them. Varicose veins may also be a source of unbearable pain and discomfort for certain individuals, and Varicose veins may sometimes progress to more severe complications.

    Self-care methods or operations performed by your doctor to shut or eliminate veins may be required for treatment.

    Everything You Need To Know About Varicose Vein

    What Is It?

    Blood vessels that bulge underneath the surface of the skin are called varicose veins. They are characterized by swelling and twisting. They are often seen on the legs, feet, and ankles and are either blue or purple. They might be uncomfortable or irritating. Spider veins may surround varicose veins. Spider veins are microscopic red or purple lines that form near the skin’s surface and are caused by a build-up of blood.

    Causes

    High blood pressure in the veins causes varicose veins to develop and become visible. Varicose veins occur in veins close to the skin’s surface, and they are painful (superficial).

    One-way valves in the veins allow the blood to flow in one direction alone, towards the heart. When the valves of the veins become weakened or broken, blood may begin to accumulate. As a result, the veins swell up and become visible. Standing or sitting for extended periods may cause blood to pool in the leg veins, raising the pressure inside the veins and increasing the risk of leg vein rupture. Because of the increasing pressure, the veins may get stretched. Vascular walls and valves may be weakened as a result of this procedure.

    Symptoms

    Varicose veins are most easily identified by the presence of a twisted, blue, or purple vein immediately under the skin’s surface. Among the symptoms are:

    • Bulging veins: The blue or purple color of twisted, bulging, rope-like veins is not uncommon. Legs, ankles, and feet are the most common places to see them since they occur just below the skin’s surface. They’re prone to forming in groups. There may be little red or blue lines (spider veins) in the vicinity.
    • Heavy legs: Leg muscles, particularly after exercise, may feel heavy, achy, or sluggish.
    • Itching: Itching is common in the region surrounding varicose veins.
    • Pain: Leg discomfort, particularly in the area below the knees, is common. You might be experiencing cramps in your muscles.
    • Swelling: This condition may cause swelling and throbbing in the feet, ankles, and legs.
    • Ulcers and discolorations of the skin: Varicose veins may turn the skin dark if not addressed. Having very painful varicose veins might lead to skin ulcers called venous ulcers.

    Treatment

    Your healthcare professional will choose which varicose vein therapy is best for you based on the following factors:

    • Your age, general health, and previous health conditions
    • The severity of the problem
    • Your symptoms and signs
    • Your ability to tolerate certain medications, surgeries, or therapies
    • Predicted outcomes of the illness
    • Your perspective or preference

    If there are no symptoms, it may not be essential to seek medical attention. However, varicose veins may worsen if they are not treated.

    The following medical treatments may be conducted:

    • Elevation of the legs: Three or four times a day, for approximately 15 minutes at a time, you may be directed to elevate your feet above your heart level. Flexing (or bending) your legs now and then when sitting or standing might assist in maintaining blood flow. Elevating your legs may help minimize leg swelling and alleviate other symptoms associated with mild to severe varicose veins.
    • Compression stockings: Blood does not pool in the veins because of the compression provided by these neoprene stockings. If compression stockings are used every day, they may be beneficial.
    • Sclerotherapy: A typical treatment for spider and varicose veins is administered by injecting a solution into the vein. The varicose veins are injected with a salt (saline) or chemical solution. They are no longer able to carry blood. As a result, other veins begin to dominate.
    • Thermal ablation: Varicose veins may be treated using lasers or radiofrequency radiation. A catheter is introduced into a varicose vein, and a small fiber is put into it. The wall of the varicose vein is vaporized using laser or radiofrequency radiation.
    • Vein stripping: Varicose veins are removed during this procedure.
    • Microphlebectomy: Varicose veins are removed using specialized equipment introduced via tiny cuts (incisions). Vein stripping is an option, although it’s not required.

    Conclusion

    Varicose veins affect tens of millions of individuals worldwide. Varicose veins aren’t life-threatening for the majority of individuals. Symptoms may be alleviated and prevented from worsening with lifestyle modifications and at-home therapies. Make an appointment to speak with your doctor about safe, minimally invasive varicose vein treatment options.

    After enduring knee pain for the past decade, my mother sought advice from various doctors in Nagpur, Nashik, and Pune. They all recommended knee replacement surgery, but it was only when we discovered Dr. Aashish Arbat and the option of robotics surgery that we made the decision to proceed.

    The surgery took place on June 23, 2023, and it turned out to be an incredible experience. To our astonishment, on the morning of June 24, my mother was able to stand on her own legs and even take a few steps. This remarkable progress was made possible due to the advanced assistance of robotics arm and Artificial Intelligence.

    Dr. Aashish Arbat is an exceptional and highly experienced surgeon, and we are immensely grateful for his expertise. We also extend our appreciation to his colleagues, Dr. Sharma and Dr. Ram, for their excellent skills and compassionate nature. Our heartfelt thanks go out to the entire team for enabling my mother to live a pain-free life
