What is Varicose Veins Treatment?
Varicose Veins Treatment; It is the name given to surgical or non-surgical applications performed to eliminate complaints that have a negative effect on both aesthetic and quality of life, accompanied by pain and swelling caused by the expansion of the veins in the lower layer of the skin.
Genetic predisposition, multiple or multiple pregnancy history, excessive weight burden, varicose veins can be observed in every adult individual, especially those who work standing or sitting for the job. Varicose veins treatment is planned depending on the types of varicose veins. Varicose veins; small (capillary varices that do not protrude on the skin surface); 3 types: medium size (dark green varicose with a slight protrusion on the skin surface, usually no pain or complaints are observed) and large size (green or blue colored, painful, swollen and cramping varices that have enlarged enough to protrude on and under the skin surface) collected under.

Everything You Need To Know About Varicose Veins Treatment

There are many factors that affect the prices of varicose veins treatment. First of all, whether surgical or non-surgical varicose treatment methods will be chosen, the type of anesthesia to be taken, hospitalization and other expenses if varicose treatment will be performed with surgery, whether one leg or both legs will be treated at the same time, many details such as the number of veins to be removed. causes the treatment prices to vary. Varicose Treatment Prices are performed between 4,000 TL and 15,000 TL on average.
Varicose Veins Treatment is planned according to the definition of varicose veins of the person. Varicose veins, which are grouped under 3 types, including small varicose veins, medium sized varicose veins and large varicose veins, have different treatment methods according to the varicose type you have. In the diagnosis phase of varicose treatment, the person goes through a detailed examination process with Doppler ultrasonography.

In the treatment of varicose veins, the function of the problematic vessels can be terminated and the varicose area can be treated with different methods such as "Laser", "Radiofrequency", "Steam", "Foam". Although these methods are the solution of many varicose problems, varicose veins surgery is still valid. The most effective treatment method is still varicose veins surgery, especially for people with small blue varicose veins in their ankles and excessive saphenous vein. After the necessary examinations, your doctor will decide whether surgical or non-surgical methods will be preferred.

Treatment of Varicose Veins with Varicose Surgery

Treatment of varicose veins with varicose surgery is based on the removal of problematic veins (saphenous vein) and other varicose veins, if any. It is performed in a hospital environment under general or local anesthesia.

Classical varicose veins surgery is now performed with ultrasound imaging and "invagination" knotting techniques. For this reason, the incision made is smaller than in the past and the knotted vessel is much easier to remove.
Varicose veins surgery can be applied to one leg or both legs at the same time. The duration of the operation varies depending on the details such as the number of vessels to be removed, and whether the operation will be performed on a single or double leg. It takes an average of 1.5-2 hours. Varicose veins surgery starts with an incision made in the groin, ankle or knee level. From the 1 cm incision, the saphenous vein, which was previously imaged and located, is reached with the help of a special wire and hook, its ends are tied with the invagination method, and then it is pulled down from the incision and the vein is folded out. Varicose veins other than the saphenous vein are also evacuated from the body by the same method. Since the incisions are of a size that do not require stitches, they are closed with the help of surgical tapes and the legs / legs are wrapped with elastic band. The recovery period after varicose veins surgery is longer than non-surgical methods. However, while the hospitalization period in the past period varicose veins surgeries was 2-3 days, today the person can be discharged from the hospital on the same day after varicose vein surgery accompanied by advanced technology.

Non-Surgical Varicose Veins Treatment

Non-surgical varicose treatment, "laser treatment of varicose veins", "radiofrequency method", "varicose veins treatment with steam method" can be applied under the headings are close to each other in principle.

The process steps performed are almost the same, and they differ in terms of preferred methods. The basis of all this is to eliminate the problem of varicose veins by canceling the problematic saphenous vein. They are treatment methods that can be applied in a clinical setting.

Problematic methods in the treatment of varicose veins with laser are saphenous veins and other varicose veins are treated with laser energy. Sclerotherapy or foam treatment can be applied in addition to the application.

  • In the treatment of varicose veins with laser, problematic veins are marked with ultrasound first.
  • The sedation method is applied so that the person does not feel uncomfortable during the procedure. The vascular area is numbed by the tumescent anesthesia method.
  • The determined vessels are entered with a needle and laser fiber (plastic thin tube) is placed.
  • Laser waves are sent into the vein through the laser fiber, causing the vessel to become dysfunctional.
  • The duration of treatment of varicose veins with laser is 15-20 minutes for each vein.
  • Since there is no incision, the recovery period is shorter and more comfortable.

In the treatment of varicose veins with radiofrequency method, problematic saphenous veins and other varicose veins are treated with radiofrequency energy.

  • In the treatment of varicose veins with radiofrequency, problematic veins are marked with ultrasound first.
  • The sedation method is applied so that the person does not feel uncomfortable during the procedure. The vascular area is anesthetized with the tumescent anesthesia method.
  • The determined vessels are entered with a needle and a radiofrequency catheter is placed.
  • Radiofrequency waves are sent into the vein through the radiofrequency catheter, causing the vessel to become dysfunctional.
  • The duration of varicose treatment with radiofrequency method is 15-20 minutes for each vein.
  • Since there is no incision, the recovery period is shorter and more comfortable.

Varicose veins treatment with steam method works in a similar way with rediofrequency and laser treatment methods. All process steps are the same, only steam energy is used to close the vessel.

Treatment of varicose veins by sclerotherapy method; It is the process of entering the varicose vein with the help of a needle and closing the problematic vein with the help of a drug called sclerosing. It is generally used in the treatment of capillary and medium size varicose veins.
With the foam method, varicose veins treatment works with the same logic, but in the foam treatment, foam is given intravenously instead of medication and the problematic vein is closed. This method, which is generally used in the treatment of capillary and medium-sized varicose veins, is also known as needle treatment for varicose veins.

Sclerotherapy and Foam Therapy Application Steps

  • Problematic vessels are marked with ultrasound before sclerotherapy and foam therapy applications.
  • The sedation method is applied so that the person does not feel uncomfortable during the procedure. The vascular area is numbed by the tumescent anesthesia method.
  • The determined vessels are entered with a needle and sclerosing drug (in liquid form) or foam drug is given with the needle.
  • The drug closes the vessel from the inside, making the vessel dysfunctional.
  • Since there is no incision, the recovery period is shorter and more comfortable.
  • After a certain time after treatment, varicose closes and disappears over time.
During the recovery process of non-surgical varicose veins treatment methods, the person can go home after an average of 2 hours of rest after the procedure. Since there are no incisions and stitches and regional anesthesia is applied in non-surgical varicose treatments, there is no need to stay at night.

After the procedure, pain may occur in and around the application area, pain relievers will be recommended by your doctor to get over this situation in the lightest way.
After non-surgical varicose treatment applications;
Compressed compression stockings should be worn for the first 3 weeks.
  • The person can continue his regular activities,
  • You can take a warm shower the day after the procedure,
  • The leg area should be kept away from heat sources such as hot water, hot air and sun for at least 1 month.
  • It is recommended not to stand for a long time, to rest with the feet extended in the sitting position.
  • Swelling, bruising, sensitivity at the needle insertion sites and even spot problems can be observed, all of them are temporary complications, they disappear spontaneously over time.

After varicose veins surgery, the healing process develops a little differently. After varicose veins surgery, the person is usually able to do light daily work with a report for 1-2 months and at rest. It takes 4 to 8 weeks for pain and similar postoperative complaints to disappear.

The boiling of the incision sites after varicose veins surgery is completed at the end of an average of 2 weeks. Paying attention to the procedure recommended by the doctor regarding this situation will eliminate possible infection risks.
