As opposed to the treatment of arterial disease, where therapy focuses on improving blood flow through diseased blood vessels (with stents, bypasses etc.), the main idea of vein disease treatment is to eliminate reverse blood flow through affected veins. This is typically done in three ways.
The first is physically removing the affected vein either totally or partially from the body, usually by means of surgery. The second includes all interventions made through a needle, such as sealing veins with different types of physical or chemical agents. Finally, the third approach to prevent the reversal of blood flow is by means of external compression through special compression stockings or elastic bandages.
There are, of course, pros and cons to each of the above approaches, which are discussed in the corresponding sections.
