What Is a Varicose Vein?
A varicose vein is a dilated, tortuous vein that is visible under the skin. Varicose veins usually occur in the legs and can be painful. They are often associated with numerous symptoms, some of which are swelling (edema), fatigue, heaviness, tiredness and weakness, itching, perception of burning or coldness, numbness, muscle cramps, restless leg syndrome, skin darkening (venous stasis pigmentation), difficulties walking and particularly standing. Left untreated, varicose veins unavoidably deteriorate further and lead to serious complications, such as blood clots (thrombophlebitis), ulcers (non-healing wounds), external bleeding from spontaneously ruptured veins, skin, soft tissue infections (venous stasis dermatitis and reperfusion cellulitis), and even to malignant tumors.
Varicose Veins Are a Common Problem
Varicose veins are a common problem, affecting up to 30% of the population. They are more common in women than men and tend to run in families. Varicose veins can occur at any age but are most common in middle-aged and older adults.
The valves in the veins help to keep blood flowing in the correct direction, back to the heart. When these valves don’t work properly, blood can pool in the veins and cause them to dilate and twist.
Varicose Veins Can Be Treated and Cured
There are a variety of treatment modalities available for varicose veins, including sclerotherapy, endovenous laser therapy, and more. All such venous interventions are non-invasive and performed in the outpatient office under local anesthesia. There is no pre-procedure preparation, nor are there post-procedure recovery restrictions, physical limitations, etc. Finally, with the exception of the most advanced cases, varicose veins are not only treatable – just like everything else in medicine – but are also curable, which is not common in medicine at all.
