The key to effective healing is precise diagnosis and one- day surgery that does not stress your body.
Checking the valves
- After thorough manual and instrumental testing we define the type of surgery required. We take into consideration your previous symptoms, diseases and operations. Then we check and palpate your expanded veins in an upright position. Then, in a lying position we check the state of valve between the deep veins and the veins on the surface with the help of an ultrasound device (Doppler). This determines exactly how we will operate.
If the valve of the main veins on the surface is intact then only the expanded ancillary veins have to be removed. If the valve itself is damaged then the main surface vein and the expanded ancillary veins have to be removed . The role of the veins we remove is naturally taken over by the remaining veins.
It is important to know that varicose spiderweb veins are only an aesthetic problem. These can be cured by an injection treatment.
Why is it important to operate on varicose veins?
- Blood flow slows down in the expanded veins, so blood becomes stagnant in the legs. That is why a lack of oxygen may occur, especially when standing. This lack of oxygen causes the symptoms of varicose veins: pain, tightness in the limbs and fatigue. Other diseases of varicose veins can be thrombosis, inflammation – and, due to insufficient blood flow in the skin, eczema and ulcers can occur later.
Varicose veins do not heal, they deteriorate over time. If surgery is performed in time then more serious consequences can be avoided. Early stages of varicose veins can be treated by wearing compression tights, but this does not cure the problem, it only slows down the deterioration process. Advanced varicose veins can only be treated by surgery.
Varicose vain surgery with incision
- This surgery can be done in one day and it does not involve too much stress to the body
- The main vein can be stripped through a small incision (5-15mm), the smaller ones can be removed from (?)
- The patient can leave hospital a few hours after surgery
- They can return to work within a week
- Pain is minimal
- The essence is that we do not remove the problematic veins but close them with a special laser technique. An optic catheter is inserted into the expanded vein, then we use local anaesthetics for the surrounding area. Then With the help of a laser we close the vein.
The result is even better aesthetically as no incision is made.
