Varicose veins are enlarged twisted veins. They generally occur in the legs due to malfunctioning veins mainly caused due to the pressure created from standing and sitting for a long time.
Treatment options (minimally invasive procedures) for varicose veins include:
Based on the stage of varicose veins the doctor will choose to administer either medical intervention or surgical intervention. The doctor may suggest lifestyle changes during the early stages of varicose veins.
The laser fiber is then passed through this catheter and both the fiber can catheters are pulled back slowly destroying the vein completely. This then gets absorbed by the body. This is done as a day-care procedure, and you are able to go home on the same day
Varicose veins are formed when the valves in a vein malfunction or are weak. Your veins help return the blood back to your heart for purification.
The blood in your legs has to move up against gravity to reach the heart. Muscle contractions in your lower legs act as pumps, and elastic vein walls help blood return to your heart.
Your veins also have valves that prevent the back-flow of blood. If these valves are weak or damaged, blood can flow backward and pool in the vein, causing the veins to stretch or twist.
There are many reasons or a combination of reasons why your valves malfunction. They are:
1. Overview: EVLT is a minimally invasive procedure. It uses ultrasound and laser to heat the vein, which causes the vein to close.
3. Post-Surgical Care:

Symptoms that you can see:
EVLA stands for Endovenous Laser Ablation. It may also be referred to as EVLT or Endovenous Laser Treatment. This procedure uses laser energy to treat varicose veins under local anesthesia.
This method has many advantages over the traditional vein stripping method. EVLA is usually a day-care procedure, which means you get discharged on the same day.
The patient also does not have any visible cuts, stitches, or scars after the procedure.
1. Overview: In this minimally invasive procedure, a solution is injected directly into the vein, due to which the vein collapses.
3. Post-Surgical Care:
4. Advantages of this Procedure: The procedure does not involve incisions and stitches to care for. With minimal recovery time, you can get up and start walking soon after the procedure.
If left untreated, varicose veins can lead to multiple complications such as ulcers, bleeding, or even blood clots.
Ulcers can form near the varicose veins and are characterized by severe discoloration and pain. Some varicose veins that are close to the skin can burst to lead to blood loss.
There are no real methods to completely prevent varicose veins from occurring. However, improving circulation and the muscle tone in the area will help reduce chances. Other lifestyle changes that one can adopt to reduce chances are by:
