Enlarged and stretched surface veins (varicose veins) can cause painful cramps in the muscles, feet and lower legs, swelling and burning, and even ulcers in the lower parts of the legs. The neglected ailments can lead to a number of serious complications: venous insufficiency, deep vein inflammation and, consequently, life-threatening embolism (blockage of blood vessels).
In patients with venous insufficiency, the individual decision about the choice of the best treatment method is based on the results of a thorough clinical examination and Doppler study. Surgical treatment of varicose veins is taken into account only in the case of patency of the deep venous system.
LASER REMOVAL OF VARICOSE VEINS – the procedure consists in the irradiation of the affected vein by means of a quartz optical fibre supplied by the laser light, an optical fibre moving through the vein, thanks to the light pulses of the required frequency, it closes from the inside without the need to remove it. After the procedure, only a small scar is left after the optical fibre has been punctured and the vein is fibrotic. This method allows to avoid surgical incision in the groin and postoperative haematoma associated with classical surgery.
