Non-Surgical Varicose Vein Treatment

There is a risk of varicose vein formation for people who work standing and stand all day long. This varicose vein formation is the inability of the veins to send blood to the heart due to gravity and leakage in the valves, resulting in increased pooling in the feet and the formation of varicose veins as a result of this.

The formations we call varicose veins occur as the veins in the legs are inherited over time, by standing for a long time, and most importantly, genetically, from the parents. After the appearance of varicose veins, the patient is consulted to the doctor due to similar complaints such as pain or tingling. During ultrasonography, leaks in the vein are detected and existing varicose veins are marked. In today's technology, venablock is the gluing of the entire varicose vein with the latest technology, after the intervention is made with a needle while the patient is talking, without being put to sleep, without any anesthesia. In other words, it is the blocking and closing of the vein and the dampening of the varicose veins that appear. For the remaining small varicose veins, foam treatment is performed with small needles, which we call sclerotherapy.

1. What are Varicose Veins?

The vessels that carry clean blood from the heart to other parts of the body are called arteries, and the vessels that carry dirty blood from different parts of the body to the heart are called veins. Varicose veins are a problem that occurs as a result of the veins widening, elongating and becoming tortuous. In addition, it occurs as a result of blood leaking back due to leakage in the vein valves and pooling due to accumulation behind. It is mostly seen in the legs due to gravity. The definitive diagnosis of varicose veins is made with color Doppler ultrasound.

2. What Causes Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins may occur as a result of venous insufficiency disease. In venous insufficiency, there is a failure of the vein valves that allow blood to flow in one direction towards the heart. The main factors that cause varicose veins to occur are; Due to the deterioration of the valves in the vein structure, blood leaks backwards and the vein widens due to some structural disorders in the vein. Especially in people who stand for long periods of time, the valve structures in the veins may deteriorate, causing varicose veins. However, people with a genetic predisposition are more likely to develop varicose veins than others.

3. Symptoms of Varicose Veins

In some cases, varicose veins may not cause symptoms or cause complaints. In addition, symptoms of varicose veins that occur in some cases are as follows:

  • Leg veins become prominent and take on a curved structure
  • Feeling of restlessness in the legs
  • pain in leg
  • leg cramp
  • Tingling in the leg
  • Burning in the leg
  • Itching in the leg
  • Swelling and color change in the leg
  • numbness in toes
  • It may cause wounds on the legs in the future.

4. Varicose Vein Treatment

In the treatment of varicose veins, the cause that causes varicose veins must first be revealed. If varicose veins are caused by venous insufficiency disease, this disease should be treated first and then the most appropriate varicose vein treatment should be applied. Varicose vein treatment, which used to be done with surgical interventions, can now be easily treated with non-surgical methods.

5. Non-Surgical Varicose Vein Treatment

Non-surgical varicose vein treatment is done with methods called venablock and foam therapy. The common point of both methods is to eliminate varicose veins with procedures performed without anesthetizing the patient. In addition, radiofrequency and laser methods are also used in the treatment of thin capillary varicose veins.

Venablock is an advanced treatment that completely eliminates varicose veins. In the Venablock method, a needle is inserted into the vein and cyanoacrylate glue is applied into the vein. Varicose veins disappear as a result of the vein sticking together. In the foam method, the drug turned into foam is injected into the vein with a needle and the varicose vein is dried.

While the procedure performed on the patient in Venablock treatment takes 10-15 minutes, the patient is discharged within 1 hour and allowed to continue his normal life. Foam treatment lasts between 30-45 minutes and can be repeated depending on the patient's condition. The patient's control is continued at certain periods.

With non-surgical varicose vein treatment, the patient;

  • It can heal in a short time with superior treatment methods.
  • He can continue his daily life after a short procedure.
  • It can be treated without pain, suffering or burning.
  • You can get results from the treatment without being exposed to anesthesia, surgery complications and without scarring.

The latest technological methods are used in non-surgical varicose vein treatment and there is no risk to patient safety. However, since it does not require anesthesia, there is no risk of complications that may occur during the surgery. It is ensured that the patient receives treatment in a short time without experiencing pain or ache. At this point, one of the important factors that play a role in the success of the treatment is that it is carried out by an experienced specialist physician.

Varicose Vein Treatment with Venablock Method

Treatments for varicose veins have developed a lot in the last 10 years. Removal of varicose veins through surgical incision, which was previously performed under general anesthesia, has come to the point of abandonment due to post-operative pain, long-term use of socks after hospitalization for at least 1 day, difficulties such as check-ups, and risks such as rare clots from the removed vein area to the lungs. Thereupon, procedures such as laser and radiofrequency, which are a little more comfortable for the patient but require anesthesia and may cause complaints such as burning and pain, requiring at least 1 day of hospitalization, have been developed and are still performed in most centers today. But Varicose vein treatment has continued to be developed and today the latest point is VenaBlock.

VenaBlock It offers a unique and superior treatment for varicose veins. In this treatment, the patient is admitted on the same day and the procedure is performed within 1 hour and the patient is discharged. Moreover, there is no need to wear socks even after 1 day. He does not receive anesthesia and does not feel pain. It doesn't leave any traces. In this method, cyanoacrylate glue is used with a small needle under ultrasound guidance to close varicose (non-functional) veins. The procedure takes 10-15 minutes and the patient gets up and goes home by walking or driving. This glue has been used for many years in other parts of the body as a safe “Medical Adhesive”. However, recently it has become available for varicose veins. It has been shown that it has no negative short- and long-term side effects and is extremely safe.

Unlike other Endovenous procedures such as Laser or Radiofrequency, VenaBlock does not require large volumes of anesthesia; in most patients, a single injection of local anesthesia at the needle insertion site is sufficient and the patient can immediately return to normal daily activities.

In short, it is a painless, inflammation-free and much superior treatment method compared to old varicose vein treatments.
