The term “Varicose Veins” is loosely applied to the whole spectrum of diseases that we see in our clinics. These veins which are often painful require varicose veins treatments.
Some problems, such as large varicose veins, may call for ligation which is a procedure where the connections between the damaged veins and the normal vein systems are interrupted. Ligation is usually done under local anesthesia in an outpatient setting, often in combination with other procedures. Your initial consultation will give you and your physician an opportunity to discuss which varicose veins treatments program may be best for you.
Miniphlebectomy is a procedure that can be used on small and large veins In this procedure, tiny pinpoint holes are made with a small needle. Using specialized instruments, segments of the vein can be removed through these openings. The tiny openings heal with nearly invisible scars that are quite cosmetically acceptable. You won’t even have to wear stockings for an extended period of time with this procedure, which is done under local anesthetic with minimal down time.
Since 2001, we have used lasers for ablating large veins. The treatments, known as Laser-assisted Saphenous Endoablation (LASE) or Endoluminal Laser Ablation of the Saphenous Vein (EVLT or ELAS), obliterate the interior portion of the vein using laser energy. Patients appreciate having an innovative and minimally invasive solution for removing large, painful and unsightly veins. General anesthesia is not required and the procedure can be performed in the clinic with little discomfort or downtime. A support stocking will be required for one week following the procedure. You will most likely be able to drive yourself home afterwards. Physicians at Veintec Varicose Vein Clinics have performed more than 5,000 LASE procedures with a 99 percent success rate.
How Laser Vein Treatment Works
A small intravenous needle is inserted into the vein near the knee. A tiny laser is introduced into the Saphenous vein, where the varicose veins and other veins originate. The laser is turned on as the laser filament is pulled out of the Saphenous vein, resulting in injury to the vein wall, which causes it to close. If necessary, other veins are removed during a procedure called a Miniphlebectomy, where tiny pinpoint holes are made with a small needle. Using specialized instruments, segments of the vein can be removed through these openings.
