Varicose Veins or Venous Insufficiency

Venous insufficiency is a common condition resulting from poorly functioning valves in the veins of the lower extremities, resulting in pooling of blood in the veins. 

Normally, these valves function to keep blood flowing towards the heart against gravity. When these valves 

are not functioning properly, the blood flows in the opposite direction, which can lead to significant symptoms. 

Don't suffer in silence. Contact Premier Vascular & Interventional  today for a comprehensive vascular evaluation.

Varicose Veins: Causes, Symptoms, Risks, and Alerts

Varicose Vein Causes

Varicose veins occur when venous valves don't function properly, leading to blood pooling. Risk factors include age, genetics, pregnancy, obesity, and prolonged standing.

Symptoms of Varicose Veins

Varicose veins often present as dilated, tortuous , veins prominently visible in the legs.  Symptoms can range from pain, heaviness, and itching to more severe symptoms such as swelling, discoloration, and non healing wounds. 

Complications & Risks

If untreated, varicose veins can lead to complications like venous ulcers and debilitating discomfort. Recognizing the stages of venous disease and knowing when to treat is critical to prevent these complications.

When to Consult a Doctor?

Concerned about bulging veins in the legs? If you are experiencing pain, inflammation, or skin changes, it's time to see a specialist. Early intervention can prevent complications.

Treatment Options for Varicose Veins

Conservative Vein Management

Early recommendations for treatment include the use of lower extremity compression stockings, and leg elevation. Many patients respond well to conservative management, negating the need for any procedures. 

Minimally Invasive Treatment Options

Endovenous laser or radiofrequency ablation are safe and effective treatments for symptomatic venous insufficiency with minimal down time and complication risk. Sclerotherapy may be used for treatment of more superficial varicose veins, typically performed in the setting of non healing wounds or severe localized pain.

Post-Treatment Care

After treatment, it is vital to follow post-care guidelines. Compression stockings and continued regular activity are often advised. Monitor for any signs of complications and contact us if any arise.
