What Causes Varicose Veins?

The purpose of your venous system is to return blood to your heart so that it can be oxygenated and circulated. Leg veins have several adaptations that help our bodies move blood against gravity and back into our heart. When one of these adaptations is compromised, you can have pooling of blood in the vein. The vein wall can stretch, causing varicose veins that are noticeable and may result in other symptoms.

Initially, symptoms may be minimal, but they may progress over time. Veins increase in size, become visible, change color and cause several symptoms including pain. The great and small saphenous veins as well as the posterior accessory saphenous veins are responsible for most of these problems. A family history of varicose veins or deep venous thrombosis (DVT) can increase your risk of having varicose veins. Jobs that require you to stand or sit for a prolonged periods promote blood pooling in your veins and may lead to varicose veins. A sedentary lifestyle and prolonged periods of immobility are also associated with this problem.

Treatment Options for Varicose Veins

After your comprehensive venous evaluation, Dr. Rueda will recommend a personalized treatment plan to help relieve your symptoms. Some of the treatments we offer include the following:

All procedures to treat vein problems are in-office procedures. Recovery depends on the type of surgery performed and the extent of the disease. Most people feel recovered within a week of the procedure. There is typically minimal to no pain after the procedure in most patients, and most procedures do not cause any scarring.

HOW DOES RFA WORK?

While you are in a comfortable procedure bed, we will perform an ultrasound to map your veins and identify the diseased vessel. After local anesthesia has been applied, we access your vein with a small needle and insert a small catheter. This catheter warms your vein which collapses the vein walls together. This prevents further blood from accumulating in that diseased vessel. After this is performed, the catheter is removed: no stitches are required. The procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes to complete and patients can go home shortly after its completion. You will have a follow up appointment to ensure your symptoms have improved.

This prevents further blood from accumulating in that diseased vessel. After this is performed, the catheter is removed: no stitches are required. This catheter injects glue into your vein and makes it close down, therefore, preventing further blood from accumulating in that diseased vessel. After this is performed, the catheter is removed: no stitches are required.
