What are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are simply veins where the internal valves do not close correctly thus allowing backwards blood flow (reflux). Because of the malfunctioning valves, the blood is able to flow the wrong way which can cause the vein to become enlarged and tortuous. These vessels are much more than a cosmetic issue. Without treatment, varicose veins will continue to grow bigger and will start to cause other health issues. Over time many patients with varicose veins will develop skin changes and swelling. Some may develop chronic skin ulcers. Blood clots are also much more common in patients with varicose veins. Prevention is difficult as the most common cause for varicose veins is genetics. Currently there are no pharmaceutical treatments that will repair these veins. Compression stockings can be helpful in relieving some symptoms such as swelling but will not repair the vein. The best current treatment for varicose vein is EVLA (endovenous laser ablation) with the Cooltouch Laser.
