Varicose Vein Surgery.
When the veins become overfilled, dilated and enlarged with blood, then it is called as Varicose Veins. These veins look swollen and usually look bluish-purple or red in color. It is a commonly found situation, particularly in women. They generally appear in the lower legs. The common causes of this condition are pregnancy, menopause, standing for a long time, pressure on abdomen, chronic heart valve conditions, obesity etc.
- Highly visible veins
- Swelling/ inflammation by the veins
- Pain in the legs
- Ulcers around ankles
- Abdominal straining
In Medical Science we have the following cures and surgeries for this disease; which are as follows:-
- a) Radiofrequency Ablation-It is a minimally invasive technique in which the doctor closes the vein with the help of scar tissue that is formed by damaging the tissue with heat. Instead of laser, this technique uses radiofrequency energy. This energy is inserted through a thin tube called catheter through a small incision in the vein. This technique allows you to walk after the treatment and the surgical marks are also minimal. It also ensures faster recovery and quick release from the hospital.
- Minimal bruising
- Fast and safe procedure
- Little to no pain
- Minimally invasive
- Resume normal activities in 24 hours
- b) Stripping-Varicose veins stripping is a procedure in which the damaged vein is pulled out from under the skin using small incisions. This procedure should not be done on older people, pregnant women, people with abnormal passage way between artery and vein in the leg, people with swelling and fluid due to blockage in the lymph vessels, people who have poor circulation in the arteries of legs and also people with skin infections and blood-clotting defects.
- Who should get Varicose Stripping done?
- Constant pain, throbbing, and tenderness in the legs
- Skin sores and ulcers
- Blood clots
- Bleeding from the veins
- c) Chemoembolization-A minimally invasive procedure used when the tumor is too large to be treated with Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) or the tumor is in a location that cannot be treated with RFA. It is mostly used to treat the cancer of liver by injecting anti-cancer drugs into the blood vessel feeding a cancerous tumor. It ensures recovery in very less time.
- Milder side effects
- Treats all tumors, including undetected tumors
- Can be repeated
- Promising results
- Recovery in short time
Open surgery needs large incisions of about 8 to 10 cms in the abdomen to expose the area that requires to be treated. Post operation pain is more due to these large incisions only and it also become a reason for extended hospital stays for about 6-8 days and recovery can be expected in 6-7 weeks. In open surgery, body tissues are exposed to external environment, which increases the chance of infection and adhesion.
Laparoscopic surgery is a technique that needs smaller incisions of nearly half to one cm. Several incisions are done to insert the camera to view the internals of the body and others to insert surgical equipment to carry out surgery. Operating time and pain is less.
