Varicose veins are a common condition that affects many adults. Although anyone can develop varicose veins, more females than males tend to have the condition. Varicose veins are not always painful, but they can cause pain and discomfort for some people. They can indicate a more serious condition such as venous reflux disease. The doctors here at BASS Vein Center can determine if you have this condition by examining your varicose veins.
Venous Reflux Disease affects blood circulation in the lower part of the body, usually the legs. It is also commonly known as venous insufficiency. Veins have one-way valves that keep the blood pumping in the right direction, against gravity, towards the heart. When the valves become damaged or weak, they do not close as they should. That causes reflux to occur, which is when the blood flows back into the veins.
Venous Reflux Disease can cause several other serious issues to occur and seriously affect a person’s lifestyle, especially if the individual stands or sits for long periods throughout the day for their job. The most severe symptoms of this disease include:
The VenaSeal procedure can reduce or stop the backward flow of blood caused by venous reflux disease. With this innovative type of vein treatment, blood circulation will improve, and you will start to experience fewer symptoms if any at all.
With some patients, the use of compression socks alone can help to improve poor blood circulation. But others will require the vein to be closed off or removed using VenaSeal treatment. With this treatment, the flow of blood is improved by either sealing or closing the affected vein. With VenaSeal, the vein specialist places a small amount of medical adhesive inside the affected vein, which seals it off. That allows the blood to be rerouted to another vein naturally.
The experts here at BASS Vein Center will discuss the procedure’s steps with you and address any questions you may have. Here is a summary of what you can expect:
