Lower Leg Veins

What are Lower Leg Veins?

A venous problem that can often cause mild pains near the leg and foot areas can be spider veins or varicose veins, depending on its severity. Maintaining an active and healthy lifestyle can be problematic if one faces leg or foot spider vein capillaries. With time and age, this problem can cause discomfort and unpleasant sensations if not treated. Patients usually suffer from ankle veins due to venous reflux, which is the blood leaking backward. Leg and foot spider veins are not as dangerous as varicose veins in the same area; however, patients should have it looked at by the doctor to get a corresponding treatment plan. It might begin as a minor cosmetic issue of the appearance of blue, red, or purple veins near the ankles, leading to swollen and unpleasant sensations. To treat this problem, it is recommended to undergo endovenous ablation therapy.

Treatment options
Microphleboctonomy

  Microphlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure used to remove varicose veins in the legs. It is a safe and effective alternative to traditional vein stripping.

  The procedure is usually done on an outpatient basis, meaning you can go home the same day. First, your doctor will numb the area of the leg where the varicose vein is located. Then, they will make a tiny incision in the skin and insert a slender surgical instrument called a microphlebectomy device. This device is used to remove the vein from the leg.

  Microphlebectomy is generally considered a safe and effective treatment for varicose veins, and it can provide long-term relief from symptoms.

VenaSeal

The VenaSeal procedure is a minimally invasive treatment option for varicose veins that eliminates the need for surgery or sclerotherapy. It is a quick, safe, and effective way to reduce symptoms such as aching, swelling, and heaviness in the legs. During the procedure, a medical adhesive is injected directly into the vein to seal it closed. The procedure is typically done in a single session, and most people can return to their normal activities within a few days.

Radiofrequency ablation

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) is a minimallyinvasive procedure used to treat varicose veins. In this procedure, a thin needle is inserted into the vein, and a small electrical current is used to heat up the vein walls, damaging them and causing them to collapse. Once the vein is collapsed, it is sealed off, allowing the blood to be rerouted through healthier veins. This procedure is minimally invasive and takes between 30 and 60 minutes, and patients can typically go home within a few hours of the procedure.

  Patients will typically experience some swelling and bruising in the area, but these symptoms should subside after a few days. The treated veins will gradually fade away over the next few months, and most patients are able to resume normal activities within a few days of the procedure.
