New methods for treating varicose veins

Varicose veins affect those who work standing for long hours, such as traffic policemen. If varicose veins are not treated early, there can be complications such as chronic venous insufficiency.
Even though the disease is not life threatening, it can be debilitating if not treated properly. Many people do not seek treatment for varicose veins even when the disease is at an advanced stage as surgery is required in many cases, according to K.R. Suresh, Director, Jain Institute of Vascular Sciences (JIVAS), a unit of the Bhagwan Mahaveer Jain Hospital here.

Laser technique
However, for those who do not want to undergo surgery, various new treatments for both large and small varicose veins are now available, and patients can get back to work quickly after treatment.
One of these is "Endovenous Laser Ablation," a minimally invasive technique for treatment of varicose veins.
The treatment involves making a small incision in the affected part and the introduction of laser fibre. Laser is fired at regular intervals causing the varicose vein to collapse completely, Dr. Suresh says. "This is a convenient treatment for those who do not want to undergo surgery, and it is an outpatient procedure," he adds.
The Centre for Venous Disorders at JIVAS claims to be the first in the State and third in India to acquire the ELVes Laser System used for "Endovenous Laser Ablation." "Sequential Compression Therapy" is another treatment for severe swelling caused by certain venous diseases. It involves pushing fluids from the foot, leg, and thigh into the venous system by using a multi-chambered compression device.

Depending on the severity of the condition, there are three major treatment options for varicose veins. However, in most cases, wearing elastic compression stockings could be the only treatment needed.
