About Varicose veins

Varicose veins are twisted, swollen, blue-purple to black veins found closer to the surface of the skin. They are caused by damaged valves in the veins which causes blood to pool in the veins.

For most people, varicose veins and spider veins - a mild form of varicose veins — are merely aesthetic concerns. However, some people experience discomfort and pain that can lead to a more serious problem.

    Varicose Veins treatment Mumbai and Nearby Regions

    The doctor will first physically examine your legs by checking for swelling or discoloration. Additionally, you might be asked about your medical history and describe the symptoms that you are experiencing. Based on the diagnosis of your condition, the doctor may recommend you to go for certain diagnostic tests like blood tests, Doppler test, and ultrasound to carry out a thorough diagnosis and look for the presence of the blood clots.

    To prevent the condition from developing into a severe medical complication, the doctor will carry out one of these treatment procedures to help you get rid of your varicose veins:

    • Sclerotherapy: Sclerotherapy is a non-surgical procedure where the doctor injects a sclerosant solution directly into your veins. This will force the blood to flow through healthier veins by collapsing the abnormal or damaged veins, making them disappear over time.
    • Radiofrequency Ablation [RFA]: Also known as fulguration, this is a non-surgical procedure of treating varicose veins. During this procedure, the abnormal veins are heated by sending radiofrequency waves through a needle, redirecting the blood to flow through healthier veins.
    • Endovenous Laser Therapy Ablation [EVLT]: This procedure is performed with the guidance of an ultrasound scan which helps in identifying the affected vein. The surgeon then inserts a catheter attached with a laser at the end and guides it through the vein to heat and close the walls of the vein. This stops the blood from flowing through the abnormal veins as a result of which the problematic vein shrinks and disappears over a period of time.
    • Vein ligation and stripping: This is the traditional procedure where the surgeon makes a number of cuts or incisions that range in about 5 cm in diameter, before stripping the damaged veins and tying them off.
    • Transilluminated powered phlebectomy: This procedure is performed under the influence of anesthesia. The surgeon makes several incisions and inserts a light source[transilluminator] into the tissue to have a clearer view of the veins. Once the abnormal vein(s) are identified, the surgeon inserts a catheter through one of the incisions to cut and remove the veins.

    What is the difference between spider veins and varicose veins? 

    Spider veins and varicose veins are certainly related, but they are not the same condition. They have one cause, i.e., venous insufficiency. Other than that, there are some key differences between these venous disorders- 

    • Spider veins are tiny blue or red lines (capillaries) that are visible under the skin’s surface. Whereas varicose veins are twisted, bulging superficial veins that can be felt under the skin. 
    • Spider veins don’t usually cause swelling or have painful symptoms. Varicose veins can cause pain and other symptoms like a feeling of heaviness, discomfort, and swelling. 
    • Generally, spider veins are considered a cosmetic concern, and they don’t turn into varicose veins. However, varicose veins are considered a serious medical concern as they indicate that the venous problem has become severe. 

    In many cases, spider veins are caused by undiagnosed and asymptomatic varicose veins. Thus, it is crucial that you seek proper treatment for both of these conditions. 

    Why varicose veins should not be left untreated? 

    Many people believe that spider veins don’t have any underlying reason and are purely a cosmetic concern. However, spider veins can be a sign of an underlying venous problem, even varicose veins

    If you have bulging veins that are visible on the skin, you should not leave them untreated for a long time as they can lead to the following complications- 

    • Severe pain and swelling in the affected area that can ultimately cause immobility. 
    • Constant feeling of weakness or tiredness. 
    • Excessive bleeding may occur if the swollen vein is damaged in any way. 
    • Eventually, blood clots may start to form inside the veins, which can be life-threatening. 
    • Ulcers may also start to form in the affected area. 
    • The risk of developing deep vein thrombosis will increase significantly if the primary cause is venous insufficiency. 

    Many people delay seeking treatment for varicose veins and spider veins, thinking that it is a minor problem that will resolve on its own. However, in doing so, they are only endangering their health and life. So, whether you have spider veins or varicose veins, you should see a vascular specialist promptly.

    How to prevent varicose veins formation? 

    A healthy lifestyle is important to prevent vascular problems, such as spider veins and varicose veins. Vascular problems arise when the vein health is affected, and the valves stop functioning properly due to excessively high or low pressure. 

    So, here are some tips that will improve your vascular health and prevent common problems- 

    • Do not sit or stand in the same position for a prolonged period. Try moving around every now and then to keep the blood flowing, especially in the legs. 
    • Spider veins and varicose veins most commonly form in the legs as those veins have to work extensively to circulate the blood against gravity. So, while you are sitting or sleeping, elevate your legs to make it easier for the veins to pump the blood. 
    • If you are overweight or obese, try losing weight. The extra body weight increases the pressure inside the veins, which makes it harder to pump blood. 
    • Engage in physical activities frequently to improve your overall health by improving blood circulation. 
    • Quit smoking permanently. Tobacco can severely degrade vascular health and make the veins thin and weak. As a result, the valves will also become weak, eventually leading to serious venous problems. 
    • Wear compression stockings if your work involves prolonged standing or sitting. 
    • Do not wear tight clothes as they restrict the blood flow and increase the risk of developing spider veins and varicose veins. 

    If you follow these points, you will be able to manage the conditions at an early stage. But if you don’t get relief from the symptoms and the condition continues to progress, you should seek timely treatment from experts.
