Diagnosis and Treatment of Venous Disease

 

 

 

Diagnosis of Venous Disease

 

In addition to clinical evaluation of the legs, varicose veins are evaluated for size and reflux using a noninvasive, painless technique called Venous Duplex Scanning.  This involves using a special ultrasound machine to examine each vein in the leg.

 

 

 

 

 

Treatment of Venous Disease

 

Treatment of venous disease usually involves a combination of treatment modalities. This can include the following:

 

- Compression stockings: these reduce swelling and help the leg veins pump blood better

 

- Radiofrequency ablation: An in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia. It involves inserting a catheter into the diseased vein and closing it off with readiofrequency energy.  The blood then goes to the healthier deep veins, and circulation is markedly improved.

 

Ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy: Injecting a diseased vein under ultrasound guidance using a chemical to close off the vein

 

- Mini-phlebectomy: An in-office procedure performed under local anesthesia in which sections of a diseased vein are removed via a series of mini-incisions

 

- Spider vein sclerosis: The small spider and reticular veins are injected with a very small amount of a foam chemical which causes them to dissolve.
