Varicose veins, also known as swollen vascular disease, occur as a result of dilation of the vessels with large amounts of blood. The veins in which the varicose veins are mostly swollen and become blue or purple. Varicose veins cause pain if not controlled and untreated. Varicose veins, more common in women, are present in 25% of the adult population. In most cases, the varicose veins are seen in the lower leg.
The fact that the veins do not function properly can cause varices. There are one-way valves in the veins to prevent blood flowing in the opposite direction. When a problem occurs in these valves, the blood begins to accumulate in the veins instead of continuing on to the heart and swelling of the vessels occurs. The fact that the disease is more visible in the leg veins is caused by the fact that the veins in this region are at the most distant place of the heart and the gravity makes it difficult for the blood to flow upwards.
There are also various treatment modalities in which the doctors prefer to use the varicose veins rather than the varicose vein surgery, and the patient is not overwhelmed.
VenaBlock offers a comfortable treatment for varicose veins. In this method, a small needle cyanoacrylate adhesive is used to seal varicose veins.
This glue has been used as a safe medical adhesive for many years in other parts of the body. However, it has recently become available for varicose veins. No side effects were observed.
Unlike other endovenous procedures, such as laser or radiofrequency, VenaBlock does not require large volumes of anesthesia and in most patients, a single local anesthetic injection is sufficient to change needle entry, and the patient can resume normal daily work.
In short, VenaBlock offers a painless and easy treatment option compared to old varicose vein therapies.
