Endolaser or radiofrequency treatment for varicose veins (2 legs)

DEFINITION:

Varicose veins are veins that have become dilated by blood accumulates when venous valves that push blood toward the heart stop working properly. Varicose veins can be treated surgically or with endolaser.

DESCRIPTION:

Endolaser treatment involves inserting an optical fiber into the damaged vein to weld it and keep the blood flowing through it. The useless vein is reabsorbed by the body about two months later.

The procedure needs less than one hour and is performed under local anesthesia.

BEFORE THE PROCEDURE

 Patients must undergo a preliminary assessment and specific tests such as ultrasound to evaluate their case and the most appropriate technique for treating varicose veins.

Furthermore, they must undergo a standard preoperative study that includes blood tests, electrocardiogram, etc.

Also, if they have any chronic illness or regularly take medications, especially anticoagulants, they should inform the surgeon before surgery.

AFTER THE PROCEDURE:

After the surgery, patients should wear compression stockings for a few days. They also have to walk 20 or 30 minutes at least twice a day.
