New Non-Surgical Treatments for Varicose Veins

New Non-Surgical Interventional Options for Varicose Vein Treatment by Dr. Amit Sahu, Senior Interventional Radiologist in Mumbai

Have you noticed bulging, twisted veins on your legs or ankles? These may be varicose veins, a common condition affecting millions of people. While not always a medical concern, varicose veins can cause discomfort, aching, and detract from the appearance of your legs. Varicose veins can be both a cosmetic concern and a serious medical problem.

What are Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins occur when valves in your veins become weak or damaged, causing blood to pool and enlarge the veins. They are most commonly found in the legs and ankles but can appear elsewhere.

Factors like pregnancy, obesity, family history and prolonged standing or sitting can increase your risk of developing varicose veins.

Why Consider Non-Surgical Interventional Treatment for Varicose Veins?

If you’re looking for relief from varicose veins, non-surgical interventional treatment options offer a variety of benefits. These procedures are minimally invasive, meaning they involve only injection with no cuts, stitches and quicker recovery times compared to traditional surgery.

Additionally, non-surgical treatments often result in less scarring. These treatments are performed under real time ultrasound guidance allowing to make accurate treatments and monitor the treatment.

This makes them a good option not only for medical reasons but also for better cosmetic outcomes compared to traditional surgery.

  1. Sclerotherapy: This treatment involves injecting a solution (sclerosant) into the varicose vein. The sclerosant irritates the vein lining, causing it to collapse and seal shut. Sclerotherapy is most effective for smaller varicose veins and spider veins.
  2. RadioFrequency Ablation (RFA): RFA uses RadioFrequency(RF) waves delivered through a thin catheter inserted into the vein. The RF waves heat the vein wall, causing it to close. This is a minimally invasive procedure performed on an outpatient basis, with a quick recovery time.
  3. Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA): It is similar to RFA. EVLA uses an even smaller catheter compared to RFA. EVLA uses laser energy instead of radiofrequency waves to heat and close the vein. This procedure is effective for treating larger, toutuous varicose veins and offers minimal discomfort and downtime.
  4. Glue based treatment (Venaseal, Venablock) – This involves inserting a catheter into the vein like in EVLA & RFA, but it uses glue-like medical liquid adhesive that helps to close the vein. It requires a lesser number of injections and has lesser requirement of stockings after procedure. Results are comparable to EVLA, RFA.
  5. Phlebectomy: This minimally invasive procedure involves removing small varicose veins through tiny incisions. Phlebectomy is often performed in conjunction with other procedures like EVLA.
