We Indians usually tend not to think of our veins until a real problem develops. Most of my patients on their first visit to me with really bad looking varicose veins will still keep on saying that “डॉक्टर साहब बस ये नसो का गुच्छा दिख रहा है वैसे मुझे कोई दिक्कत तो नही है”. However most patients are unaware and don’t know that these enlarged veins, if left untreated, may cause painful symptoms including bruising, burning, throbbing, tiredness, or swelling & heaviness in the legs – affecting quality of life for many it may lead to life threatening situations like deep vein thrombosis, heavy bleeding from ruptured (फटना ) varicose veins and non healing venous ulcers (जख्म).

Since last 15 years I have been observing that patients only come for treatment at very late stage with symptoms of massive bleeding from leg or ulcer formation. Also there is a big myth among general public that even if they undergo treatment of varicose veins it will recur. The most common question they ask is “ Doctor Sahab kyai ska ilaj successful hai kya? Humne suna hai ki yeh doobra ho jati hai?. The answer to these FAQ are that LASER or RFA or MOCA are the best available and most successful treatment options available today and the chance of recurrence is almost nil. The small residual or recurrent varicosities can be treated on OPD basis with just simple injections called as sclerotherapy.

Vein problems also cause spider veins, varicose veins, and many other types of vascular disease. Complicated varicose veins, appear like twisted, bulging red or blue ropes that can be swollen and raised even above the skin surface. Varicose veins are found predominantly on the legs – backs of knees, backs of calves or the inside of the leg.

What is Varicose Vein?

Varicose veins occur due to weaken valves in veins that transport blood to flow back down into the legs. When too much blood flows back into your legs, the leg veins become swollen, painful, and cosmetically unappealing.

Varicose veins may cause swelling, heaviness, pain, dark areas on the skin, and in severe cases, skin ulceration & bleeding.

Varicose veins in India

Varicose Veins are neglected by general physicians and patients due to lack of pain in the initial stages of the disease. Pain appears in late stages when complications take place.

Those with a family history of varicose veins vein problems ( Genetic or hereditary varicose veins ) Varicose vein symptoms can worsen over time and in severe cases, can lead to swollen ankles, skin discoloration and ulceration.

What Causes Varicose Veins?

Unhealthy and weak valves are the main cause of varicose vein. Vein valves can become damaged from natural stretching or weakening from the pressure of blood flowing through the veins. Blood pooling starts in your legs and pressure builds up, due to weak valves in the vein. Due to this veins become large in size, twisted and weak. Varicose veins often appear through the skin on a person’s legs as blue, bulging and twisted veins; in some cases the veins may be raised or stand out on the surface of the skin.

Know About Laser Treatment Offered By Dr. Sheorain:

Through a single needle puncture that leaves no scar.

LASER treatment: Under appropriate anesthesia the vein to be treated is punctured by a small needle under ultrasound guidance. Then the most advanced LASER or RFA or MOCA is activated & the fiber is slowly withdrawn at a specific speed so as to give adequate energy to ablate the inner lining of the diseased vein. Entire procedure takes about 30 to 40 minutes.

AFTER TREATMENT: Patient starts walking immediately after anesthesia effects weans off & can resume daily activities from next day. Daily walking & light exercises should be undertaken. Never massage or and avoid squeezing of legs post varicose vein treatment. Use custom made graded pressure venous stockings to support the legs. Legs should be slightly elevated while sleeping.

POSTOPERATIVE COURSE: One should expect some bruising along the treated vein during few days of LASER Treatment. There may be area of numbness on the inside of ankle that may last from few days up to 3 months. From about 48 hours onwards, the treated area on the inside of thigh & leg becomes slightly swollen & inflamed. After successful treatment of varicose vein, patient experience a pulling sensation along the vein, as the vein starts shrinking lengthwise. If proper postoperative leg exercises are continued then there is almost total recovery of these symptoms.
