Stripping- in this procedure saphenous vein is cut and removed permanently. Saphenous vein carries blood from ankle to heart. This is the most affected veins. After removal of this vein anastomosis occurs and blood flow flows from another small veins.
Ambulatory phleectomy- In this procedure, markings done every after 10 centimetres over vein. 2-3 cm part of saphenous vein is cut and removed. A fter every cut the adges approximated. This leads to straighten the vein.
Sclerotherapy – sclerosing agent used for this purpose . Sclerosing agent is taken in the syringe, with the help of the needle sclerosing agent is injected into the vein . This is injected every after 5 cm into the vein . After that procedure vein gets shrink and reduces their swelling.
Intravenous thermal ablation – In this procedure, heat is produced in the affected veins. With the help of that heat , Swollen veins gets shrink and loses their curlyness. It also hardens the veins.
For thermal ablation there are three types. First is laser treatment, second is radioactive frequency and third is steam ablation. All the above are intended to make heat in veins.
This is the time for final conclusion. Which treatment is best and effective? if you are in early stage of Varicose veins. Then conservative therapy is best. That is elevation of legs, Crepe bandage and Elastic stockings. This works really well , but you have to continue this treatment for 3 months at least.
If you are alcoholic then give up alcohol. If your job is standing, then change it immediately. For obese persons, there is nothing important than weight loss.
For long-standing and severe blue veins , there is a best treatment. This is steam thermal operation. This is safest af all and most effective. It has duration of action more than 5 years. You can extend it with proper do’s and don’ts.
The second best treatment is sclerotherapy. It is also safe but has smaller duration of action. Steam and sclerotherapy are the most preferable treatments.
If and only if , these two fails then and then only, you have to go with radioactive frequency and laser therapy. These are less effective but you can try this
The other two treatments , which are stripping and Ambulatory phlebectomy are best avoided. I don’t recommend this treatments anymore. Because these treatments caries higher risk of complications. There are many more side effects and less effectiveness.
