Cardiac Solutions Treats Venous Issues Surgically

In some cases, varicose and spider veins are cosmetic issues that don’t require treatment. However, varicose veins can indicate an underlying circulatory system issue like chronic venous insufficiency. Chronic venous insufficiency causes the walls or valves in the veins to become weak and infective, causing blood to pool in the ankles and feet and increasing the risk of complications like venous ulcers, varicose veins, and deep vein thrombosis. At Cardiac Solutions, our experienced cardiologists specialize in surgical varicose vein treatment in Sun City, Glendale, and Peoria, AZ. Call us today to learn more about the best treatment for varicose veins.

Venous Treatment in Peoria, AZ

What Is Endovenous Varicose Vein Surgery?

Endovenous varicose vein surgery, also called endovenous thermal ablation, is a low-risk leg vein treatment option that uses laser light or radiofrequency waves to seal off damaged or weakened veins. The procedure only requires a minor incision and has a low chance of complications or negative side effects. Endovenous varicose vein surgery is a safe alternative to more invasive methods of varicose vein treatment.

Understanding Chronic Venous Insufficiency

Chronic venous insufficiency is a cardiovascular condition that occurs when the veins in your leg are weakened or damaged and do not function properly. This causes blood to pool around your legs, ankles, and feet and increases the pressure in the veins in your legs. Without treatment and lifestyle changes, chronic venous insufficiency can cause complications like swelling, edema, and venous ulcers. You may develop chronic venous insufficiency if you have a medical issue or injury that affects the veins in your legs, or if you have a history of deep vein thrombosis. Without deep vein thrombosis treatment, the blood clot can damage the walls or valves in your leg veins. The most common symptoms of chronic venous insufficiency are a heavy feeling in your legs, cramping in your legs at night, achy or tired legs, discolored skin, leathery skin or itching skin, a burning or pins and needles feeling in your legs, or swelling or edema in your legs, ankles, and feet. If you have any of these symptoms, make an appointment with us for an examination and testing to determine if you have chronic venous insufficiency.

Varicose Veins and Venous Insufficiency

By ignoring symptoms of venous issues such as aching legs, leathery skin, new varicose veins, and swelling, you can jeopardize your health. These could be signs of venous insufficiency, leading to more dire consequences than sore legs. The team at Cardiac Solutions – with offices in Peoria, Sun City West, and Glendale – can help you determine why you are experiencing such symptoms and promote treatments to combat them. Early treatment can help improve your outlook and have a higher success rate. Contact us today to learn if such a procedure is right for you.

Procedure Details and Recovery Process

Because endovenous laser surgery is nonsurgical and minimally invasive, you will have a shorter recovery period. Most people don’t experience any pain or discomfort after the procedure and can resume some of their daily activities. Before the procedure, we will administer local anesthesia and a sedative to prevent pain or discomfort. We will use an ultrasound to find the veins that need to be treated. We will then make a small incision below your knee or near your ankle. We will insert a catheter into the incision and your vein. We will then insert a thin tool into the catheter. This tool will generate heat that seals off the vein. We will then inject numbing fluid around the vein and put a bandage over your incision. The entire treatment process may take around an hour.

What Happens After Endovenous Laser Varicose Vein Surgery

After vein pain in leg treatment with endovenous laser surgery, you will need to have someone drive you home. You may experience mild soreness or bruising afterwards, and you should avoid swimming or going in hot tubs until your incision heals. We also recommend keeping your leg elevated and wearing compression socks or stockings. We recommend avoiding strenuous activity and not traveling by plane for at least two weeks. Keep your leg elevated when possible and walk around frequently during the day. You can return to work within a few days, but you may have to modify your job duties during recovery. You will return to our office a week after the procedure to confirm that the vein was sealed.
