¿, the method consisting in Clarivein


The surgery of varices has been evolving towards less invasive techniques. Currently we have an option that combines two methods: a ablation mechanics that generates a severe spasm of the vein and a chemical ablation with sclerosing liquid. This is the system Clarivein. In our team we combine this method with sclerosis through microfoam for the elimination of dependent varices.

¿may treat any varices


The Clarivein system is especially designed to treat all types of truncal varices that depend on insufficient saphenous axis (most ), but given its great navigability can treat even other varices.

¿are the advantages


The philosophy of treatment with Clarivein system is similar to that of other options like Endolaser or RF, in which the effect is achieved within browsing veins but unlike these, which are based on a thermal ablation, Clarivein does not generate heat. This avoids all possible secondary complications to heat, such as damage to adjacent tissue or nerve injury. Also not have any type of anesthesia is needed, even tumescent local anesthesia. Nor incisions are made, as the device enters by direct puncture.

¿That care must continue after treatment


The patient can lead a normal life after treatment, should only take an elastic compression stocking for a few weeks. It is not even necessary off work. We recommend avoiding prolonged biped, especially if it is standing stationary.

¿How long does the treatment¿? 's final


The definitive treatment is. Still need to know that varicose veins, given its high heritability, have a percentage of recurrence of between 15 and 20%. This item can be independent of the surgical technique that has been used.
