Evolution in the treatment of varicose veins

. The most important of this new technique was that it was considered essential to use Doppler ultrasound to perform a thorough analysis of the venous circulation.

These veins, until then, had been considered the culprits of the origin of the varices and for that reason had been the veins to extract of almost systematic form. . . . . . . There are many different systems and procedures to treat varicose veins today, most of which claim to be non-aggressive, avoiding skin wounds.


The variety of techniques available allows the specialist in angiology and vascular surgery to choose, in each case, the best treatment. It is important to emphasize that each person has or can present different anatomical situations, may have different social or labor needs. . This treatment is the only one that can be applied to virtually all types of varicose veins, whether small or large. It is also the least aggressive technique, since it is performed in the consultation and does not use any type of analgesia, being totally painless. It is only necessary to take into account that it is a progressive treatment, whose results appear after several sessions. This can be a disadvantage compared to other techniques that have a faster effect but will require surgery and some kind of anesthesia.
