Venous DiseaseConsult Now
Venous diseases are conditions that arise from pathologies of the veins. Veins are the blood vessels that carry blood from the organs back to the heart. They are the vessels that carry back the deoxygenated blood at low pressure
Veins are flexible, hollow tubes with flaps inside called valves. When your muscles contract, the valves open and allow blood to move through the veins. When your muscles relax, the valves close, keeping blood flowing in one direction through the veins. Veins become larger and larger as they get closer to the heart. The superior vena cava is the large vein that brings blood from the head and arms to the heart, and the inferior vena cava brings blood from the abdomen and legs into the heart.
Symptoms of Venous diseases
Symptoms of venous disease include:
- Varicose Veins : Enlarged, swollen, knotted clusters of purple veins; edema (swelling in the legs); aching or a sensation of heaviness in the legs; itching skin above the affected veins; skin discoloration and ulcers on the inner aspect of the ankles (in advanced cases).
- Superficial thrombophlebitis: A red, engorged, cordlike vein, associated with localized swelling, pain or tenderness.
- Deep-vein thrombophlebitis: Generalized swelling, warmth and redness in the affected limb; distention of superficial veins; bluish skin color in the limb or toes (cyanosis); and rarely, fever and chills.

Venous diseases treatments
As shared earlier, the goal of surgical treatments is to open the affected artery. This can be achieved through different treatments.
- Radiofrequency Ablation :
- Venaseal Treatment:
- Lymphapress Therapy:
Embolectomy surgery is a procedure undertaken to remove an embolus, which is a blockage in the artery. An embolus is any form of mass that is unattached to the vessel walls and is capable of blocking it. An embolus could be a blood clot. air bubble, piece of fatty deposit or any other object carried in the vessel. Removing such an embolus with an emergency surgery is called embolectomy
Venaseal is one of the latest treatments available for varicose veins. It involves the injection of a medical gel based glue into the varicose vein, with the purpose of occluding the vein. Once the vein is occluded, blood supply from the vein stops and so do the associated problems. Once the vein is blocked, the reverse flow of blood stops and it cures the diseased vein. This is an FDA approved procedure and is covered by all health insurance providers.
In the lymphapress therapy treatment, the limb is covered with a sleeve that has 8 to 10 cuffs that are sequentially inflated. The pressure as it goes up is made to reach up to 120 mm of mercury. This squeezes the limb and removes the excess fluid that has accumulated in and around the soft tissue.
