What is Venous Insufficiency?

This condition, which can be chronic, occurs when veins become weak and no longer allow blood to flow back to the heart. There are several stages of chronic insufficiency ranging from spider veins to varicose veins and even more severe symptoms. Those suffering from chronic venous insufficiency may experience symptoms, typically in the legs, including swelling, pain, cramps, or ulcers in more severe cases.

What causes Venous Insufficiency?

This vascular condition can be caused by a wide variety of factors, including genetics, sedentary lifestyle, pregnancy, obesity, or smoking. In some cases, it can also be caused by blood clots, injury or surgery in the area, or chronic high blood pressure in the leg veins due to lengthy periods of sitting or standing.

How is Venous Insufficiency treated?

There are multiple minimally invasive ways that venous insufficiency can be treated safely and effectively.

Endovenous Ablation for Venous Insufficiency

This treatment involves using radiofrequency waves or a laser tool to cauterize and close off varicose veins, which results in blood rerouting to functional veins. During treatment, local anesthesia is administered, tiny incisions are made in the leg, and then a catheter is inserted into the incision and the ablative tool through the catheter.

Other Non-Surgical Treatment for Venous Insufficiency

In the very early stages, we will often attempt to use completely non-invasive methods first to treat the issue. Treatments may include compression therapy, where compression wraps or pumps are used to try to reroute blood flow. There are also certain medications that can be prescribed to help with this condition.

Microphlebectomy for Venous Insufficiency

Another slightly more invasive but still non-surgical procedure for venous insufficiency is microphlebectomy. This procedure involves making small incisions very close to the problem veins, then using a special hook tool to physically extract the twisted veins from the area.

Sclerotherapy for Venous Insufficiency

Another possible minimally invasive treatment is sclerotherapy, where a special solution is injected into the problem veins. This solution causes the veins to build scar tissue and ultimately collapse, so blood naturally begins to flow through healthy veins instead.
