However, you may be suffering from venous disease, which can show up as varicose veins. They are the result of damaged veins, the valves of which are either faulty or no longer working, so the blood is not moving properly back up from the legs towards the heart. Instead, the blood pools and even reverses in those veins. Varicose veins are usually found in the superficial veins of the legs, which are subject to high pressure when standing, although they can also appear elsewhere. This can have a significant effect on your lifestyle. They can be both a cosmetic issue, making you want to hide your legs, and a medical issue, which can lead to to pain when standing, leg swelling, inflammation, discoloration, venous eczema, skin thickening, and ulceration. At Meadows Surgical Arts, Dr. Meadows is proud to offer Venefit Targeted Endovenous Therapy, a minimally-invasive surgery using the VNUS Closure® procedure. This involves inserting a small catheter through a single, small injection to seal the vein shut, leaving the vein in place. Once the defective vein is sealed shut, blood flow in that area immediately diverts to healthy veins. The defective, closed vein becomes scar tissue and is eventually absorbed by the body. This procedure is done on an outpatient basis using local or regional anesthesia. Downtime is minimal, with patients usually returning to normal activities within a day. Another effective treatment is sclerotherapy, which involves injecting medicine into the veins to make them shrink. This is a non-invasive procedure that can take as little as 10 minutes per session and usually involves minimal downtime.
