What are varicose veins? Laser varicose vein surgery. Poland. Part I.

 are varicose veins?

Varicose veins are enlarged and often twisted affected, as amended veins lying over the muscle fascia. There are also intradermal varices (wenulektazje, commonly known as "spiders"), Reticular vessels under the skin, varicose veins sidings and the maintrunk veins: the saphenous vein and saphenous vein.
It is estimated that in Europe for varicose disease suffer 50% of the population.. Left untreated, years lived in old age can cause serious diseases such as thromboembolic complications, edema, and hard to heal ulcers.

Symptoms may take different forms, but usually these are:
- feeling of heaviness in the legs
- hypertonia in the limbs
- leg pain
- leg cramps
- feeling of restlessness in the legs.
Symptoms tend to a deterioration in the passage of years. Often small varicose veinscan produce severe pain and vice versa. Advanced varicose veins may be asymptomatic. Therefore, from time to time, control posts, should be done with Dopplerultrasound to examine the normal blood flow in the veins.

Laser varicose vein surgery
The first laser treatment to remove varicose veins at the turn of 2001-2002 conducted, doctors in the U.S..
Since this year began laser surgery effectively displace the traditional method called.stripping, which involves pulling the saphenous vein or the saphenous.   Traditionalmethod is still used in European hospitals, due to the low cost of operation.
Traditional method is less comfortable for the patient than surgery performed by laser,because it requires full anesthesia, anesthesia, or at least in the spine, the surgeon mustperform multiple cuts, which causes postoperative pain, the patient must be hospitalizedseveral days and recovery takes about a month.

The laser treatment applied under local anesthesia, takes between 30 minutes to an hour and the patient goes home immediately. The next day you can return to daily activities. Pain after surgery is practically reduced to a minimum, because the surgeonperforming the operation only performs an incision or puncture near the knee, not exceeding 5 mm.

In the next post I write, what is the advantage of laser vein surgery, the commonly used inEurope srippingiem. In brief, the interview will be with the vascular surgeon whoperformed the operations just laser varicose veins.
