FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS OF OUR CLIENTS
Are varicose veins removed from the genitals during pregnancy?
In pregnancy, most cases are solved conservatively, i.e. without surgery. After birth, the improvement of the condition sometimes occurs, but if the problem persists, treatment by sclerotization, laser, radiofrequency or the Clarivein system is applied. However, it is advisable to undergo an examination with a vascular surgeon as soon as the first difficulty occurs.
What causes varicose veins?
Varicose veins are produced by increasing venous pressure in the superficial venous system as a result of backflow from deep veins through the non-closing venous valve, the so-called reflux. In layman's terms, the blood ceases to flow in one direction and returns, there is increased venous pressure in the superficial veins, and, consequently varices arise. Both genetics and lifestyle - little movement, sedentary work, being overweight, hormonal contraception, smoking, and the number of pregnancies have an influence on whether or not varicose veins appear.
How is the initial examination by a vascular surgeon performed?
The basics include an interview and finding out what the difficulties are. With exaggeration, treatment occurs through merely a handshake. This is followed by a detailed ultrasonographic examination, where we look for the exact cause of the difficulties and the formation of varicose veins. Then we can tailor the appropriate treatment. At the same time, patients are interested in the expected success. We talk about possible complications and we put together the realistically expected result. The procedure itself is predominantly outpatient, only under local anesthesia or, in case of using glue on the veins, completely without anesthesia.
