Varicose Vein Treatment That Gets to the Source
Since varicose veins are usually caused by leaking one-way valves, vein treatment involves removal of the bad valve to minimize the risk of veins returning. Since it is not generally possible to repair or replace a bad vein valve, the vein containing the bad valve must be eliminated for varicose vein treatment. One of the more common locations for a bad valve is in the groin where the saphenous vein joins the main femoral vein. To effectively treat this bad valve, the saphenous vein from the groin to the knee must be removed or destroyed. There are several methods for accomplishing leg vein removal.
One method, Saphenous Vein Removal, involves the removal of the saphenous vein through two incisions made in the leg. When used in concert with the TriVex procedure, recovery time and bruising are considerably minimized. Other procedures for varicose vein removal, such as TCI, are less invasive while incurring less discomfort and bruising than traditional vein stripping.
