Have you noticed a visible vascular pattern on your legs and are you worried? Correctly. Most likely, these are the first signs of a very unpleasant pathology – varicose veins. Or maybe they didn’t pay attention to small bluish vessels, and now you are tormented by swelling and pain, and the lower leg itself was crowned with ugly blue knots? These are no longer bells, but the cry of vessels for help.
This assistance is offered to you by the Baltic Vein Clinic located in Riga. Professionals – phlebologists, using the latest achievements of medical science, will save you from varicose veins of the lower extremities.
What do we offer
Varicose veins in the legs can be treated in different ways. Perhaps at home you used some kind of ointment, rubbing, but the effect was short-lived and unstable.
The phlebologists of our clinic use all the methods known in the world for the treatment of varicose veins. Conservative treatment is used to treat unopened varicose veins.
Varicose vein treatment
1. Medical treatment
After a detailed diagnosis and consultation with a phlebologist, you will be prescribed adequate treatment. The doctor will prescribe the necessary drugs, explain how to use them correctly.
2. Compression therapy
Sometimes in the initial stages, as well as after surgery for varicose veins, doctors recommend wearing compression underwear. But this is not a simple element of the wardrobe; only a competent specialist should select it. Doctors of the Baltic Clinic will take into account the specifics of your illness and tell you how to use compression to achieve the maximum therapeutic effect. To determine the specific size, the clinic uses modern equipment Bodytrinic 600 . Directly from us after measuring the size, you can buy compression underwear. And in the case of non-standard sizes, we will place an order for its manufacture in Germany.
A very popular method among patients. It is based on the introduction of drugs – sclerosants into the diseased vessel. As a result of the injection, the vessel will completely cease to function. The blood supply to the limb will be established “bypassing” the diseased vein.
Sclerotherapy helps to eliminate a cosmetic defect – the blue on the lower leg disappears without a trace. Along with the traditional liquid sclerotherapy technique, the clinic successfully uses a fairly new, foam technique.
It is performed under the control of ultrasonography, and it affects the walls of blood vessels more actively. Unlike liquid, which is not able to completely close large varicose branches, the foam technique allows you to do this. And as a result, avoid surgery.
Surgery of varicose vein
Modern surgical treatment of veins at the Baltic Clinic is not at all the classic surgical care that you imagine. The latest equipment that we use has made it possible to make phlebological operations minimally invasive, i.e. with minimal penetration into the body.
- The Varadi operation involves a miniphlebectomy. To remove the affected vessel, the doctor uses only 2 or 3 skin incisions.
- EVLT – using diode lasers, vein coagulation is performed. The method is called endovenous laser surgery .
- Venaseal system – closing the lumen of the diseased vein using biological glue.
- SVS – endovenous thermal occlusion with steam impulses .
- RFO and EVRF – radiofrequency vein obliteration .
Apparently, there is no point in explaining the subtleties of surgical treatment by the listed methods. They are well known by the phlebologists of the vein clinic, and they are well versed in the technique of performing operations.
Doctors of the clinic are ready to take into account the preferences of patients in choosing a method of treating varicose veins. However, the phlebologist must still make the final choice, taking into account the individual characteristics of the person and the specific indications for the method of treatment he has chosen. Not only accurate diagnosis is required , but also a visual examination of the patient. You can reduce the examination time by sending us the test results in electronic form.
Waiting for a trip
Before going for treatment to the Baltic Vein Clinic, and in general, there are a few things you can do for yourself:
- Avoid uncomfortable shoes.
- Move enough. And remember – that work in the country is an ally of varicose veins. It is there that you are in one uncomfortable position for a long time, bending over on straight legs.
- Do not stay in the same position for more than forty minutes.
- Get rid of the habit of sitting cross-legged.
- When resting lying down, try to give the lower limbs an elevated position.
- Drink enough water.
- Do a variety of foot exercises.
These simple guidelines are universal. They will help not only patients before the treatment of varicose veins, but also those who do not want to get acquainted with the disease. Such simple prevention is very effective. Do not neglect it and acquaint your relatives with the rules.
Treatment at the Baltic Clinic can be combined with the next vacation at the main job. You will return from your trip refreshed and rejuvenated. With an easy gait, good mood and without any traces of varicose veins on the legs.
