    Varicose Veins
• What causes Varicose/Spider Veins?
  – Chronic Venous insufficiency - blood flows backwards in the vein
    causing them to bulge and twist


• Risk Factors
  – Gender-estimated 25-50% of women and 15-40% of men suffer
    from Varicose Veins
  – Heredity
  – Pregnancy
  – Age
  – Obesity
  – Occupation-standing for prolonged periods
Normal vs. Abnormal Flow
        Symptoms
• Leg pain/ache
• Leg/ankle
         swelling
• Discoloration of
         lower leg
• Ulcers
• Bulging veins
            Treatments
• Vein Stripping
  – Old treatment, not commonly used anymore due to extreme pain
    and long recovery time

• EVLT (Endovenous Laser Treatment)
  –   Minimally invasive
  –   Quicker Recovery
  –   Done in office, under local anesthetic
  –   Covered by most insurances

• Phlebectomy
• Ligation
       Spider Veins
• Spider Vein treatments
  offered at Renovo:
  – Sclerotherapy:
    solution that is injected into
    the vein that causes the vein
    walls to swell, stick together
    and seal shut.
  – Laser Vein: strong
    bursts of light are sent into
    the vein which makes them
    slowly fade.
        How to Prevent Venous
                Insufficiency
•   Exercise regularly/walk
•   Avoid standing for prolonged periods
•   Weight control
•   Nothing you can do about genetics
•   I will be happy to answer questions after
    the rest of the program
