Innovations in Varicose Vein Treatment: The Advantages of Flowcare’s Latest Techniques

Varicose vein is a common medical condition that affects millions worldwide. This directly impacts mobility and causes discomfort in day-to-day life. With the development of medical technology, innovative treatments have been introduced and revolutionised to treat this common yet painful medical issue. 

Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA)

Endovenous Laser Ablation is one such groundbreaking technique. This minimally invasive procedure involves using laser energy to close off faulty veins, redirecting blood flow to healthier vessels. It boasts high success rates and shorter recovery periods compared to traditional surgeries.

Benefits of EVLA

  • In general, EVLA is very convenient than than conventional surgery. During the procedure , patients usually only feel slight pain, which may be controlled with a local anaesthetic.
  • Research indicates that EVLA is a highly effective treatment for varicose veins, with over 95% long-term success rates.
  • This treatment option is quick and you can continue your day-to-day tasks immediately.

Despite various advantages, this technique has its drawbacks which are as follows. 

Drawbacks of EVLA

  • Bruising and Swelling: After opting for this treatment, some patients may experience bruising, swelling, or discomfort in the treated area which are very minimal and controlled by anti inflammatory. 
  • Probability of paraesthesia: There’s a small risk of damaging nearby nerves during the EVLA procedure. Due to nerve damage, individuals can feel numbness, tingling, or other sensory changes in the treated area. 
  • Varicose vein recurrence: Although EVLA effectively closes off the treated vein,but chances of 10% recurrence are there.

Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA)

Another impactful method gaining traction is Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA). Like EVLA, RFA uses heat generated by radiofrequency to block problematic veins, offering a less invasive alternative and ensuring quicker recovery times. 

Advantages of RFA

  1. Minimal invasiveness: This technique reduces the level of pain occurrence during other treatments. RFA is typically performed using small needles or probes that minimize the pain.
  2. Quick recovery: Patients recover fast or in a shorter period compared to traditional surgical procedures.

Sclerotherapy

Under this treatment, a special liquid or foam sclerosant is injected into veins by intravenous injection. This method targets varicose vein’s chemical ablation. Moreover, foam sclerotherapy, combining a special foam with a sclerosing agent, effectively treats varicose veins by collapsing the affected vessels. Here are the advantages and disadvantages of this treatment:

Advantages of Sclerotherapy

  • Versatility: Sclerotherapy can be used to treat varicose veins of various sizes and severity.
  • Cosmetic Improvement: Another benefit of this treatment option is that varicose veins can look better with sclerotherapy, leaving skin cleaner and smoother. 

Drawbacks of Sclerotherapy

  • Multiple Sessions: While some patients may see improvement after one session, others may require multiple sclerotherapy sessions to achieve optimal results. 
  • Side-effects: This treatment option causes certain side-effects like swelling, bruising and skin discolouration. 

How FlowCare’s Innovative Technique Makes A Difference:

Cyanoacrylate  or Glue

This medical adhesive-based procedure is one of the recently popular varicose veins treatment options. Cyanoacrylate adhesive is medical glue that is used to seal the vein shut. This eliminates the need for thermal or mechanical energy and makes it a less painful option for patients. It is also known as VenaSeal. 

Advantages of Cyanoacrylate

  • Eliminate Pain: Since the glue is injected directly into the vein, there’s usually minimal discomfort during the procedure. 
  • Quick Procedure: Cyanoacrylate glue treatment is usually fast, often taking less time compared to other methods. 
  • Fast recovery: By opting for this method, individuals can resume their day-to-day work after a few hours or days. This reduces the healing period and enables a patient to recover fast. 
  • Pain relief treatment: Cyanoacrylate successfully reduces chronic pain by treating nerve endings that are causing pain.
  • Improved appearance: By closing off the varicose vein, Cyanoacrylate can improve the appearance of the skin. It reduces the visibility of bulging and discoloured veins.
  • High success rates: As per the medical studies Cyanoacrylate is highly effective in treating varicose veins. This treatment option has success rates ranging from 85% to 98%.

Disadvantages of Cyanoacrylate 

  • Allergy Reactions: While uncommon, cyanoacrylate glue allergies can occur in certain people. Before receiving this therapy, patients must disclose to their doctor any known allergies.
  • Restricted Availability and High Cost: Not all healthcare facilities may have access to cyanoacrylate glue therapy. Some people may not be able to get this therapy due to the high cost or the need to locate specific clinics or centres.

Conclusion 

For people suffering from varicose veins, Venaseal is an innovative treatment option. It ensures minimizes scarring, minimizes downtime, and promotes patient comfort. Therefore, Cyanoacrylate is a cutting-edge procedure that marks the beginning of a new age of successful and minimally invasive operations. It also offers a high success rate with quick recovery and pain relief treatment. 

However, consult with a medical expert to find the most appropriate one for your illness. The doctor takes into account variables such as vein size, location, and general health while making decisions.
