Noting that varicose veins are seen at the same rate in men and women, but women apply more to the hospital, Dr. Erdoুan noted that varicose veins are a disorder commonly seen in the legs and it occurs when the veins in the legs become visible on the skin as a result of growth. Emphasizing that this dilation of veins is essentially a pathological precursor to an underlying vascular disease, Erdoুan said that varicose veins occur for a variety of reasons. Erdoুan explained the following reasons:
“When there is a problem with the veins in the veins during the flow of blood from the legs to the groin, the blood flows in the opposite direction due to the veins in the legs, causing the veins to dilate and become veins. Visible from the surface of the skin. It causes problems like pain, swelling and restlessness. Genetic factors, weight, inactivity, working in a hot environment, standing too much are all factors that cause this problem.
Regular walking prevents varicose veins
Noting that walking strengthens the leg muscles and is very effective in directing blood flow (from the legs to the groin), Erdoুu said that a person who walks constantly is less likely to see varicose veins. In some cases, even if there is no image on the surface of the skin, there is a possibility of starting varicose veins, Erdoুu said: “It is easy to treat this problem at an early stage. Symptoms of varicose veins include standing in the heat, standing for long periods of time, or feeling pain, restlessness, and numbness in the legs during the evening.
Noting that it is not possible to completely prevent the formation of varicose veins, said. However, taking precautions such as not standing too much, walking, sitting with legs extended without bending the knees and trying not to stand in a very hot environment will help prevent varicose veins. He said.
Erdoুan, who also provided information on the methods used to diagnose the disease, said:
“We can diagnose with an ultrasound device that does not harm our patients. In this review, we measure the diameter of the superficial veins. The larger the diameter, the more advanced the disease. We evaluate the direction of blood flow inside and the amount of leakage and the general condition of the veins. We decide what kind of treatment we will use in the light of the results obtained from here. ” Used phrases.
There are two different methods of treatment.
Noting that the treatment of varicose veins is divided into cosmetic and efficacy, Erdoুan noted that cosmetic treatments are for most female patients, such as laser burns and injecting foam. The purpose of effective treatment is to eliminate the pathological problems that cause varicose veins, Erdoুan explained.
“It is not currently possible to reverse the direction of reverse blood flow. Therefore, in effective treatment, the vessels that cause reverse blood flow problems from the groin to the legs stop working. We surgically remove the vein between the groin and the knee.” Since this vein is an extra vein, patients have no problem removing it. Another method we use to remove this vein is to fill the vein with a cathedral and remove the vein activation. We operate for half an hour with lumbar anesthesia. They may return to normal after 3 days. Or they may have some veins closed by injecting some medication. This is a procedure that requires almost no anesthesia. The treatment should be decided on patient basis. Less. Many patients also use drug therapy. These drugs do not cure the disease, but they do help reduce the pain experienced by the patients. “
