Penetrates "inside" of the skin at the site of vessel injury, product bonding inflamed phase that leads to the cessation of its operation.

Before surgery, the patient cleanse the bowel and investigations of allergic reactions to drugs. The operation begins with the long-cut up to five inches of the groin and the length of two inches is ankle. Other incisions are made under the big venous knots. The incisions shallow and narrow. Through an incision in the groin injected in the portal vein the venous extractor (in the subtle form of procrastination with a round tip at the end). With the help of this tool, the surgeon removes the affected vein. Then on the cuts closed with stitches and the operation is finished. Of course, the leg is closed with a bandage, sterile, and from above impose an elastic bandage. After 1-2 days the patient can already move by themselves.

Sclerotherapy — painless removal of varicose veins

Today, a special popularity acquired echo-guided sclerotherapy— treatment of varicose veins injections. When this is inserted into the vein substance sclerosant, which destroys the inner layer of the blood vessels, after which the intermediate layers grow together and form opadanie of vienna. This method is the trickiest, but to get a long-term effect it is necessary to perform a series of procedures and need about six months for rehabilitation. This type of intervention, as well as foam sclerotherapy can be used only in the presence of veins of small diameter and with a large number of "varicose veins". Injected in the vein, I have a bad cough, sclerosing, the effectiveness of which is increased due to the large increase in the surface area of interaction with the inner side of the vessel. And also, in virtue of its particular consistency of the foam has been long delayed in the vessel, increasing the exposure time to the medication to the affected area blood. Therefore, when the foam sclerotherapy in the number of sessions is significantly reduced.

The use of laser in phlebology

The more modern method of removal of veins, laser, intravascular laser coagulation. The surface of vienna from the inside is processed with a laser barely perceptible puncture. By the high temperature of the laser in a moment, the blood boils and ferments wall problem of the ship for its entire length. Very rarely the damage during the operations, close the vessel or nerve. But this complication is completely excluded from a qualified expert.

  • Extraction through a small puncture with the use of a hook.
  • The removal of a fragment from the affected areas with the help of very small cuts.
  • Combined method. Involves a combination of these methods and laser.

The hardening

The hardening allows you to fill the jar therapeutic use of a substance that prevents the blood stream and reduces the diameter of the pathological area. In this case, apply 2 medicine — sclerotherapy and foam. The first substance medicine the hill the walls of the veins, and the second only fills an area, resulting in its blockage. Both types of drugs administered through a small puncture. The exact location of the problem can be detected using doppler. The hardening allows you to fill the jar therapeutic use of a substance that prevents the blood stream and reduces the diameter of the pathological area.


Stripping is carried out with the aid of a small probe, which is inserted through a small incision and paste the pathological stage of the ship, then exposed on the surface and is removed. Another type of operation — cryotrapping. In the course of an intervention in vienna, the injected liquid nitrogen, which brings the region to degradation and makes it non-functional. The process takes about 40 minutes. They do it under general anesthesia, and with the use of local anesthesia.

  • The doctor produces local anesthesia by the introduction of the injection of Novocaine.
  • With the help of a long needle made puncture. The syringe is introduced to the desired depth. Then takes place the injection of the drug. Immediately after the venous the walls begin to stick together. And only in that place, where is located pathological area.
  • Specialist requires a close bandage and send the patient home.

When sclerotherapy with the help of a long needle the puncture, and is injected the drug, the adhesive, the walls of the blood vessels. Flebectomia implies more a minimally invasive operation. If the volume of pathologically altered tissue large, and then apply the technique, which involves 2-3 of the incision. If you have a small snippet using a small hook. The operation can be carried out under the town and local anesthesia. In the first place is carried out antiseptic treatment of the limb. After that the affected area vienna recovered on and remove, if necessary by the application of the seams. Laser coagulation is performed step-by-step even under general or local anesthesia. After the relief from the pain of a lost limb, treat, antiseptic, and through a small puncture slowly advance the subtle transactions, which powers the laser. Reaching the problem of the hearth, a light-guide, it dissolves the wall of the vessel under the action of heat. As A result of a vessel, closed, and decreases in diameter. The hardening is similar to the procedure of sclerotherapy. But in the first case you use different substances depending on the nature of the problem. Connect vienna the drug is injected with the help of needle and local application of pain relief. Control for handling, the doctor performs when you run the monitoring process on the monitor screen. The operation requires no more than 30-40 minutes. Stripping involves a small cut or puncture. It all depends on the mass scale. Stripping involves a small cut or puncture.
