Endovenous Laser Therapy Used for Treatment of Varicose Veins
Date:10/7/2009

Individuals with varicose veins, a very common medical condition, can turn to endovenous laser therapy for treatment.

Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) October 7, 2009 -- Varicose veins are a very common condition in the United States affecting approximately 15 percent of men and approximately 25 percent of women. More than just a cosmetic concern, varicose veins cause aching pain and discomfort and may lead to serious problems if not treated. Moreover, varicose veins may also indicate a higher risk of other circulatory system disorders. DoctorFinders.com is now helping to disseminate information regarding this procedure through its growing website.

Varicose veins occur when veins do not correctly return blood from the lower leg to the heart. Valves in the veins can fail to function properly allowing blood to leak through and flow down the leg in the wrong direction. The blood overfills and distends the superficial veins under the skin, resulting in the bulging seen in varicose veins. It also results in feelings of discomfort and heaviness. Endovenous laser therapy is a quick, effective procedure for varicose vein removal.

In contrast to the old method of vein stripping, laser vein therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that uses targeted laser energy to close the vein. During the procedure, a thin laser fiber is inserted into the vein. After the fiber is correctly placed, laser energy is applied as the physician slowly moves the laser through the length of the vein. Short pulses of laser energy heat the vein from within causing it to shrink and seal shut--eliminating the bulging of the vein at its source. After the treatment, the blood will be diverted to the other functional veins in the leg.

The outpatient procedure takes about 45 minutes with local anesthetic and usually provides immediate relief from symptoms. The procedure leaves no visible scarring, there is minimal postoperative pain, and the recovery period is brief. Endovenous laser vein treatment has a very high initial success rate with excellent long-term results.

As with any medical procedure, there are potential risks that should be discussed with a physician.
