Today, intravenous non-surgical methods are frequently used in the treatment of internal varicose veins. In these methods, the vein that causes internal varicose veins and leaks is detected by ultrasound, then this vein is entered with a needle under ultrasound guidance and the vein is closed. Thus, the leaking internal varicose vein is closed.
In this method, we use the calming anesthesia method, which we call sedation, together with local anesthesia. The process takes an average of 30 minutes. There are no incisions or stitches. The patient can stand up and walk immediately after treatment. He can easily return to his daily life the next day. There is no hospital stay. Therefore, it is a very comfortable method.
Laser (evla), radiofrequency (RF) and adhesive (Glue) are the treatment methods used in intravenous methods. Although the effectiveness of all these methods in the treatment of varicose veins is close to each other, I mostly use the laser (EVLA) treatment method.
We cannot use these intravenous methods for every patient. In some patients, both the leaking vein reaches very large diameters and there are large-scale varicose veins originating from this leaking vein. Unfortunately, the treatment of such patients is surgery. For this reason, I recommend you to treat your internal varicose veins without delay before they reach these diameters.
