What Are Varicode Veins?

Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted or swollen veins, that usually appear on the legs or feet, just beneath the surface of the skin, and are commonly caused due defects in the valves within the veins that allow blood to flow in the wrong direction, often appearing in blue or dark purple.

Varicose veins can occur in any part of the body but most commonly affect the legs.

Legs are generally affected by varicose veins because of the pressure that is exerted on the legs due to prolonged sitting and standing hours or due to obesity. Every year, more than 23 percent of adults are estimated to be affected by varicose veins.

How Does It Form?

Varicose vein is a medical condition that takes place when veins in any particular part of the body are under increased pressure and blood is pushed back towards the heart. .

The increased pressure and force in blood flow results in the damage or weakening of the valves that lie within the veins, causing the blood to pool and even flow backward which leads the veins to bulge out and become visible through the skin.

Diagnosis Test

Doppler Test

This test uses ultrasound to determine the blood flow in the veins located in the arms, legs, and large arteries. This is a simple non-invasive test and generally, it is well-tolerated by patients.

During the test, a water-soluble gel is placed on a handheld device, which is known as a transducer. Once this device is gently passed over the skin above the blood vessels, it helps in directing sound waves to the artery or the veins that are being tested.

Ulatrasound Scan

This scan helps in carrying out a detailed examination of the deep veins, particularly if the patient has a history of deep vein thrombosis.

A venous ultrasound helps in identifying the damaged valves and abnormal blood in the body.

Test Of Varicose Veins Severity

  • Grade I :Spider veins
  • Grade II : Reticular veins
  • Grade III : Venous nodes or varicose veins
  • Grade IV : Chronic venous insufficiency
  • Grade V : Trophic ulcers or varicose eczema
  • In this stage, small, thin damaged veins appear on the surface of the skin, usually in the legs and face. Usually, they do not cause any harm and are painless.

Risks & Complications

Allergic reaction to the anesthesia:

Before the surgical procedure, a person might be put under the influence of anesthesia in order to ease the pain and discomfort during the surgery, which might cause problems like difficulty in breathing and other complications during the procedure, depending upon how the body reacts to the anesthesia.

Nerve injury near the site of treatment:

Although rare, there is a slight possibility of a nerve injury during the surgery that can be caused by stretching, exerting pressure, or cutting the nerve.

Blood clots :

Deep vein thrombosis is a condition that complicates any surgery from time to time. Even though the complication is rare, patients suffering from a severe condition of varicose veins are at a greater risk of being exposed to blood clots.

Heavy bleeding :

If certain medications like aspirins and blood thinners are not avoided prior to a week before the surgery, it may lead to heavy bleeding during the surgical procedure.

The surgical hand plays an important role :

You might consider the expertise of the surgeon as an important factor before going for the surgery as identifying the damaged or problematic vein plays an important role in the success rate of varicose vein surgery. Prevention of varicose veins Prevention Although there are no proven ways to prevent the formation of varicose veins, there are a number of measures that one can take up in order to prevent an existing condition of varicose veins from worsening which includes avoiding prolonged sitting or standing, exercising regularly, maintaining a healthy lifestyle by having a proper diet that is rich in fiber, losing weight, not wearing tight-fitted clothes or high heels for a long period of time, wearing compression stockings, and keeping the legs elevated.

Treatment Options & Cost


This non-surgical procedure involves the injecting of a solution directly into the veins. This medical procedure helps in eliminating varicose and spider veins by making them collapse and forcing the blood to reroute to flow in healthier veins. Once the veins are destroyed, they disappear over time. This process is typically used in treating spider veins and helps in improving the appearance of the skin that is affected. Whereas in case of larger veins, a procedure called foam sclerotherapy is used, where the sclerosant solution is turned into a foam before injecting it into the veins as foam can cover a larger surface area, compared to liquid.

Radiofrequency Ablation:

Radiofrequency ablation (RFA), also known as fulguration, is a medical procedure that involves heating a part of the pain-transmitting nerve with a radiofrequency needle to create a heat lesion. This resulting lesion prevents the nerve from sending pain signals to the brain. Generally, a patient can go home on the same day after undergoing this procedure.
