How is the treatment of varicose veins veins on foot laser?

Varicose disease of the legs – it is not just a cosmetic problem, but a serious pathology, which follows the dangerous health consequences. Treatment of varicose veins laser treatment – one of the most advanced, less traumatic and reliable ways to cope with the disease at an early stage. This will allow you to achieve the beautiful aesthetic effect, varies minimal risk of complications and a short rehabilitation period.


Traditional drug therapy combined with physical therapy and wearing correctional laundry too gives good results, but does not eliminate the underlying cause of the disease. Radically solve the problem of the diseased vessels required surgical intervention. The classic operation for removal (phlebectomy) is difficult to tolerated by patients, because they are very traumatic and is accompanied by a high risk of infectious complications. This method is gradually becoming a thing of the past. Replaced it come minimally invasive procedures (sclerotherapy, laser), which give a great result and allow you to quickly and painlessly get rid of varicose veins.

Laser treatment: the essence of the procedure

Varicose veins laser correction is considered to be the most reliable and effective method of treatment. On the basis of this method is the use of thermal effect for coagulation of blood vessels. Simply put, a light pipe, embedded into the affected vessel during operation emits a stream of energy. This radiation is absorbed to a large extent, absorbed mainly by hemoglobin in the blood with the release of heat, which warms the blood cells and the vessel wall. As a result, the blood extruded from the container, and the vienna "signati". The blood flow is completely terminated, and the venous outflow from the surrounding tissues has already done through other, healthy veins.

Wearing compression underwear after the treatment of varicose veins laser refers to the effect of, creating additional pressure on the container, and not let restore it to the bloodstream in damaged vienna. Container with time is covered with connective tissue. Compliance with preventive measures of varicose veins will not allow to develop the defeat of the other veins, so that the disease will be cured forever.

The advantage of the method is in its small trauma, no loss of blood and large cuts. And once a gateway for infection, and risk of damage to surrounding tissues and possible complications reduced to a minimum.

Treatment of varicose diseases of the laser – littletraumatickéI procedure does not require special preparation and is performed under local anesthesia. The operation is carried out only in a special medical facility, the progress of the operation is carried out ultrasonic inspection in real-time. It is the surgeon using ULTRASONOGRAPHY monitors the promotion of led in vienna. Before surgery the patient must undergo the necessary examination, during which the detail of the location of the affected venous vessel and is designed by the optimal method of laser coagulation.

When is the appointed operations: indications


The reason to perform the operation on the treatment of varicose veins laser serves as a varicose subcutaneous veins (large and small). The Laser is applied in that case, if the mouth of these veins are extended for not more than 1 cm thick, themselves containers have a smooth course without sudden bends and their offshoots healthy or slightly extended. Then there is the laser is effective only in the initial stage of varicose veins, while a small range of severity of the process and only in the application of the subcutaneous veins. In the event that the disease is running, and the affected blood vessel to expand to more than 1 cm, there is a great probability that in the future vienna once again "evolve" and the treatment proves to be ineffective.

The medical laser has a therapeutic effect on a very small surface area – it allows you to avoid its negative impact on the surrounding tissue. So the use of laser therapy to large areas damaged blood vessels, and also in the deep veins, it is inefficient. In these cases, one must use other methods of surgical treatment, more than appropriate for a given situation (for example, the classic phlebectomy).


In addition to those cases, when the laser will be ineffective, there are situations where its use can damage the health of the patient. Contraindications for laser treatment is quite a lot, is conditionally can be divided into absolute and relative:

Absolute contraindications

When the absolute contraindications to carry out therapeutic manipulation categorically cannot be. The list of such conditions are:

  • tendency to thrombosis and thrombophlebitis;
  • of chronic disorders . — and lymph circulation in the legs;
  • serious damage to the vein wall.

In these diseases the laser can damage the walls of blood vessels or trigger massive thrombosis of the veins. Also contraindications include the inability to actively move around and wear compression stockings. Without these activities in the postoperative period of laser treatments can completely lose their effectiveness, and so trigger the inflammation in the vessel.

Relative contraindications

Relative contraindications are those in which the operation is to postpone the time. It's inflammatory processes on the skin on the feet, especially around the site of a future injection site, aggravation of chronic diseases. In this case, it is necessary to first treat the associated pathology, and only then perform the operation. If they do not do so, then it is a big risk of complications in the postoperative period – how from the side runs a vein, so on the side of the disorder, which has become a contraindication to laser treatment.

The operation need not be carried out during pregnancy and lactation, because in this period, immunity is weakened, and the load on the lower limbs above, than is usual. For the same reason, it is difficult to perform laser treatment of varicose veins in overweight people – they are worse to tolerate anesthesia, when it is due to a large load on the legs, are possible complications in the postoperative period.

A description of the procedure of treatment of varicose veins veins on foot laser

Despite the high cost of treatment of varicose veins veins on foot laser, this procedure is gaining more and more popularity because of its simplicity and efficiency. To determine the availability of indications for surgery, pre-do a duplex ultrasound examination. It helps to see the structure of the veins, the degree of their damage and violation of blood flow.

In the day of the procedure, a special preparation of the patient is not required. If necessary, you can take a tranquilizer. Before the operation is performed more one-sided angiography, all manipulations occur under the control of ULTRASOUND. A small range of operation and allows you to avoid general anesthesia and its associated complications – laser treatment is performed under local anesthesia, which ease the injection site.

The essence of the operation for the treatment of varicose veins laser lies in the fact that through a small puncture in the skin of the lower limbs on the damaged vessel is introduced a light pipe, connected to the laser device. Then with the help of laser radiation occurs coagulation of the damaged vessels, followed by a light pipe is extracted, the injection site is treated by local antiseptic, and on it builds, is a sterile bandage. The surgery itself takes about 15 -30 minutes (the processing of one foot).

After the forced lying on the operating table to move in a vertical position is recommended to slowly and gradually – first sit down and then stand up. It will allow you to avoid vascular collapse at the sudden change in body position. No limit is not. Through some time after the procedure the patient can go home.

Because of the need to wear compression underwear surgery trying to assign to a cold period, the patient did not feel discomfort in prolonged wear stockings.

It is a natural mechanism, the use of which will help to avoid a relapse of varicose disease after surgery.

Go to work, if it is not associated with great physical stress or long standing on the feet, it is possible to almost immediately, and even in day to day operations.

In rare cases, possible thrombosis of the veins, including deep, which leads to a significant deterioration in the condition of the patient. It is necessary to immediately seek medical help if:

  • in the first two days of pain in the course of the vein and the injection site is not to weaken or worsen;
  • on the skin around the injection site, signs of inflammation – redness and increased local temperature, formation of suppurating foci;
  • when walking arise pains in the muscles of the legs, swelling, feeling of heaviness;
  • appeared pathological pigmentation on the skin of the feet;
  • raised temperature;
  • any other unpleasant sensations in the legs – a violation of sensitivity, paraesthesia.
