ISTANBUL (TR) - Varicose veins, which one out of every two people between the ages of 20 and 70 in the society is estimated to catch this disease, is known as a vascular disease whose incidence increases with age. Pointing out that varicose veins, which are more common in women than men, are also common in men due to the effect of working from home during the pandemic, Op. Dr. Birol Tunalı said, “This vascular disease, which we see more frequently in women due to reasons such as pregnancy and hormone drug use, has started to be seen at almost the same rates in men due to the inactivity caused by working from home. A similar scenario is also valid for young people who continue their education remotely. We started to encounter more varicose veins as early as 20-25 years old.”

The main problem is structural defect in the wall of the vein.

Saying that factors such as weight gain, pregnancy, sedentary life, heart and respiratory failure, and genetic predisposition can cause varicose veins, Op. Dr. Birol Tunalı said, “Whatever the triggering factor is, there is basically a structural defect in the wall of the vein. With the enlargement that occurs as a result of this disorder, the valve in the vessel does not work properly and the blood flows backwards. While the blood has difficulty returning to the heart due to leakage, the pressure in the vein increases and this expands the vessels. In people with clogged deep veins, the superficial veins, which carry about 10% of the blood, have to take over the entire blood circulation, and because they expand, they form varicose veins. The most common symptoms of varicose veins can be listed as leg pain that occurs mostly in the evening, capillary veins becoming visible, skin redness, itching, dryness and bleeding under the skin.”

No need to go under the knife for the treatment of varicose veins

Op. Dr. Tunalı also touched upon the methods used in the treatment of varicose veins as Inday Clinic: “The oldest and traditional method in the treatment of varicose veins is the removal of varicose veins by surgical intervention. However, this is a method that is both laborious and takes a long time to heal. However, it is now possible to get rid of varicose veins without going under the knife. As Inday Clinic, we apply various treatment methods in this area. The first of these is sclerotherapy, which can be explained as correcting varicose veins by foaming into the vein. This method, which has been applied for many years, is mostly preferred for varicose veins thicker than 1 millimeter. During the procedure, very thin needles are used to enter the vein called sclerosis. a substance is injected. The injected substance makes the vessel walls stick together. Since blood does not pass through the adherent vein, it becomes invisible after a while and is absorbed and destroyed by the body over time. The treatment session lasts for about 10-15 minutes. Afterwards, the person is treated for 3 days a is fitted with a compression stocking for him to wear constantly. This method can destroy an average of 80% of varicose veins. In another method, laser, an apparatus called a catheter is inserted into the vein. With the help of the beam coming out of the laser device, the varicose area is completely burned. Similarly, in the radio frequency treatment method, radio waves are sent into the varicose veins using a catheter. Varicose veins are burned with the heat generated during the emergence of these waves. In all these methods, local anesthesia is applied and the patient can return to his daily life on the same day.”
