Varicose veins are tortuous, dilated veins often associated with incompetent valves.
Deep vein thrombosis occurs with the lack of movement of blood, resulting in a clot (thrombus) within a deep vein.
Venous insufficiency occurs when incompetent valves allow blood leakage or reflux, leading to elevated ambulatory venous pressure and capillary damage with extravasation of red blood cells and serum.
In the past, treatment of varicose veins was performed through a highly invasive and complex vein stripping (complete removal of the vein) procedure.
VenaSeal is a new procedure just recently approved by the FDA. Although yet to be covered by most insurance carriers, MVC can work with patients on payment option plans.
What is sclerotherapy? This method of vein treatment is for varicose and small accessory veins with venous reflux.
