What is venous insufficiency?

If you have never heard of this disorder, the question, “what is venous insufficiency?” is a very good and natural one to ask. Venous insufficiency is a condition which leaves veins from functioning the way they should. This can manifest itself in the form of skin disease, bursting capillaries, discolored skin, painful and destructive ulcers on the skin, varicose veins which can result in vein aneurysms, inflammation and flaking skin, and extreme pain. At best these conditions are extremely uncomfortable and painful for the sufferer, and at worst they can be life-threatening. These factors make the various forms of venous disorders and diseases a priority in terms of medical treatment.

Some venous treatments in more detail

Some of the more popularly used venous treatments at this clinic include sclerotherapy and radiofrequency ablation. Sclerotherapy is the process of injecting a solution referred to as sclerosant into the affected vein. The sclerosant damages the vein’s walls chemically and this causes the vein to completely close. Blood will then seek healthier veins as conduits of travel throughout the body. The result is less pain and more comfort for the patient.

Radiofrequency ablation, also referred to as RFA, uses artificially generated (thermal) heat to damage a vein which does not function properly or optimally. The vein responds by closing itself off and shutting down in terms of function. Blood cells and plasma are then redirected to wider, healthier, and more properly functioning veins. RFA is effective and preferred because it produces desired results quickly, requires little to no invasive or potentially dangerous surgery, and closes off dysfunctional veins quickly. This results in quick relief for the patient. RFA is an effective and safer alternative to the previously used procedure of vein stripping to offer real relief to the sufferer.
