Key Messages

The current guideline and the standard treatment for varicose veins is EndoVenous Technique. Endo-venous treatment meaning treat within the diseased veins without cutting open the skin or the veins.

Laser Varicose Veins is a type of minimally invasive endo-venous treatment, commonly practiced in many developed countries as a 𝐠𝐨𝐥𝐝 𝐬𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐝𝐚𝐫𝐝 treatment in treating varicose veins. It is performed under ultrasound image guidance, which can precisely locate the diseased veins and seal the veins with laser. Multiple veins can also be treated in one single treatment.

Laser Varicose Veins Treatment is now available in Malaysia.

What is Varicose Veins?

Varicose veins are the veins that can be seen on the leg such as bulges of veins, lumpy veins. Essentially it is caused by increased of the pressure in the vein itself. The function of the vein is to bring the blood up from the leg back to the heart against gravity. 

So, most of the time we are standing, gravity will pull the blood down to the legs. The blood is flowing backwards, which subsequently leads to varicose veins that you can see, that is the bulges of the veins, that you can see in your legs.

Signs you may have varicose veins

The common sign and symptom of varicose veins is aches or pain in the legs, this is usually worse throughout the day, usually evening after one tends to stand or walk for a long time. The other symptoms are actually legs swellings. When this gets progressively worse, the skin becomes dry, becomes itchy and patients tend to scratch a lot. 

Occasionally they can also have sensation like burning sensation in the legs, and ultimately ulcers will develop in the leg. These ulcers are very difficult to heal unless the veins are treated.

Who are at risk of varicose veins?

♦️ Pregnant lady, especially after given many child births

♦️ Occupations that require prolonged standing or sitting

♦️ Hereditary

♦️ Overweight

Any one can develop varicose veins, irrespective of age.

 

What if varicose veins left untreated?

If these varicose veins are left untreated, they can have complications. Most commonly the complications are swelling of the legs, skin changes that will involve the skin becomes dark and thicken, and ultimately these will be breakdown become ulcers. There are also other complications such as phlebitis, bleeding and deep vein thrombosis. Phlebitis mean that veins inside develop blood clots. Patient will come in complaining of redness of the skin, painful and it is very tender when you touch it. A lot of times, these are misdiagnosed as infection of the skin call cellulitis, and antibiotics are given which is not the right treatment. 

Apart from that, if the blood clots become very extensive and that will cause deep vein thrombosis, which is a dangerous condition. If the blood clot is broken off and travels to the lung and it can be a fatal complication.

Lastly, it can bleed. A lot of patients they present with bleeding as an emergency. It is best to have varicose vein treated at the early stage in order to prevent all these complication from happening.

Treatment option available for varicose veins

Conventional Open Veins Stripping Surgery

Surgery itself is a very old technique. Vascular surgeons do not perform this procedures as routine over the past 10-15 years.

Chemical Technique

Chemical ablation is good but not as good as endovenous techniques.

Glue

Glue is still very new and we do not know what is the long term outcome yet.

Endovenous Technique (Laser Varicose Veins Treatment)

Endovenous technique is the current guideline and the standard treatment. Endovenous technique is a minimally invasive technique using just needles, wires and catheters. There is no cut in the legs to perform this technique.

To perform endovenous technique, we use laser. The laser that is being use is the latest laser 1470nm frequency and has been proven to have the best result. The procedure which normally takes about an hour or less. During the procedure, we inject local anesthetic for the patient, and the following the local anesthetic injections, we use an ultrasound scan to identify the vein. On the ultrasound scan, we insert the needle into the vein under the ultrasound scan guidance. So, it is a very accurate technique. Nothing can go wrong as far as I am concern if it is being performed by a qualified Vascular Surgeon.

Once the needle is put into the vein, we switch on the laser machine, and the catheter is slowly being pulled out per segment by segment to treat the vein. Essentially the laser produces heat at the end of the tip of the fiber, the heat itself will shut down the vein that is causing the problem.

What to expect after Laser Varicose Veins Treatment?

Patients will then have bandage put on the leg for about 48 hours. Endovenous Laser Treatment has many advantages. Firstly, it can be performed under Local Anaesthesia (LA), which mean essentially patients do not need to stay in the hospital. Endovenous Laser Treatment is also minimally invasive which means there is no cut to the legs, so there is no pain, very minimal bruises if it were be compared to surgery.

           No Cut.

No Pain.

Very Minimal Bruises.

Most importantly, patients can mobile straight away.
