Varicose Vein Treatments

Triangle Vascular Associates offers personal, individualized care for patients with vein disease utilizing a comprehensive, non-surgical approach to treat aesthetic and therapeutic problems. Vein conditions and their treatments are often more complex than they appear. Beyond obvious leg swelling or varicose veins, symptoms may include aching, cramping, heaviness, tired or restless legs, itching, tingling, and burning, as well as skin changes, scaly rashes, and slow or non-healing wounds.

What We Offer…


Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation

Endovenous radiofrequency ablation is a minimally invasive treatment utilizing thermal energy. It involves the insertion of a catheter (a thin, flexible tube) into a refluxing or backward-flowing vein to seal it shut using heat. Blood is re-routed into normal, healthy veins, alleviating reflux symptoms. Over time, the treated vein shrinks and is absorbed by the body. Compared to surgical options such as ligation and vein stripping, endovenous ablation results in less pain and has a quicker recovery time.


Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation

The ablation process can shrink veins over time.


Sclerotherapy

In sclerotherapy, a tiny needle is used to inject the veins with a medication that irritates the lining of the vein. Over a short time, the vein closes in response to the irritation and is reabsorbed. The blood from the closed vein is routed to properly working veins, restoring correct circulation and improving overall appearance.

A sclerotherapy needle injects medication to irritate vein linings.


Microphlebectomy

Microphlebectomy is a minimally invasive technique used to remove unsightly or painful bulging leg veins. It is the recommended treatment for large surface varicose veins. Removal of these veins with microphlebectomy often results in quicker healing, less pain, and a better cosmetic outcome than other treatments. Performed through tiny nicks in the skin, microphlebectomy is far less invasive than surgical stripping. Recovery is more rapid, and most patients do not need to interrupt regular activity after microphlebectomy.

Compression Therapy

Venous insufficiency, which can lead to the development of varicose veins, can also cause edema (swelling). Edema is caused by a back-up of blood and increased pressure in the veins, a problem that is localized to the legs, ankles, and feet; one leg may be more affected than the other (asymmetrical edema). Compression therapy provides a means to treat venous stasis, venous hypertension, and venous edema. Objectives of compression therapy are to reduce the swollen limb to minimum size, maintain that size, and allow the patient to participate in the care of his or her limb whenever possible. Treatments can include exercise, wrapping, massage, compression stockings, and a compression pump. Graduated compression therapy gives support to the legs and helps improve circulation back to the heart. Though this treatment may provide symptomatic relief to your leg pain, it does not prevent or cure varicose veins.


Compression Therapy

Compression stockings for vein treatment.


VenasealTM

VenasealTM is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat varicose veins .A catheter is inserted into the affected vein through a small nick. Using ultrasound guidance, a medical adhesive is then placed inside and the vein is compressed. The entire procedure only takes about 30-45 minutes. The adhesive is described as superglue- like, because it is able to permanently seal the vein and unlike traditional treatments it does not require injection of tumescent anesthesia nor heat from laser or radio frequency ablation. Only a small amount of the adhesive is used and permanently closes the treated vein. Once the procedure is complete, the patient is typically able to leave immediately and compression stockings are generally not needed. Most patients are able to get back to their daily routine right after the procedure.
