What is Vein Ablation?
Vein ablation, also called endovenous ablation, is a medical procedure that helps to treat varicose veins. Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged due to pressure. This procedure uses an ultrasound to locate any problematic veins and then radiofrequency to close them. Radiofrequency cauterizes the varicose veins by using heat to damage the veins so they can collapse and eventually disappear. The heat is applied inside the affected vein
The Benefits of Vein Ablation
The venous ablation procedure can provide patients suffering from varicose veins with many benefits. This effective treatment gets rid of varicose veins, but it can also relieve the painful symptoms they cause, including aching, itching, rashes, and swelling. Additionally, this procedure is safe, minimally invasive, and rarely, if ever, leaves scars. The additional benefits of vein ablation include:
- Improved overall general health
- Improved self-confidence
- Significant cosmetic improvement
- More energy throughout the day
- Immediate symptom relief
- Relief from heaviness,
- Relief from cramps
- Relief from swelling
The Types of Vein Ablation
When it comes to vein ablation, there are two different types. If you’re seeking to have your varicose veins removed and vein ablation has been determined as the best course of removal for you, there is radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and endovenous laser ablation to consider. Radiofrequency ablation is performed under general anesthesia. This procedure targets the vein with high-frequency waves that heat the vein. A catheter is then inserted into the vein and transmits the radiofrequency. Endovenous laser ablation is similar to radiofrequency ablation, except laser energy is utilized rather than radio waves. Both types of procedures are considered safe.
Possible Risks & Common Side Effects of Vein Ablation
Any vein ablation procedure, just like any medical procedure, comes with its own possible risks and common side effects. Vein ablation side effects will be discussed with you during your initial consultation. Generally, vein ablation is an immensely safe procedure. Common side effects after vein ablation can include bruising, pain, and irritation of the nerves surrounding the treated vein. Developing a blood clot in the veins in the treated leg is not common but can occur. Your overseeing physician will take special precautions to decrease the likelihood of these risks.
