Spider Saphenous Blue Veins, Sclerotherapy - What it is, its Symptoms, Prevention Care and Cure and Treatment.

Varicose Veins, (also known as vericose veins, saphenous veins) are when the veins inside the legs, back of the calves, groins, and ankles are swollen, dilated and bulge out, twisted and swollen. They are mostly blue in color and sometimes blackish too. Heaviness of legs is experienced with swelling of ankles; cramps are experienced when body is moved suddenly.

The blood vessels in the legs have valves (leaflet valves) that help blood to return flow to the heart by preventing the return of blood lower down by gravity. These result if the veins are too tight to permit free flow of blood; at times this may be due to valves in the veins not functioning properly. More women than men suffer from it.

Long continuous standing durations are the primary cause. It is also related to genes heredity, body weight and menopause. It may also occur in old age. The varicose veins may be aggravated during pregnancy.

  1. Ulcers, usually around the ankles; swollen ankles and feet.
  2. If you feel like itching your legs and they are dry.
  3. If a vein is swollen and shows as blue/blackish or reddish in color and firm to feel.
  4. The legs may feel heavy after a long standing or sitting duration.
  5. Cramps occurring in the legs, more so at night.

  3. Sclerotherapy.
  4. Wearing elsatics stockings; the exerted pressure on the legs should not be more than 40mmHg. These help to eliminate the negative effects of deteriorated leaflet valves in the veins in the legs. Aspirin and Ibuprofen can be used along the the elastic stockings, consult a doctor for this.
 Latest non-invasive treatment methods are:-
  1. Radiofrequency ablation
  2. Endovenous laser treatment
  3. Sclerotherapy

Home Treatment Care.
  1. You should avoid long period standing or sitting still. Put your feet up frequently; this can be done by sitting or lying down with legs raised against the wall.

    Varicose veins are dilated, tortuous, elongated superficial veins that are usually seen in the legs. Varicose veins, also called varicosities, are seen most often in the legs, although they can be found in other parts of the body. Most often, they appearas lumpy, winding vessels just below the surface of the skin. There are threetypes of veins, superficial veins that are just beneath the surface of the skin, deep veins that are large blood vessels found deep inside muscles, and perforator veins that connect the superficial veins to the deep veins. The superficial veins are the blood vessels most often affected by varicose veins and are the veins seen by eye when the varicose condition has developed.
