Second would be injection treatment under ultrasound guidance. Third would be surgery. We are talking about varicose veins, the typical, knotty, tortuous leg veins that would be recognised as such in the community. At times there may not be much to see on the surface. But ultrasound imaging can reveal dilated slightly deeper veins that drain the skin not performing ideally. In such situations there can be symptoms of aching, heaviness, night cramps, and swelling of the ankles by the end of the day. With more simple treatments that allow you to walk immediately after- wards and do not require a hospital stay many more people are seeking relief. Nearly every job can still be done while having the usual two treatment sessions. As experience with the laser approach has massively grown big international, multi-national vein conferences are coming up support- ing laser vein treatment as having the best outcomes with less chance of recurrences. In spite of what would seem self- evident that surgery would get rid of veins for good, experience with long term studies do not match this. What does the laser treatment involve? The first session is usually done with laser firing through a fibre-optic cable inside the vein, employing equipment that is in common to vascular stents and other procedures treating arte- rial problems, including cardiac. The second session is usually done with sclerotherapy – injection treatment – to tidy up remaining surface veins. Most insurance companies will cover the treatment, as long as the veins are significant. At Springdale Clinic we have been treating veins with laser for many years, focused on serving the local area. Dr Mark Denekamp does all the assessments and treatments. More people seek treatment before Christmas to get the benefit before summer heat. ADVERTORIAL 126879A CMYCMMYCYCMYK Dr Mark Denekamp M.B.
