For any individual case of varicose veins, the exact cause is usually unknown. We do know that lifestyle factors that expose the veins to excessive amounts of pressure, such as prolonged sitting or standing, weight gain, or pregnancy increase your likelihood of developing varicose veins. Similarly, factors that are thought to compromise the integrity of the veins, such as smoking and aging also increase your risk.
Varicose Vein Treatment in Visalia, CA
Vein closure involves the use of minimally invasive medical devices to access the vein and treat it from the inside. The goal of the vein closure procedure is to shut down the diseased vein, thereby allowing blood to flow through nearby healthy veins. There are multiple approaches to vein closure that use different means of closing down the vein.
A catheter device is inserted into the diseased vein through a single puncture in the leg.
Therapy is applied to the inside of the vein. Treatment may be thermal or chemical.
The vein is closed down, allowing blood to flow through nearby healthy veins.

Varicose Vein Treatment in Visalia, CA
If you’re trying to get your varicose veins under control, you really have three unique treatment options:
- Compression Stockings – medical-grade stockings that apply graduated pressure to the leg and assist with blood flow
- Vein Closure Treatment – minimally invasive medical devices are used to close down varicose veins (described above)
- Vein Stripping Surgery – a surgical procedure in which the varicose vein is pulled out of the leg via incisions made at the two ends of the vein
Vein closure is more effective than compression stockings. Graduated compression stockings are usually prescribed as a conservative, first-line therapy for varicose veins. While stockings can help relieve symptoms of varicose veins, they do not address the underlying vein problems that cause vein symptoms. Many patients have trouble staying compliant with their stocking prescription, which can render them ineffective. In comparison, vein closure attacks the source of venous insufficiency by treating the veins directly.
Vein closure is safer than vein stripping surgery. Unlike surgery, vein closure does not require any major incisions or surgical cutting. For this reason, vein closure is safer than surgery. This was conclusively demonstrated in the EVOLVeS clinical study in 2003, which showed that individuals treated with thermal ablation had significantly lower complication rates and faster recovery time than individuals treated with vein stripping, with the same level of treatment efficacy. Since 2003, newer types of vein closure treatment have demonstrated about the same level of safety.
