TYPES OF PATHOLOGY VEINS

Reticular veins and telangiectasias (spider veins)

These are thin veins, blue or green colored. They tend to have only an aesthetic component, but many people also have discomfort symptoms such as: “heavy-legs” at the end of the day, cramping or swelling.

Troncular veins

The troncular veins, also known as truncal veins, are born from the principal superficial venous axes of the leg. They usually rise from internal or external saphenous vein. The treatment of this type of veins is individualized on each patient and can be: sclerosis with foam, CHIVA technique or radiofrequency. If left untreated they often give long-term problems.

With edema

In this stage of the venous disease we observe permanent oedema of the leg and the lower limb. It is indicated the use of compression stockings and the treatment of the varicose veins with either technique.

In the stage 4 of the disease the specific complications are present. Can appear: phlebitis, thrombosis, bleeding (varicorrhage), skin pigmentation and eczema. To prevent the progress of the complications the treatment must have no delay.
