Glue Therapy for Varicose Vein Varicose veins and spider veins are dilated and tortuous veins seen on the lower limbs. About 40% of males and 50% of females are affected by this disease. Veins carry the impure (deoxygenated) blood to the heart for oxygenation. Veins have to work against gravity to do so. the muscle Contractions in the lower legs along with functioning (competent) valves helps proper return or impure blood upwards to the heart. If these valves are weak or damaged, impure blood gets stagnated in the lower limb, causing the veins to stretch or twist because of high pressure. This Condition causes varicose vein and spider veins.

Foam sclerotherapy : Diseased vein is blocked using sclerosing agent (STD/ Polidocanol) injected into the vein under ultrasound guidance. Complications phlebitis, pigmentation, high recurrence rate.

Endovenous thermal ablation (Laser / Radio-frequency):Under spinal/local anaesthesia diseased vein is ablated (blocked) using heat energy generated from laser or radio-frequency probe passed through a catheter. Advantages no need of hospital stay, can be done under local anesthesia, no wound scar, faster recovery. Complications skin burn, hematoma, risk of saphenous nerve injury.

While going through the facebook feeds,I watched a video of Dr. Shareef about "Varicose vein Treatment". I took my mother and went there. I would like to thank Dr. Shereef and the whole assisting staffs of general surgery Dept for treating my mother. While doing the procedure, Dr. shareef clearly explains through the screens about what they are doing and the condition of the patient. We really had a good experience. Thank you Aster MIMS KOttakkal for the care and love.
