Varicose veins - diagnostics

Every third woman and every fourth man suffers from venous circulation disorders. From 0.5 to 1.5 % of Europeans suffer from chronic deficiency of venous circulation. There are about 13 % of patients who suffer from varicose veins, which later develop into more severe diseases, such as leg swelling (edema), lipodermatosclerosis, ulcers, pigmentation disorders, and thrombophlebitis. That is why if you experience some unpleasant leg circulatory disorder symptoms, contact your doctor because untreated varicose veins can result in complications, such as ulcers that cause inflammation of the veins and their loss.

Varicose veins symptoms:
- Pain in veins;
- Dilated veins;
- Leg swelling;
- Leg fatigue.

As a rule, the reason of occurrence of varicose veins is heredity. If parents have varicose veins, children will always inherit it. If one of the parents has varicose veins, the probability that a child will develop that disorder is up to 47 %. If both parents have varicose veins, the probability increases up to 89 %.

In order to properly choose the treatment method, a doctor has to examine blood vessels employing ultrasound – to perform dual scan.

The purpose of dual leg vein scan:
-To confirm or deny suspected deep vein thrombosis;
-To determine the state of deep vein valves, blood reflux and its level in deep veins;
-To confirm or deny the spread of thrombophlebitis of subcutaneous veins, its transition to deep veins;
- To detect the location of subcutaneous varicose veins.

This allows properly assessing the state of blood vessels and deciding what type of leg vein treatment should be given (whether or not laser treatment should be provided). Informativeness of the research is highly dependent on the doctor's experience and ultrasonography quality. If there is such a combination it is possible to speak about the early diagnosis of varicose veins. In this case the best result of the treatment can be achieved. Thus, if you feel at least one of the symptoms mentioned above, you’d better consult your physician who will give you the exact diagnosis.
