Varicose veins

  • Illustration einer kranken Vene

Healthy veins transport the oxygen-deficient blood back to the heart, so that it can be enriched with oxygen in the lungs. The oxygen-rich blood is then pumped back into the body via arteries.

Varicose veins are pathologically altered veins and prevent a normal return of the oxygen-poor blood to the heart. Usually, varicose veins are initially optically disturbing, complaints are only introduced late. The poorer blood flow causes swelling and skin rashes, as well as open wounds. In addition, the risk of venous infections and thromboses increases.

Varicose veins can be treated long-term by surgery. As there are many new procedures that allow a minimally invasive procedure, we would like to give you an overview of the different treatment methods.
New methods for varicose vein treatment:

- radio wave (Venenfit® (VNUS) Closure Fast)
- laser
- sclerotherapy
- catheter sclerotherapy (ClariVein®)
- Vena-livers (VenaSeal®)
- superheated steam

Since we have all new procedures available in practice, we can recommend the best and most useful therapy for the respective varicose veins.
