What causes vein problems?
A common cause of vein problems is venous insufficiency. This is a widespread condition, and around 50% of Americans have some form of venous insufficiency. Examples of problems associated with venous insufficiency include varicose veins, spider veins, and reticular veins.
Vein problems are more likely to affect you as you grow older because the valves in your blood vessels get weaker over the years. Other factors, like lifestyle, weight, fitness, and pregnancy, can all cause vein problems.
What vein care treatments are there?
There are a variety of vein care treatments available at HeartCare Associates of Connecticut’s Vein Center. These include:
Endovenous catheter ablation (Venefit™)
Venefit is the latest innovation treating venous insufficiency with radiofrequency.
Radiofrequency ablation (RA)
RA uses radio waves to heat and block varicose veins.
This surgery uses tiny incisions through which your provider extracts problem varicose veins.
Sclerotherapy is a well-established intervention for treating varicose veins and similar vein problems.
This is a method of blocking and destroying varicose veins using medical glue rather than heat.
Compression stockings can help your circulation and support healing after vein treatments or as a conservative therapy.
