VNUS/Venefit Closure - An office procedure to treat venous reflux disease of the greater saphenouse vein, of the lower leg. Using ultrasound, a small catheter is positioned into the vein undergoing treatment. The catheter delivers heat to the vein wall by using the power of radio-frequency (RF) energy. The vein is welded closed, and blood is rerouted into other healthy veins of the leg.
Ambulatory Phlebectomy - An office procedure that may be required in order to remove large ropey varicose veins of the leg. Small incisions are made in the skin overlying the larger vein. Using small crochet hook-like instruments the vein is removed from the leg. The incisions are closed with a single stitch.
Sclerotherapy - An office procedure in which a medication is injected into a varicose vein. The medication destroys the lining of the vein. The vein becomes inflamed and blood flow stops within the vein. Over time the body takes care of the vein and it will disappear.
Compression stockings are designed for people who, through work or leisure, are on their feet a lot. These products can help prevent the tired, achy discomfort that is associated with extended periods of standing or sitting and lengthy work shifts.
Not all performance compression products are the same! When a person slips on a pair of graduated compression socks or sleeves, his or her legs will instantly feel supported and comfortable, but the real benefit happens at a deeper level. Graduated compression means that the compression is strongest at the ankle and gradually diminishes up the leg. The compression fibers act as a layer of muscle; gently squeezing stretched vein walls, fighting the force of gravity, and circulating blood back to the heart more efficiently.
When blood is properly circulated, it restores much-needed oxygen and nutrients to tired muscles that have been deprived during a long day of work. Graduated compression products help muscles regenerate more efficiently and help to remove any lactic acid that has built up. Informed people understand that graduated compression products help improve work comfort and performance.
When you shop for compression socks or sleeves, keep in mind that many brands don't offer the benefits of True Graduated Compression.
