Medial (inside) left leg varicose veins

A 31-year-old lovely lady visited our clinic with bulgy varicose veins over the medial aspect of her left leg. Her abnormal veins appeared when she was 20 years of age and gradually got worse. She had heaviness, cramps, and restless legs. Her symptoms got worse because of standing for long hours and hot weather impacted the condition, which are typical symptoms of varicose veins. The condition was improved by rest, elevating the leg, and wearing compression stockings. She was worried about the appearance and health effects of these abnormal veins and also her symptoms started affecting her lifestyle.

On thorough examination, we noticed varices on one side of her leg. Duplex Ultrasound (DU) examination was done during her initial visit with us to find out the source of these visible bulgy veins. The source of surface varices was a truncal vein called Great Saphenous Vein(GSV).

Our approach was to treat the source of surface varices by performing Endovenous Laser Ablation (ELVA) technique under local anesthesia which has a very promising success rate in treating big truncal veins (up to 95% effective if done properly by an experienced hand), it was performed as an outpatient, walk-in walk-out procedure.

The patient was advised to wear compression stockings for a week (only during the day) and she resumed work within a few days with minimal discomfort. Following EVLA, Ultrasound Guided Sclerotherapy (UGS) was performed to treat visible and non-visible abnormal branches of refluxing (abnormal) GSV. She tolerated UGS very well with minimum discomfort and no or little downtime.

The photo was taken after 12 weeks post three sessions of the treatment cycle. She was extremely satisfied with both aesthetic and medical outcomes as her symptoms disappeared.
