Varicose vein surgery solves the problem of varicose veins in the legs which may present a significant health and aesthetic problems lasting for ages.
Varicose veins in lower extremities are the consequence of subcutaneous veins dilatation.
In healthy people, venous valves of superficial and deep veins enable the flow of venous blood to the heart.
In case of varicose veins, the valves are no longer able to perform their function so the blood from the deep veins returns to the superficial ones increasing their pressure which spreads down to the feet.
Vericose veins are unaesthetic,they can cause pain,night cramps,heaviness in the legs and they can cause even serious complications like open wounds on the legs,thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.

The best ways of preventing thrombosis and its consequences are: weight reduction,avoiding long standing,sitting and walking, less liquid intake ; the early surgical treatment is recommended too.
