Venous Reflux Disease Treatment in Rockwall, TX

Understanding Venous Reflux Disease

Venous reflux disease is a progressive and debilitating illness affecting millions of Americans. It occurs when veins in the leg weaken and become enlarged, preventing their valves from closing. This ultimately disrupts the natural flow of blood through the body and often leads to leg pain.

Common risk factors of venous reflux disease include obesity, standing professions, having multiple pregnancies, and genetics. The disease is characterized by the development of varicose veins, swelling of the limbs, and skin ulcers. Common treatment options include vein stripping surgery, radiogrequency ablation, and (following a more conservative approach) compression stockings and elevation.

Symptoms of Venous Reflux Disease

Symptoms of venous reflux disease include:

  • Varicose veins
  • Fatigue
  • Swollen limbs
  • Skin ulcers
  • Pain in the affected areas

Treatment of Venous Reflux Disease

Venous reflux disease is treatable with vein stripping surgery, a highly invasive procedure which involves exposing the vein, performing ligation to stop the flow of blood, and fully removing the diseased vein from the leg. Another option for those suffering from venous reflux disease is radiogrequency ablation, which uses thermal energy to contract and close the vein.

Compression stockings and elevation are two more conservative approaches to treatment. Proper treatment and monitoring of venous reflux disease often result in profound symptom relief, with many patients living almost entirely free of pain.

Venous Reflux Disease - The Prognosis

While venous reflux disease itself is not commonly fatal, its symptoms often increase the risks of a wide variety of other diseases. Many of these diseases, such as thrombophlebitis, can be fatal. Without proper treatment, venous reflux disease can become debilitating. With diligent treatment and monitoring, however, many patients experience dramatic symptom relief.
