Ambulatory Microphlebectomy for Varicose Veins

SVC-Ambulatory-MicrophlebectomyAmbulatory microphlebectomy is the traditional approach to removing large, superficial varicose veins through tiny incisions in the leg. The procedure requires no stitches or downtime afterward, making it a continued treatment of choice for bulging varicose veins in some patients.

 What is the Procedure Like?

Ambulatory microphlebectomy is performed in a doctor’s office. The physician makes tiny incisions along the skin where the vein is located. A small tool is used to grasp the affected vein and remove it from the leg completely. Blood is rerouted through healthy veins nearby. The procedure may be completed in one to two hours, depending on the number of veins to be removed. After treatment, patients are advised to wear compression stockings to reduce swelling and promote the healing process. Most patients may return to normal activities immediately after treatment, although strenuous exercise and heavy lifting is restricted for a number of days. Any discomfort experienced after the procedure can usually be satisfactorily managed with over-the-counter pain medication.

 Results of Ambulatory Microphlebectomy

Results of ambulatory microphlebectomy can be seen right away, although some patients may not see full results until mild bruising and swelling subside. Symptoms that accompanied varicose veins will also diminish right after treatment. Affected veins are permanently removed, although new varicose veins can develop in the area. Patients are instructed on how to minimize risks of varicose veins in the future. Ambulatory microphlebectomy is an effective treatment for large, bulging varicose veins that are easily visible on the surface of the skin.
