Varicose veins definite treatment by RF
Our specialists treated varicose veins definitively through a less invasive method by RF in more than 1000 patients.
When patients look at their feet they find some prominent vessels and there is skin discoloration, In later stages of the disease there will be edema and even ulcerations in ankle which indicate the advanced stage of varicose disease.
The disease is usually hereditary but is also very common in people who do their jobs mostly in upright position and while they are standing.
Earlier methods of varicose veins treatement mostly were extraction of defective veins through surgery which was associated to many complications including pain, bleeding, skin changes, anesthesia complications, and long recovery period.
Here is RF instruments entry point into the patient's vein. Before operation the patient's vein was completely prominent in this area but as you can see we could shrink the vein in situ by RF instead of extraction of vein by surgery.
The patient is a 35-year-old man who underwent endovascular treatment of varicose veins in lower extremities about a month ago and he is here now for follow up examinations. As you can see color dupler examination shows that varicose veins have been completely occluded and there is no circulation in the veins. Defective areas with skin discoloration are treated.

The study included 1020 patients in Imam Khomeini Hospital, Tehran, and Golestan Hospital of Iran's Navy has been conducted with success rate of 95% and published in creditable international journals.
