MY VARICOSE VEINS
Varicose vein is a common vascular problem in the Philippines. Currently, there are several venous procedures available in the country for the treatment of this problem including its complications (hyperpigmentation, venous stasis ulcers). Prior to any varicose vein intervention, it is highly recommended that patients be evaluated clinically which entails undergoing extensive history taking, thorough physical examination and possibly a venous duplex study. This set of evaluation will gauge the severity of the venous problem, thus appropriate venous treatment can be applied.
The "My Varicose Veins" website is a health service oriented site. The website is focused in providing an overview of the varicose vein management options available in the Philippines. The most common reasons for consultation among patients with varicose veins include:
cosmetic/aesthetic - unsightly ugly looking veins
dysfunction/ disability- activities are limited by ache, pain or swelling of the legs.
venous complications- venous stasis ulcer which are chronic leg ulcer that may be difficult to heal, hyperpigmentation and lipodermatosclerosis to name a few.
