Many years ago, the standard way that varicose veins were treated was by a surgical procedure called “vein stripping”, where the vein was completely removed from the leg. Today, Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) is the “Gold Standard” procedure offering superior results with limited side effects. This is usually the preferred treatment for veins that are wide and straight such as the Great Saphenous Veins and the Small Saphenous Veins. Once these larger veins are closed, it can relieve many of the patient’s uncomfortable symptoms and can even, as a result, remove some of the smaller spider veins. At the first, ultrasound based consultation Dr. Massoudi will let you know if EVLT is the best treatment for your veins. The Endovenous Ablation procedure takes about 15 to 30 minutes and is done in any of our offices, including Beverly Hills, Encino, Irvine, and San Diego. A long tube is inserted into

May-Thurner syndrome affects the two blood vessels that go to your legs. It could make you more likely to have a DVT (deep vein thrombosis) in your left leg. Your blood vessels carry blood to every part of your body. Your arteries move blood away from your heart, and your veins bring it back. Sometimes, arteries and veins cross over each other. Which causes problems if you have the May-Thurner syndrome. This condition involves your right iliac artery, which carries blood to your right leg, and the left iliac vein, which brings blood out of your left leg toward your heart. In the May-Thurner syndrome, when the right iliac artery squeezes crosses and squeezes the left iliac artery in the pelvis, pressure is caused as the blood cannot flow easily through the left iliac vein resulting in Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) in your left leg. Causes and Risk Factors You’re

Potential complications following Sclerotherapy: Infection: Minimized by strict sterile technique Bleeding: Minor bleeding may occur, but can be relieved with 5 minutes of moderate pressure. Skin Changes: Sometimes hard lumpiness can appear under the skin, which is often a result of the treated vein becoming scar tissue and going away. Trapping: Refers to blood pooling back into the vein after treatment, which can be uncomfortable and tender in those areas. This condition is fairly common and can be easily fixed by draining the leftover blood from the vein during a follow up visit. The best way to prevent trapped blood is to wear the prescription strength compression stockings as directed following the treatment. Skin Ulceration: A rare condition where the outside tissue reacts to the solution. Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT): Less than 1% chance risk. Dr. Massoudi takes precautionary measures to make sure this doesn’t happen. Risk for DVT may
