Why is varicose veins dangerous? | Vascular Center AngioLife®

Varicose veins never stand still! Varicose veins are constantly progressing, and the manifestations of chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), every day, will increasingly bring you discomfort in everyday life. Every day, the fatigue and swelling of the legs will increase, the skin will become darker and denser (induction). With prolonged ignoring of varicose veins, trophic ulcers develop, which greatly degrade the quality of life of patients.

The most dangerous complication of varicose veins is - THROMBOFLEBITIS (TF - inflammation of the saphenous veins with the formation of blood clots). The main cause of thrombophlebitis is prolonged stagnation of blood in the legs, due to insolvency of venous valves. With the development of thrombophlebitis, there is a threat of a "thrombus" detachment and the development of pulmonary embolism (pulmonary embolism - when a blood clot "enters" the pulmonary artery), a fatal complication of TF. In order to prevent all possible complications of varicose veins that are difficult to treat, it is necessary to contact a vascular surgeon in time and undergo the endovasal laser coagulation procedure for varicose veins (EVLА), the main purpose of which is to normalize the venous outflow and prevent blood clots.
