Varicose veins treatment complications

Common Questions and Answers about Varicose veins treatment complications


Avatar m tn Hi Welcome to the forum! If the varicocele (varicose veins in scrotum) is asymptomatic and infertility is not an issue, no treatment is required. Mild discomfort can be managed by wearing an athletic supporter or snug-fitting underwear during strenuous activity or exercise. However if the person wants to be a father in future, it is better to get it operated. Varicoceles are known to cause infertility as they affect sperm production, especially if they are bilateral.
Avatar n tn This year in May I stopped taking the birth control pills and a couple months later I noticed on my legs bulging varicose veins. The onset seemed to be quite sudden. Could the fact that I stopped taking the birth control pills caused the sudden onset of the varicose veins?
Avatar f tn Hi! Laser ablation of varicose veins is a good technique with few complications and high success rates and low recurrence rates.

Avatar f tn this can also sometimes occur in severe cases of acute hepatitis and liver damage), blood can flow backwards from the portal circulation to the systemic circulation where they are connected. This can lead to varicose veins in the stomach and esophagus (gastric and esophageal varices) and rectum (hemorrhoids). Gastric and esophageal varices can rupture, bleed massively and even cause death.
Avatar m tn I would suggest you to go for a second opinion near a reputed General Surgeon. Varicose veins are most common in the superficial veins of the legs, which are subject to high pressure when standing. Besides cosmetic problems, varicose veins are often painful, especially when standing or walking. They often itch, and scratching them can cause ulcers. Serious complications are rare. Non-surgical treatments include sclerotherapy, elastic stockings, elevating the legs, and exercise.

Avatar n tn Hi, Thanks for writing in. A Varicocele is a network of tangled blood vessels (varicose veins) in the scrotum. It is a leading cause of male infertility and may also cause pain and atrophy (shrinkage) of the testicles. Was it embiolization or varicocelectomy that you got done? These days embolization is the most practiced procedure for the treatment of varicoceles, because unlike varicocele surgery, embolization requires no incision, stitches, or general anesthesia.
Avatar m tn My doctor described varicies as looking like varicose veins in your esophagus. So enlarged, distended, swollen looking veins. After I was banded my doctor initially checked me at 6 months for the first year but now I am checked annually Esophageal varicies don't have warning symptoms. I got this from the Mayo Clinic web site http://www.mayoclinic.
219373 tn?1274925034 I visited a vascular doctor to see if there might be a vein problem since I have varicose veins but not enlarged. The doctor said this appeared to be iron deposits and he suspects hemochroatosis. I have an appt in early March with a dermotologist.

I have some of the other symptoms suggested for this and I would like to know if a skin doctor is the one I need to see for a diagnosis.

1903798 tn?1333908888 I thought I had some vascular symptoms in the beginning. I had horrible varicose veins and some other traits.

Avatar m tn In explusive choroidal hemorrhage the middle layer of the back of the eye (Choroid) is filled with thin walled blood vessels. These expand rapidly like varicose veins and start to push out the contents (hense the iris prolapse, vitreous loss and the "black shadow" which is the blood (hematoma) in the eye. The veins can rupture filling the eye with blood. It can occur if a patient coughs, sneezes, jerks around or strains (valsalva maneuver).
Avatar m tn Swollen veins in the esophagus or stomach resemble the varicose veins that some people have in their legs. Because the veins in the esophagus are so close to the surface of the esophagus, swollen veins in this location can rupture and cause dangerous bleeding. Esophageal varices almost always occur in people who have cirrhosis of the liver. Cirrhosis causes scarring of the liver, which slows the flow of blood through the liver.

Avatar f tn Is the research you mention that of chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency and the work of Dr Franz Schelling and professor Zamboni et al? They are working on unusually swollen / varicose veins close to the spinal cord, and jugular vein in relation to how it affects the circulation and induces sporadic lethargy and later neurological complications.
Avatar m tn Low Sodium Diet (to avoid more fluid build-up) Diuretics (to help shed the excess fluid) When taking Diuretics---- Have blood tests done on a regular basis to monitor Kidney Function and Electrolytes Keep track of your weight--- Call the doctor if there's any weight gain of 5 pounds or more during a week Go to the Emergency Room for any signs of infection (fever, or pain in the abdomen, or vomiting, or trouble breathing, etc.) 2.

Avatar f tn I'd much rather chance joint pain than uterine cancer and thombosis!

I'm trying to do a lot of research of the drugs I can choose from.
Avatar dr m tn Surgical Treatment of Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea. Before we get to the “meat” of the matter, a brief review is in order. Obstructive sleep apnea is a condition where one stops breathing repeatedly through the night due to obstruction in the throat area.
