Minimally invasive treatment for chronic venous insufficiency (CVI)
Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) is a progressive medical condition that worsens over time and affects the veins and vessels in the leg that carry oxygen-poor blood back toward the heart. Varicose veins, which are enlarged veins in the leg that appear like twisted, bulging cords, can progress to CVI if left untreated.
There are a number of factors that contribute to varicose veins and CVI, including pregnancy and heredity. As varicose veins progress to become CVI, other painful symptoms like leg swelling, skin damage and ulcers may occur.
Today, there are a number of minimally invasive treatment options for CVI and varicose veins. These are performed under local anaesthesia with no cuts and no need for inpatient hospital stay. Learn more about CVI and minimally invasive treatments options available in our upcoming CME session with StarMed’s visiting consultant and vascular surgeon Dr Peter Robless.
