What is a Varithena
Varithena is a polidocanol injectable foam used to treat varicose
veins and venous reflux disease. In 2013, this treatment was approved by the
FDA. Today, Varithena successfully treats varicose veins and the associated
symptoms. These symptoms often include itching, swelling, throbbing, heaviness,
How does the Process
The process of Varithena is simple and can be done in less than an
hour. Here are the three steps:
Before the Process:
The procedure starts by numbing the area so that patients feel
minimal to no pain. There is no need for anesthesia.
During the Process:
A physician uses a catheter or a small needle to insert the foam
in an area that is around the varicose veins. Under ultrasound guidance, the
foam fills the vein, due to which the deceased vein collapses, and blood
redirects to the healthy veins. The procedure repeats in the same way depending
on the number of veins that need treatment. Once this process is completed, you
get a bandage on the affected area.
After the Process:
Your physician will give you a follow-up date and advise you not
to take off the bandage for at least 48 hours. Additionally, the bandage should
stay dry. In case it becomes wet, be sure to get it changed instantly.
Common Concerns before the
If you are planning to get this treatment, multiple questions may
arise in your mind. Do not worry. We have listed down these common queries
along with their answers to help you. Here they are:
1- Is it safe to travel after the Varithena treatment?
In most cases, short-distance traveling is not an issue. However,
if you want to travel for a long distance where leg movement will also be
restricted, you need to consult the doctor.
2- What is the recovery time of the procedure?
Usually, patients can resume routine activities after a few hours
of treatment or from the next day, depending upon the condition.
3- Is the process painful?
Commonly, patients do not feel unbearable pain during the procedure. Since the area is numb, there can only be a slight feel of a needle pinching.
4- Will the process give immediate relief?
You can notice immediate relief from the pain associated with
varicose veins once the procedure is done. Also, there will be a visible
difference in the appearance of veins on your legs.
