Curious about vein treatments? Visit the Vascular & Interventional Centre, a veins centre, Singapore, today!
In the human body, veins transport deoxygenated blood from parts of the body back to the heart. In some cases, it is important that we seek veins treatment in Singapore, to prevent further complications which may or may not endanger our lives. However, before we dive into treatment, what are some common vein diseases? This includes vein diseases such as:
It is essential that you understand some of the common vein treatments offered for these conditions, as before you head down to seek veins treatment in Singapore, know what’s in store for you. Common vein treatments that are offered at the Vascular & Interventional Centre include:
A catheter is inserted into a blood vessel at the groin through an incision in the groin area. Using fluoroscopy (a type of X-ray imaging), the catheter is then guided to the arteries leading to vascular malformations. Microspheres (small plastic particles) are injected through the catheter into the vascular malformation, filling up these blood vessels such that the blood flow through the vessel is blocked. 
Sclerosant is injected into the blood vessel, damaging the walls of the blood vessel, causing it to be irritated. As a result, the blood vessel walls collapse, thus sticking together and causing blood to clot as well.  .
This procedure combines the use of both mechanical devices and medicine to dissolve the clots. Through a catheter, medicine is injected into the deep vein containing the clot. Through the injection of the medicine, the blood clot(s) are dissolved, restoring blood flow through the deep vein. Thereafter, your doctor may decide to use a stent to keep the widened blood vessel open.
In radio frequency ablation, radio waves are used to heat up and damage the vein walls. As such, this causes scars on the walls of the varicose veins, and it is because of the scar tissues that the varicose veins seal off, thus causing blood to be directed to other healthy veins.
Firstly, through the use of a special catheter that has a wire rotating at high speed, the inner walls of the varicose vein are damaged. Then, at the same time, a sclerosant, a chemical that seals off veins, is also injected into the vein. This is a relatively painless procedure that requires less local anaesthesia injections as compared to other procedures. Additionally, there is no risk of damaging the nearby blood vessels in this procedure as well, hence, it is relatively safe.
CLaCs combine both transdermal laser and injection sclerotherapy using a chemical sclerosant (a chemical that seals off veins), while keeping the skin at a cool temperature of about -20℃. This process leaves minimal scarring and pigmentation, and is relatively painless.
If you are looking for treatment for any of the above conditions, such as varicose veins, it is best to speak to a doctor, such as a varicose vein doctor, Singapore, first to see which is the best treatment option for your condition.
