Varicose vein disease is common, and may only result in mild cosmetic type changes in the legs. However, this condition can progress to cause symptoms of irritation where mild aching may occur. Severe varicose vein disease may cause marked ankle or leg swelling, aching pain, chronic skin changes and ulceration. Some patients may suffer from “night cramps” in their legs associated with vein disease. Varicose vein therapy used to be surgical, with inpatient vein stripping under general anesthesia as the mainstay. The advent of minimally invasive catheter based laser ablation and ultrasound-guided sclerotherapy (injection of a medicine to shrink or destroy varicose and spider veins) has opened a new world of non-surgical therapy for varicose and spider veins.
