Ambulatory Phlebectomy — “Special” Bulging Vein Treatment

Bulging veins.

The scourge of millions. The main reason people wear long pants or skirts even when it’s 102° outside. The reason some aren’t golfing, playing hide-and-seek with the grandkids, or dancing any more.

Bulging veins.

Can’t live with them. But you can live without them.

Where do bulging veins come from?

Most bulging veins are caused by venous reflux — the backward flow of blood that causes the deeper veins to become diseased and weaken and the surface veins to bulge. Most of these bulging veins can be taken care of with closure of the deep vein with a VNUS Closure procedure.

But what about those “special case” surface veins?

The ones that have been left in a bulging state for such a long period, not even a Closure is enough to make them disappear. Or the cases where there is little to no sign of vein disease, but the veins bulge anyway?

Long pants are not the answer. Ambulatory phlebectomy is.

The case of the special veins — solved.

Ambulatory phlebectomy is a minimally invasive procedure that surgically removes “special case” surface veins through tiny, imperceptible incisions made along the vein path, using a specialized phlebectomy hook. It is often performed adjunctly with a VNUS Closure procedure or on its own.

Now don’t let the words — surgical removal – scare you off. This procedure is nothing like vein stripping of vein treatment past – where the entire vein is physically removed from the leg. That is “old school” vein treatment. Ambulatory phlebectomy is today’s virtually painless answer to an age-old, yet very treatable problem – annoying, embarrassing, and, often times, painful bulging veins.
