Prior to a phlebectomy procedure, a vein specialist will thoroughly review the individual’s medical history and also use an ultrasound examination to determine the cause for venous insufficiency. If there are any abnormalities found in the saphenous vein, the large superficial vein of the leg, another procedure, such as endovenous radio frequency treatment, will be necessary to take care of this issue prior to proceeding with a phlebectomy. Veins must also be free of clots as these can create complications during the surgery.
If an individual is a candidate for phlebectomy, the following can be expected:
· Prior to starting, a local anesthesia will be administered to minimize pain felt throughout the procedure.
· The surgeon will then make tiny incisions, approximately 1 mm in diameter. These punctures are so insignificant that they are barely visible and will not require stitches.
· A phlebectomy hook will then be used to gently guide the varicose vein out through the incision hole.
The procedure typically takes a short time of no more than one hour. Most patients experience a quick recovery time with little to no pain and are able to resume their normal, everyday activities almost immediately. Following the procedure, however, it is required that the patient wear compression stocking for a period of two weeks in order to properly heal. Exercise, such as walking or biking, is also recommended to reduce pressure and increase blood flow.
