➢ Varicose veins are veins that have become enlarged and twisted.
➢ Disorder of the lower limb veins is a common medical disorder, and usually occurs in about 15% of men and 35% of women.
➢ A common treatment in the past was the use of surgery to remove such affected veins.
➢ Nowadays, by using radiofrequency waves or laser, most varicose veins can be cured
➢ In this procedure a radiofrequency probe enters into the patient's veins using local anesthesia and such abnormal veins are treated by using local heating.
➢ The advantages of this procedure in comparison with open surgery includes: there is no need for general anesthesia, and therefore prevents the anesthetic complications, tiny incision and less complications, and short recovery period, so that the patient starts the movement on the day of treatment.
