Treatment of varicose disease by means of Mechano-chemical ablation («Flebogrif MOCA»)

The method of mechano-chemical ablation is an alternative to the method of radiofrequency ablation (RFA). This method has a variety of advantages, and the procedure is as efficient and safe for the patent, as that of RFA. Treatment with «Flebogrif MOCA» method does not require hospitalization. This technique presumes simultaneous use of two healing factors – mechanical damage to inner wall of the vein and administration of sclerogenic foam into the venous lumen. Under local anesthesia, through a perforation of skin, an umbrella-shaped catheter with five cutting elements is introduced into the vein. When being drawn out, the catheter’s cutting…

ASVAL (the Muller method)

ASVAL («Ambulatory Selective Varices Ablation under Local anaesthesia») or the Muller microphlebectomy is a simple and minimally invasive surgical technique that allows eliminating side blanches or small isolated varices (tributaries of saphenous veins trunks) through tiny incisions (2 or 3 mm long). This intervention is an outpatient procedure which is performed under local anaesthesia without cutaneous sutures (as a rule). Reasons for performing Muller ASVAL For cosmetic effect in case of small isolated loci of varices and on condition of absence of abnormalities in great and small saphenous veins trunks As a supplement to radiofrequency ablation (RFA) and CHIVA method,…

Treatment of varicose disease with CHIVA method

CHIVA (from French «Conservatrice et Hémodynamique de l’Insuffisance Veineuse en Ambulatoire») means «Conservative and hemodynamic outpatient treatment of venous insufficiency». This treatment method is grounded on the concept that varices themselves are not a disease, but the consequence of blood circulation disturbance which overcharges veins (usually one of saphenous veins). Therefore, a minimally invasive operation is performed only for the elimination of elevated pressure mechanism, without eliminating the vein itself which remains. The procedure involves pre-operation marking of the skin with a pen grounded on duplex sonography. This is performed in order to find sites for surgical intervention. Then, usually…

Crossectomy and limited incision stripping

Despite the diversity, high efficacy and priority of minimally invasive procedures (radiofrequency ablation, «VenaSeal»), surgeons still have to perform traditional operations. This is due to a range of reasons, when performing a minimally invasive procedure is impossible either technically of because of medical contraindications. ✔ technical reasons: – thrombosis of a varicose vein in the past medical history – excessive tortuosity of a varicose vein trunk – big varicose nodes along the vein trunk – injection drug use ✔ medical reasons: – acute thrombosis of a varicose vein trunk – allergy to local anaesthesia In these cases, a surgeon has to perform…

Treatment of venous stasis ulcers

Venous stasis ulcer is the terminal stage of lower extremity varicose vein disease. Treatment of this kind of ulcer is impossible without varicose veins elimination and recovery of venous blood circulation in a leg. Efficient treatment of trophic stasis ulcer includes a range of methods: 1) a technique of elimination of varices 2) compression therapy 3) drug therapy (local, systemic) Appropriate method of varices elimination is radiofrequency ablation (RFA) or such non-thermal technologies as «VenaSeal» or «Flobogrif MOCA» that do not require tumescence anaesthesia. Results of treating venous stasis ulcer with radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of varicose vein trunks   Compression…

Treatment of varicose disease by means of radiofrequency ablation (RFA)

Elaboration of the innovative hi-tech devices enabled to create the method of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) of varicose veins of lower extremities. It is called «VNUS Closure Fast», and is preferential in the USA and EU countries. Radiofrequency ablation is often confused with lased treatment of varicose. Despite some similarities of these methods, in RFA they use not laser but a special conductor, which is controlled by a radiofrequency generator. This method has a range of important benefits, and the procedure itself is the most efficient and safe for a patient. First of all, treatment of lower extremity varicose vein disease…
