We all want to enjoy healthy and active lives but with all the tasks of work and family we may forget about maintaining the health of our legs. Problems with the veins of the leg occur in both men and women of all ages but certain factors increase the risk of venous problems. Health conditions, lifestyle habits, heredity, injury, surgery, age, and pregnancy all play a role.
While you are unable to control heredity, age, surgery and changes during pregnancy, you can improve lifestyle factors through exercise, good posture, avoiding inactivity, choosing good fitting clothing and footwear.
The largest vein in the body is called the saphenous, running just under the skin from the groin all the way to the foot. Playing no particularly important role in the body's functioning, it's often the ROOT CAUSE of varicose problems. An incompetent valve in the saphenous vein will lead its branches to become varicose.
In such instances, Dr. Marzano employs the CLOSURE TECHNIQUE, using a catheter that emits an endoluminal radio frequency. This heats up the saphenous vein and effectively closes it down. For smaller veins, Dr. Marzano uses a micro-invasive technique: He makes a tiny puncture under the skin next to the vein and uses a micro hook to pull the vein out.
