Varicose veins are enlarged cavity abnormal veins (venous) pressure caused by backflow of blood that flows in it. Backflow of blood pressure caused by two things. First, the blockage / suppression that prevents backflow of blood (eg in pregnant mothers womb magnitude hit the main vein in the abdomen), and the second is when the return flow of blood to the heart more than the normal blood vessel blockage-free / emphasis (eg in the legs that move more weight than normal people).
In both circumstances, the magnitude of the rate of blood flow causes the cavity is not only a dilated blood vessels, but also a winding and branching.
Varicose veins occur along the leg until the thigh to the calf and the foot. Veins (vein) in the leg area located on the surface, just below the skin layer, so often imagined as a line of faint bluish color. In circumstances where the leg veins have varicose veins, picture bluish veins become more apparent, including a picture of the winding or branching.
Problems caused by varicose leg is not just a cosmetic skin problem that does not look good leg as a result picture bluish blood vessels. More serious if the area where the varicose leg injuries occur and infected so that healing becomes more difficult and komplikatif.
Prevention of varicose veins:
1. Limit the use of “high heels”
Avoiding excessive toehold in the limbs, among others, by regulating body weight and avoiding the use of high heel shoes that are too long and too often. Extra body weight to make the working limbs become heavier than normal, the muscles of the leg work to become more enterprising. Impact, current backflow of blood from the legs to the heart becomes larger and the pressure becomes increasingly higher.
The use of high heel shoes increase the distance that must be achieved through the blood stream and make some leg muscles work harder so that the compensation current backflow of blood pressure becomes increasingly higher.
2 Rest your legs
Regulate the activity of leg and adjust the position of limbs at rest by taking the leg rest in between intervals of activity. Stick out your leg straight and wedge with one or two pads while sitting or lying in order to break the flow of the reverse flow of blood to flow smoothly in normal pressure. In some circumstances, give a warm water bath on the foot and lower leg can help smooth the flow of blood behind.
3. Always clean and moist
Keep your skin clean and moisture to avoid possible leg injury and infection.
Handling of varicose veins:
1. Use “stocking”
Wear special elastic garment in the legs that is able to provide additional pressure on the veins (venous) equally from the feet up to the groin. This particular form of garment elastic stockings usually like or tight pants.
2. Injection sclerotherapy substances
This was done on the blood vessels behind (vein) that appears winding and branched cavity to collapse the veins (venous).
Surgical stripping of this release the veins (vein) along the legs of the surrounding structures, and then discarded.
4. The combination of these three types of treatment
Handling of varicose veins that have occurred by plastic surgeon and gives fairly good results. However, somehow prevent it’s easier and cheaper than cure.
