Spider veins source investigation package:
When it comes to the management of spider veins, a venous duplex scan can offer several specific benefits:
Diagnosis & Assessment Underlying causes
Identification of Source: Spider veins may appear in isolation but can also be secondary to a more significant venous problem, like varicose veins or venous insufficiency. A duplex scan can identify if there is an underlying issue that needs to be addressed along with the spider veins.
Mapping: The scan allows for detailed mapping of the venous system, which can help guide treatment options like sclerotherapy or laser treatment.
Severity: Sometimes, the spider veins might look worse or less severe than they are. A venous duplex scan can assess the true extent of the problem.
Spider Veins Treatment Planning
Personalised Approach: Based on the venous map and the condition identified, treatment can be customised to the patient’s specific needs, typically sclerotherapy or laser ablation, etc.
Efficiency: Knowing the underlying issue can help in treating the condition more effectively, possibly reducing the number of sessions or intensity of treatments needed.
Safety: Identifying potential deep vein issues can prevent complications that could arise if only the spider veins were treated.
Preventing the Recurrence:
Knowing any underlying venous insufficiency cause for spider veins can determine if the spider veins were secondary to venous insufficiency, which in turn can hugely prevent post-treatment recurrence of spider veins.
This would be particularly helpful in deciding whether additional treatments or modifications to the current treatment regimen are necessary.
