The primary symptoms of varicose veins are highly visible, misshapen veins, usually on your legs.
When treating varicose veins, laser therapy remains the best option, a new study says.
Researchers in the study examined 798 participants who had varicose veins and were treated at 11 vascular surgery centers in the United Kingdom, between November 2008 and October 2012. The participants underwent one of three types of treatments: closing off the veins with a laser, injecting a drug “foam” into the vein or surgically removing the vein.
After six months, the researchers compared the outcomes, looking at how well the treatments worked and at their complication rates, as well as how the participants rated the change in their quality of life since their treatments.
