Varicose veins are enlarged veins. According to the High Authority of Health (HAS), the disease of the veins affects over 70% of the adult population and 30% of cases will require medical or surgical treatment.

Headquarters of varicose veins

Most often varicose veins on the legs are located either inside the calf (varicose saphenous), behind and outside of the calf (varicose saphenous).

However, they may appear at the vulva (vulvar or perineal varices), anal (hemorrhoidal veins) or scrotum (varicocele). Varicose veins are also found on the hands, the feet (plantar veins), face or chest.

Whatever the location, varicose vein surgery will be for us the same goals: to be a minimally invasive surgery, aesthetic and under local anesthesia.

Causes of varicose veins

The role of the veins is to pump the blood of the feet back to the heart. When the veins no longer play their role, the blood goes down to the foot, dilates the veins and causes varicose veins.

Reflux is then formed from leakage points. The vanishing point is the opening of a communication between the deep veins and superficial veins. He directed the opening of a “tap” responsible for the dilation of blood veins.

This vanishing point, or “tap”, may sit in the groin (the saphenous butt) or at the perforating veins (veins that perforate the muscle from the deep veins to the superficial veins). These perforating veins may sit at various levels from the groin to the feet.

It is from this lack of continence valves “anti-reflux” that is constituted, then, the famous reflux – or incontinence – causing ladilatation veins and varicose veins so .
