Treatment for Varicose Veins: Procedures - Medical Animation
MEDICAL ANIMATION TRANSCRIPT:
Varicose veins are enlarged, twisted veins. They usually occur in your legs. Varicose veins don't usually cause problems, but if they're painful or you don't like the way they look, you may want to seek treatment. Treatment may also help prevent blood clots from forming in the event you have a future surgical procedure such as a total hip replacement. Some patients may have discolored skin, throbbing, aching or cramping, itching, recurrent skin infections, bleeding or ulcers. Most cases of varicose veins can be treated with the following procedures. Sclerotherapy, surface treatments using laser or micro electric devices, phlebectomy and endovenous ablation. These procedures can be done in your doctor's office, require no large cuts and have a short recovery period. You may need more than one treatment over several weeks to see results. Sclerotherapy works best on smaller veins and spider veins. In this procedure, a chemical is injected into the vein. The chemical irritates and scars the vein. This causes the vein to close off and fade away. Surface laser and micro electric treatments are used to treat smaller veins near the skin surface. In these procedures, the heat from small bursts of laser light, or electric current, make the vein fade away. A phlebectomy is also used to treat smaller veins near the skin surface. During a phlebectomy, a tiny cut is made in the skin over the vein. Then, the vein is pulled out and removed. Endovenous ablation is a procedure to treat deeper varicose veins. In this procedure, a flexible tube called a catheter is inserted through a small cut into the vein. The catheter is used to send heat from either laser light or radio waves into the vein. The heat closes off the vein and causes it to fade away. On rare occasions, your healthcare provider may advise a more invasive procedure such as vein stripping. It's usually performed in a hospital and may require more recovery time. Usually two or three cuts are made in the skin over the damaged vein. Then the vein is tied off and pulled out through the lower cut. As with any procedure, there are risks as well as benefits. Talk to your healthcare provider to see what type of varicose vein treatment may work best for you.

What attorneys say about MLA and The Doe Report:
"[I] have come to rely upon the Doe Report and your great staff of illustrators for all my medical malpractice cases. … Please know that I enthusiastically recommend you to all my colleagues.

Frank Rothermel
Bernhardt & Rothermel
"This past year, your company prepared three medical illustrations for our cases; two in which we received six figure awards; one in which we received a substantial seven figure award. I believe in large part, the amounts obtained were due to the vivid illustrations of my clients' injuries and the impact on the finder of fact."

"Our firm was able to settle our case at an all day mediation yesterday and I am confident that the detail and overall appearance of the medical illustrations significantly contributed to the settlement. When we require medical illustrations in the future, I will be sure to contact [MLA]."
