The Baltic Vein Clinic has a team of highly qualified phlebologists and vascular surgeons who regularly participate in advanced pieces of training, congresses, scientific studies, and organize international sample surgeries.
For diagnosis of vein disorders the doctors use:
- Duplex ultrasound - a device that determines the presence and severity of damages in deep and superficial veins.
- Computer Tomography Phlebography - is a diagnostic technique that allows examining
the whole system of deep veins. This method is indicated in the case of unclear etiology of thrombosis of deep veins or inherited vein disease.
The Baltic Vein Clinic provides the following types of treatments to its patients:
1. Sclerotherapy - is a treatment that involves injecting sclerosant fluid or foam to ensure the occlusion of the varicose vein.
The fluid injections are indicated to close small venous capillaries (spider veins).
The foam sclerotherapy is suitable to close the damaged veins that have a larger diameter. The advantage of the sclerotherapy procedure is that it allows avoiding surgical intervention.
2. Vein surgery - is a procedure used to remove the deteriorated veins. Although the procedure is well-known and effective, it is very traumatic, that is why nowadays the doctors use such techniques as
- VNUS radiofrequency vein ablation - is based on vein closure using heat produced by a radiofrequency catheter introduced into the vein from a needle prick.
- Endovenous laser therapy (EVLT)
- Endovenous steam micro impulse venous ablation (Cerma SVS)
The advantage of these procedures is that they avoid massive incisions and can be performed under local anesthesia.
3. Treatment of trophic ulcers
Trophic ulcers are a type of wound that appears in the area of the calves. They may be a complication of untreated varicose veins, atherosclerotic arterial narrowing, or neuropathic cause.
A vascular surgeon or phlebologist consultation is compulsory to decide the treatment that will be suitable for your condition.
4. Treatment of hemorrhoids
Hemorrhoids are enlarged blood vessels that appear in the lower part of the rectum.
The diagnosis of hemorrhoids is established by a doctor, called a proctologist, who uses a proctoscope.
The disease is divided into four stages, depending on the severity of the clinical manifestations.
For the first and second stages, HC4 Baltic Vein Clinic doctors use sclerotherapy, cryotherapy, and applications of resin rings for dilated hemorrhoidal nodules.
For the third or fourth stage of hemorrhoids, the treatment usually involves a surgical approach using the THD method or Longo method.
