Texas Vein Featured On MDNews.com
Dr. Bardwil of Texas Vein and Cosmetic Specialists was recently featured on MD News. He has more than 25 years of experience in treating patients who suffer vein disease. His article on MD News is definitely worth taking a look at if you are looking for an effective way to treat your veins. Following is short synopsis of the content he shared.
Varithena, a minimally invasive procedure for treating veins, was approved by the FDA in 2014. It was in August of 2014 that Dr. Bardwil carried out this form of vein treatment for the first time on two patients. The treatment itself involves using a chemical foam solution, and its effectiveness rate comes close to those associated with treating veins with thermal ablation.
One of the primary benefits gained through Varithena treatments is that there is no need for the administration of anesthesia. Additionally, the recovery symptoms accompanied with Varithena are usually far less minor when compared to other vein treatment methods, including reduced post-opt discomfort and less bruising.
During a Varithena procedure, a patient is positioned in a Trendelenburg position, meaning the feet are elevated slightly above the head. The foam solution is injected into the veins, and they are tracked through an ultrasound probe. The probe itself is extremely important during the procedure because it keeps the foam in the proximal saphenous vein instead of flowing into other veins during the time period that the solution is active. After the foam solution becomes inactive, it is then safe for it to flow into other veins.
Dr. Bardwil performs this procedure in his state-of-the-facility that he had built in 2009. He prefers treating his patients at his facility because he is not dependent on hospital bureaucracy, which gives him greater control of the treatment procedures that he carries out.
