Case Number: RMVC-05-15-2007

Gender: Female      Age: 29

History: Both her mother and grandparents had varicose vein problems.

Occupation: Waitress and mother of three

Symptoms: Her waitress job required extended periods of time standing. She complained of adverse lower extremity symptoms of bulging veins, legs aching, and feeling tired and heavy at the end of the day.

Treatment: We performed a lower extremity venous ultrasound to help understand he source of her symptoms.

Our findings prompted recommendation for Endovenous Laser Treatment (EVLT) of both greater saphenous veins (GSV), and the right accessory vein (ASV). After the closure of these veins she required 2 sessions of Ultrasound Guided Foam Sclerotherapy to complete her treatment plan.

Care Recommendations: Following the successful procedures, we recommend the patient begin a daily regimen of walking, light moderate exercise, and general physical activity. We also suggested that she wear compression stockings when standing or sitting for extended periods of time to reduce the recurring problems.
