Recurrent varicose veins

Varicose veins can occur after any type of treatment. This is, in part, because the underlying disease – a weakness of connective tissues – cannot be cured.

The treatment of recurrent varicosities does not differ much from that of primary varicosities. However, repeat operations are more difficult to carry out and imply an increased risk of causing damage to surrounding tissues.

Therefore, an increasing number of specialists tend to treat recurrent varicose veins with minimally invasive treatment options, in particular foam sclerotherapy and thermal ablation.
