Varicose veins is one of the diseases that should be paid attention to both in terms of appearance and health. Cardiovascular Surgeon Assist. Assoc. Dr. Mustafa Göğün Saygın talked about the risks that come with increasing temperatures in summer! In the continuation of the news, you can find out what you wonder about the treatment methods by being careful not to stay under the sun too long, which should be considered especially in the summer months.
Hot environments cause varicose veins to expand further, slowing down the intravascular blood flow, and therefore causing clot formation. In hot weather, there is a serious loss of water through breathing and skin. Water losses, especially in hot and humid areas, cause the blood to thicken and turn into clots more quickly.
Generally, during the summer months, diseases such as clotting in the brain, formation of clots in the heart vessels, and the development of clots in the leg varicose veins are much more common especially in people who are less active and in the elderly. All these disorders can lead to very serious consequences such as stroke, heart attack, clotting in the lungs and swelling of the leg with clots. However, in 2019, the treatment of these diseases with advanced medical technology is not as difficult and risky as before. With non-surgical techniques, it is now possible to treat varicose veins and vascular occlusion without incision, without causing pain in patients, without the need for anesthesia, in 10-15 minutes with these technologies.
Take care not to stay in the sun for a long time!
Global warming and the depletion of the ozone layer, the rise of carbon dioxide gas in the atmosphere, together with intense air pollution, cause skin cancer, wrinkles and premature skin aging, more importantly, cardiovascular and lung diseases. As Vascular Surgery moves towards 2020, it now offers solutions to previously incurable diseases as a result of the collaboration of robots, software, technologies and also humans. In summer, body water intake and the amount of water consumed should be at least 3 liters per day. However, if there are previously known health problems or if blood thinners are consumed, it is beneficial to use it regularly.
How Should Varicose Disease Be Treated? Is there any problem in swimming in the summer?
Of course, before starting the treatment process, the patient should be analyzed in detail. After the analyzes are made, first of all, patients should be examined by color Doppler ultrasonography. While non-surgical techniques are applied to the vein enlargement or back leakage vein occlusion points, vascular occlusion opening or varicose veins drying process can be applied, while PRP / GRP / Stem cell filling treatment, which is the latest medical technique, can be applied.
The purpose of this composition is to provide permanent support to the vessel walls and to reduce the vessel diameters to the normal level, thanks to the addition of a certain amount of hyaluronic acid. At the same time, there is no harm in swimming for these patients with heart and varicose veins. Especially cardiovascular patients should prefer the sea after 10 am or after 4 am, when the intensity of the sun rays disappear.
