The Triangle Vein Clinic, a subsidiary of Triangle Surgical Associates, P.A.,
provides both cosmetic and therapeutic treatment of venous disease. The goal of the Triangle Vein Clinic - the area's original vein clinic - is to treat problems before patients develop secondary complications, such as blood clots, ulcers or post-phlebitic syndrome.
Most veins can be treated by sclerotherapy, a procedure which offers a non-surgical means of symptomatic and cosmetic relief. Before the advent of sclerotherapy, varicose veins were treated surgically with many small incisions. Now, only a small percentage of patients
will still need surgery to treat vein problems.
With sclerotherapy and a minor surgical intervention, Dr. Medina is able to eliminate painful and unsightly veins and improve leg appearance.
It is helpful for this discussion to define the terms of varicose and spider veins.
Varicose veins are usually greenish blue in color, larger,
and will often be raised (protuberant) above the skin. They are most commonly caused by faulty valves that allow blood to flow in a reverse direction.
Spider veins are generally red, purplish blue, and appear on the skin surface.
The Triangle Vein Clinic is dedicated to the expert diagnosis and treatment of these and other venous disorders including hemosiderosis, atrophie blanche, stasis dermatitis and lipodermatosclerosis.
At Triangle Vein Clinic, we are pleased to offer the VNUS ClosureŽ procedure, in addition to other treatment modalities for
comprehensive management of venous disease. The Closure procedure is a minimally
invasive treatment alternative for patients with a condition known as superficial
venous reflux, which often results in varicose veins and other painful symptoms.
Varicose veins are known for their distinctive blue color and bulging appearance
under the skin. They afflict an estimated 10%-20% of the adult population. In the
United States, that translates into 20-25 million people, the majority of whom are women.
