varicose vein disease
Cardiovascular Surgeon Assist. Assoc. Dr. Mustafa Göğün Saygın talked about the risks that come with increasing temperatures in the summer months. Reputable; “Patients with varicose veins in particular should stay away from spas, saunas or thermal activities,” he warned.
Cardiovascular Surgeon Assist. Assoc. Dr. Mustafa Göğün Saygın warned of “heir”. “Hot environments cause varicose veins to expand further, slowing down the intravascular blood flow, and therefore causing clot formation.” Saygin said:
“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 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 pain in patients, without the need for anesthesia, with these technologies in 10-15 minutes.”
“AVOID STANDING IN THE SUN”
“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 the consumption of blood thinners, it is beneficial to use it regularly.
“Of course, before the treatment process begins, the patient needs to be analyzed in detail. After the analyzes are made, first of all, patients should be examined with color Doppler ultrasonography. While non-surgical techniques are applied to the vein enlargement or back leakage vein occlusion points, the vein occlusion procedure or varicose drying process can be applied, while the latest medical technique, PRP / GRP / Stem cell filling treatment 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 o’clock in the morning, when the intensity of the sun’s rays disappears.
