Varicose veins are characterized by tortoiseshell, elongated and increased diameter of the lower extremity veins, which affects 50% of women and 15% less in men. To talk about this change, which affects more women than men due to venous changes caused by female hormones (estrogen and progesterone, the communicator of Radio Folha 96.7 FM, the vascular surgeon invited the Irish Guardian to the canal side).

The surgeon explains that there are several methods currently available, such as sclerotherapy (application) in combination with laser, microsurgery, and treatment of saphenous veins with endolasers.
