Apollo Spectra to conduct free check-up in city

Pune: Many people with varicose veins live their entire lives without any major symptoms. The problem occurs when varicose veins start limiting their lifestyle, said Dr Shoaib Padaria, a varicose vein specialist at Apollo Spectra Hospitals in Pune.

“Varicose veins can progress from being a mere cosmetic nuisance, which is skin discolouration and prominent veins, to severe problems such as leg pain, heaviness in the legs and swelling around the ankles while standing,” said Dr Padaria. He further emphasised that if it is not treated in time, non-healing ulcers may develop.

“At times, the enlarged veins can rupture and cause sudden bleeding. A clot may form within the dilated vein, which can travel towards the heart and cause a blockage of the lung’s main artery. This is called pulmonary embolism. Varicose veins can also cause Deep Vein Thrombosis.”
