The goal of treating varicose veins is to stop the backward blood flow. The treatment of this disease by blocking or removing affected veins implies directing blood to nearby, healthy veins. This is achieved by the most modern treatment that has been used in Serbia since early 2018. It is medical glue that is classified as a minimally invasive method of treatments. After this procedure, the patient immediately returns to regular activities and does not need to wear elastic stockings. Doctor Dario Jocić is the first vascular surgeon who used this method in Serbia in March 2018.
The medical glue has endured a test of time because it has been used for decades in various fields of medicine and is completely safe for the patient. The intervention involves the use of a small amount of a specially formulated medical glue that is applied to the affected vein. In this way the glue blocks the affected vein and blood is redirected to nearby healthy veins. This unique approach eliminates the risk of nerve injury during an intervention, which distinguishes it from all other treatments of varicose veins.
Extensive clinical studies have shown success in 98.9% of cases. Adverse effects are very rare and involve the same symptoms as other treatments of this disease to a far lesser extent. This approach has been used in Europe for the past several years and doctor Jocić is the first and only expert in the region to treat patients with this minimally invasive method.
An ultrasound examination of the leg is used to assess the affected area of the vein and to plan the procedure. The doctor monitors the course of the whole procedure by ultrasound. The intervention is performed in local anaesthesia in the dose needed to remove a minor mole. After anaesthesia is administered, the doctor places a catheter at the specified place. The medical glue is later applied through the catheter. During the placement of the catheter patients may feel mild pressure, while the intervention is painless. After the treatment, a plaster is put on the place of the injection. The intervention lasts about 30 minutes.
After the intervention, the patient rises and walks. The symptoms of varicose veins may disappear very soon after the intervention, i.e. after the closing of the affected vein. Minor bruises may appear after the intervention. The advantage of the medical glue treatment is that the patient immediately returns to regular activities.
All patients who have problems with varicose veins and capillaries in different phases of the disease. It is also recommended to patients who have venous ulcers that hardly ever or almost never heal. After the application of medical glue, even this group can relatively fast return to the activities they could not do during the period of venous insufficiency.
It is also suitable for elderly patients and those with advanced venous disease.
The centre was founded by doctor Dario Jocić, a vascular surgeon, after many years of his professional practice. His wish was to offer patients in this part of Europe all globally available, modern and minimally invasive treatment methods for varicose veins.
