The clinical symptoms of venous insufficiency are not the cause but the consequence of various abnormalities of the venous system. A varicose vein being overloaded, may be dilated not only because of valvular incompetence but because of a venous block or arterio-venous fistulae and so the treatment has to be tailored according the hemodynamic features. It generally consists in one to four small incisions under local anaesthesia in order to disconnect the varicose veins from the abnormal flow due to valvular incompetence which dilates them.
This method leads to an improvement of the venous function in order to cure the symptoms of venous insufficiency as varicose veins, legs swelling, and ulcers. It can prevent varicose recurrence due to progressive enlargement of collateral veins which replace and overtake the destroyed veins and preserve the superficial venous capital for unpredictable but possible need for coronary or leg artery vital by-pass which increases with aging. CHIVA definitely falls into a research category and should be continued as such until sufficient evidence of its validity is generated.
The best available publication of CHIVA outcomes that meets current methodological standards is a study where a long term randomized trial CHIVA vs stripping restricted to Shunt I varicose configurations. That is the reason why only thirty to thirty-five percent of patients with varicose veins can be treated with CHIVA despite there being some bias in the selection of patients favoring CHIVA. There were recurrent varices in eighteen percent of cases treated by CHIVA vs thirty eight percent treated by Stripping which is so far the gold standard treatment of varicose veins.
According to medical knowledge, the advantage of western medicines is that they have clear healing efficacy and powerful lethal effect to infectious agent because they are usually chemical substances. Yet at the same time, as western medicines have certain side effect more or less, some present toxic side effect obviously and even can cause serious drug-induced diseases and drug resistance. It is thus clear that western medicines cause serious harm to the body at the time of dealing with animal diseases. The toxicity issue of western medicines is an increasing concern.
When treating varicose veins, application of plant medicine treats the problem on a cutaneous level utilizing the powerful forces of its monoterpenes. These micro particles provide the most rapid absorption; they enter cell membranes with incredible swiftness and have a direct antispasmodic and analgesic effect. Studies of medicinal plant extracts in plant medicine demonstrate they improve venous circulation; they penetrate into all dermal layers and provide fast action against varicose veins. They circulate through the skin and into the system.
Plant medicine for varicose veins not only has a direct astringent effect against varicose veins but provides total systemic support. Plant medicine can also be an all natural dietary supplement for the treatment of varicose veins and venous insufficiency. It can enhance venous circulation, strengthen immune parameters and safely act as a blood decongestant, thereby systemically unraveling twisted veins causing varicose veins. Plant medicine has shown beneficial to prevent time-consuming, painful, and expensive complications of varicose veins.
Natural drugs are not for destroying enemy but for mobilizing autologous tissue or self-recovery capability. Additionally, natural drugs have an effect to improve effect and decrease toxicity by compatibility of medicines and reduce side effect further. Natural drugs are emerging all over the world. The botanical extracts in plant medicine have been shown to improve microcirculation, capillary flow, and vascular tone, and to strengthen the connective tissue of the perivascular amorphous substrate.
