Recurrence of Varicose veins

Current treatments for varicose veins and spider veins have very high success rates. Although it is uncommon, these veins can return after treatment. One reason may be hidden areas in the body where there is a lot of pressure on the veins. This pressure may cause new spider veins. Doctors can diagnose this with ultrasound. Another cause may be new re-growth of vein branches. Doctors have found that tiny vein branches can grow through scar tissue to connect to both deep and superficial veins even after surgery.

About prognosis:

The 'prognosis' of Varicose veins usually refers to the likely outcome of Varicose veins. The prognosis of Varicose veins may include the duration of Varicose veins, chances of complications of Varicose veins, probable outcomes, prospects for recovery, recovery period for Varicose veins, survival rates, death rates, and other outcome possibilities in the overall prognosis of Varicose veins. Naturally, such forecast issues are by their nature unpredictable.
