How are varicose veins diagnosed?


The first step is to question the patient, looking for any suggestive symptoms, followed by a clinical examination to diagnose visible varicose veins, or to detect varicose veins that may not be apparent. Immediately after the exploration, we carry out the indispensable Duplex ultrasound, which enables us to see precisely through the skin the veins identified during the clinical examination, as well as any unseen veins that may be diseased.
