You may wonder if the bulging veins in your legs can instantly pop, and the answer to that question is yes, but the likelihood of that happening is slim. In very severe cases of vein disease, your legs may swell up due to the excessive pressure that is being placed on them, causing them to pop.
When left untreated, some cases of varicose veins will burst. There have been cases of ruptured varicose veins causing someone to bleed to death, but the chances of this happening are unlikely. However, bursted veins are still very concerning.
Varicose veins appear due to the pooling of blood in your legs, which affects your blood circulation. This extra blood weakens your legs due to the stress it places on them, ultimately causing the bulging veins on your legs known as varicose veins. If these veins are not treated, they will increase in size causing the venous walls to thin as a result of the high pressure. This makes it easy for them to be ruptured, leading to blood loss. A rupture can be caused by a small bump to the affected vein.
How to prevent a ruptured varicose vein?
The only way to prevent a rupture in your varicose veins is by getting them treated early. Upon detecting varicose veins in your legs it is important to go in for a consultation with a specialist in order to properly diagnose and treat your condition before it becomes too late. At Canada Vein Clinics we offer numerous treatment options. At the time of the consultation the specialist will meet with you and create a personalized treatment plan to effectively treat your concerns. The treatment options include:
- Endovenous Laser Therapy
What to do if your varicose vein bursts?
If your varicose vein ruptures it is important to immediately apply pressure to the area, as there will most likely be a large amount of blood. Applying pressure to the affected area will help to minimize blood loss. As uncontrolled blood loss has the potential to be fatal, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as possible after the rupture occurs.
