Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) - an innovative technique for removing varicose veins of the lower extremities using the energy of thermal radiation from the laser. EVLA is performed without surgical incisions, under local anesthesia with continuous ultrasound monitoring. Due to this, the probability of damage to other veins is close to zero. Postoperative discomfort and hematomas are less pronounced than in classical phlebectomy, patients return to work faster. Laser coagulation of veins is successfully used in leading specialized clinics and medical centers in Europe and the United States.
The procedure is indicated for pathological changes (nodules, dilation) of the veins of the lower extremities. Causes of varicose veins - congenital weakness of the venous wall, valve insufficiency. More information about the causes of venous insufficiency and methods of treatment will be provided by a specialist, and you can make an appointment with him on our website Dobrobut.com.
Why do you need endovasal laser coagulation? For timely treatment of varicose veins. Often the procedure is performed in combination with miniphlebectomy or sclerotherapy. This approach provides the optimal result and long-term effect of treatment.
Advantages of EVLA:
Indications for EVLA:
The main contraindications for EVLA:
No special preparation for the procedure of laser coagulation of the veins of the lower extremities is required. First, the doctor marks the affected veins: under the control of ultrasound, the puncture site and areas where it is necessary to extend the exposure to laser radiation.
How is endovasal laser coagulation:
After the obliteration procedure, the "sealed" vein is removed from the circulatory system. But do not worry: deep and superficial veins are interconnected, so blood flow is redirected. When "sealing" the affected veins, blood circulation is normalized. After laser coagulation, the improvement is observed almost immediately.
The EVLA procedure lasts about 30-60 minutes. After that, the patient is free and can go home. Immediately after surgery, doctors recommend a half-hour walk. After 5-6 days, compression stockings can be removed at night. Compression stockings should be worn during the day for two months after EVLA. If you experience pain, pulling along the vein, you can take a pill of a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug.
