Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT): The ins and outs

EVLT is the latest alternative to the traditional vein stripping procedure - which requires hospitalisation, general anaesthetic and healing time from incisions and stripping. EVLT is an in-office procedure, performed under local anesthesia, that takes about an hour, is very safe and virtually painless. Better yet, there is little downtime.

Procedure: A catheter is placed inside the vein using local anaesthetic with ultrasound guidance. Inside the catheter, a laser fibre is threaded which, when activated, can close the vein from the inside. After the treatment, patients need to wear compression stocking for two weeks. From there on, patients can resume their normaly daily activities.

- Up to 90 percent success rate with no scarring
- Lower rick of complications
- Fast recovery with great patient satisfaction
