Endovenous Laser Ablation, also known as EVLA is considered to be the latest procedure that helps in the treatment of the major veins that had previously been treated by the way of stripping surgery. Using the ultrasound guidance, a laser fibre is inserted into the abnormal vein, this is done by the way of a small needle. This particular vein is then numbed by using any local anaesthetic after which the laser is activated as the removal of the fibre is done gradually. This process produces a reaction into the wall of the vein along with the treated section which results in the sclerosis and collapse of the particular vein wall, causing a minimal discomfort. The procedure is done by the Vascular Veins Specialist.
So far, the success stories of this method have reached a total of 95-98 percent causing fewer number of complications if compared to other surgeries. With the introduction of EVLA to the ultrasound guided sclerotherapy, it is presumed that the varicose vein surgery will be performed in lesser numbers in the coming days.
What does EVLA treat?
- Varicose Veins and Lipoedema
- Moderate Varicose Veins
- Vulval, Pelvic and Pregnancy-related Varicose Veins
- Severe Varicose Veins or Chronic Venous Disease
Is the procedure painful?
This procedure is not painful at all. A tumescent anaesthesia is given along the saphenous vein, making it less painful. You can get in touch with Dr. Ravul Jindal for more guidance on the subject.
Expectations from the procedure:
- Laser energy is delivered in order to seal the vein in fault.
- It is suggested to walk immediately post the procedure. Indulgence in the daily chores could be resumed right after the performance of surgery.
- Minor bruising and soreness might occur.
