Endovenous Laser Therapy is for milde cases patients which are bothered by the unaesthetic appearance of varicose veins. Varicose veins pose a problem to approximatically 15-30% of the adult population, increasing with age. The laser energy will result in permanent thermal damage to the vein wall. With the laser fibre in correct position of the saphenofemoral junction you are ready to deliver the first laser pulse. After insertion of a laser fibre the treatment can begin. Following needle positioning an introducer is effortlessly inserted into the vein by Seldinger technique. Severe cases are associated with pain, inflammation and in rare cases open wounds. The laser treatment is performed along the entire length of the varicose vein and will result in a complete and permanent occlusion of the vein.
