Endovenous Laser Ablation

The Benefits of Laser Ablation

An effective alternative to traditional surgical methods of treating varicose and spider veins, Endovenous Laser Ablation surgery uses laser to heat and eliminate the affected veins. The heat produces a steam bubble inside the vein, which destroys the vein walls. As the effected vein collapses, the body naturally absorbs the dead tissue.

The Steps Involved:

The affected vein is located using ultrasound imaging and marked with a pen.
A minimal incision is made.
A catheter is inserted through the incision and positioned inside the vein.
The laser fiber is inserted through the catheter to heat the vein.
After the heat seals the vein, the incision is covered with a bandage vein.
