MANAGEMENT OF PRIMARY VARIOCE VEINS OF THE LOWER LIMB BY ENDOVENOUS LASER ABLATION

Ahmed Oncy Abdo Abdo Elsherbiny


Abstract


Varicose veins affect up to 32 per cent of women and 40 per cent of men. The majority (60–70 per cent) are due to sapheno-femoral and great saphenous vein (GSV) incompetence. Minimally invasive endovenous techniques have been developed as alternatives to conventional surgery. The potential advantages of these include a reduction in postoperative morbidity and a shorter recovery period Since 2001, endovenous laser ablation procedures have been reported to be safe and effective methods of eliminating the proximal portion of the great saphenous vein (GSV), the small saphenous vein (SSV), and even tributary and perforator veins from the venous circulation, with faster recovery and better cosmetic results than traditional surgical ligation and stripping
