Introduction: Radio waves and lasers can be used as heat sources during endovenous thermal ablation (EVTA) for saphenous vein insufficiency. A morphological comparison of veins that had been treated with EVTA was performed between those treated with an endovenous closure system (a radiofrequency [RF] system) and those treated with a Radial 2Ring fiber connected to a 1470-nm laser generator (2R). Methods: The experiment was conducted in a system that reproduces the physiological conditions found in the saphenous veins during EVTA...

Objective: Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) and radiofrequency ablation (RFA) are safe and effective treatments for varicose veins caused by saphenous reflux. Deep venous thrombosis (DVT) and endovenous heat-induced thrombosis (EHIT) are known complications of these procedures. The purpose of this article is to investigate the incidence of postoperative DVT and EHIT in patients undergoing EVLA and RFA. Methods: The patients were assessed by clinical examination and venous duplex ultrasonography before operation and at 24-72 hours, 1 month, and 1 year follow-up after operation...

BACKGROUND: Duplex ultrasound (DUS) is performed by the majority of physicians after endovenous ablation (EVA) of the great saphenous vein to screen for endovenous heat-induced thrombosis (EHIT) at the saphenofemoral junction extending into the femoral vein. Several factors should be considered in assessing the value and cost of routine DUS after EVA: the natural history of EHIT is poorly defined, the incidence appears low, and the majority are both asymptomatic and Kabnick type 2 (projecting only slightly into the femoral vein)...

BACKGROUND: Short (or small) saphenous vein (SSV) varices occur as a result of an incompetent sapheno-popliteal junction, where the SSV joins the popliteal vein, resulting in reflux in the SSV; they account for about 15% of varicose veins. Untreated varicose veins may sometimes lead to ulceration of the leg, which is difficult to manage. Traditionally, treatment was restricted to surgery or conservative management. Since the 1990s, however, a number of minimally invasive techniques have been developed; these do not normally require a general anaesthetic, are day-case procedures with a quicker return to normal activities and avoid the risk of wound infection which may occur following surgery...

Varicose veins of the lower extremity (VVLE) are a frequently encountered vascular disorder in the general population. The general view that VVLE are a non-serious disease with primarily aesthetic impact is a common misconception, as the disease can have a significant negative impact on generic and disease-specific quality of life. Further, VVLE may be associated with potentially threatening clinical conditions, such as chronic venous ulceration, venous thromboembolism and haemorrhage from ruptured varicose veins...

Modern management of varicose veins Chronic venous disease is a common medical condition and occurs in about one-third of the adult population. Reflux, and to a much lesser extent obstruction of the superficial and deep venous systems, generates venous hypertension. The goal of the treatment is to reduce venous hypertension in order to prevent complications, progression of venous disease and to improve patients' quality of life. Today we have a wide spectrum of different treatment options at our disposal. Management is based upon accurate clinical diagnosis and duplex imaging...

In the past 15 years, the minimally invasive endovenous treatments of varicose veins have been widely accepted. The efficacy of the different endovenous methods and the minimal post operative side effects are meanwhile well documented in a large number of evidence based publications. The recent NICE Guidelines (2013) considering the varicose vein treatment recommend in case of an insufficiency of saphenous veins first the endovenous thermal ablation with radiofrequency or laser, then the ultrasound guided sclerotherapy and as the third line the classic surgical treatment with stripping and high ligation...

BACKGROUND: Endovenous thermal ablation has revolutionised varicose vein treatment. New non-thermal techniques such as mechanical occlusion chemically assisted endovenous ablation (MOCA) allow treatment of entire trunks with single anaesthetic injections. Previous non-randomised work has shown reduced pain post-operatively with MOCA. This study presents a multi-centre randomised controlled trial assessing the difference in pain during truncal ablation using MOCA and radiofrequency endovenous ablation (RFA) with six months' follow-up...
