OBJECTIVE: Endovenous thermal ablation in the form of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) or endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) has quickly ascended to a prime position in the treatment of venous insufficiency. While there is good data examining the rates of thrombotic complications, there is a relative paucity of data examining the recanalization rates after endovenous thermal ablation (ETA). METHODS: Data analysis was performed for 1475 thermal ablations in 485 patients from 2012-2015 as a retrospective chart review...

BACKGROUND: In mid-2007, endovenous ablation (EVA) of the great saphenous vein was introduced into the publicly funded health care system in Saskatchewan, Canada. We hypothesize that the introduction of EVA resulted in a decrease in use of high ligation and stripping (HL/S), decreased costs to the health care system, and increased demand of patients for great saphenous vein ablative procedures. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed administrative data to capture cases of HL/S between 2003 and 2014 and cases of EVA of the great saphenous vein (endovenous laser treatment and radiofrequency ablation) between 2007 and 2014...

Objective : Endovenous radiofrequency ablation (RFA), a relatively new technique for treating great saphenous varicose veins, is less invasive compared with stripping surgery. This study examined the mid-term safety and effectiveness of RFA for varicose veins. Materials and Methods : We enrolled 104 patients (147 limbs) who underwent RFA for varicose veins of the lower extremities (females, 67; 64.4%). The mean age was 68.9±9.2 years (39-85 years). In 121 limbs (82.3%), there were great saphenous veins. All patients were observed as outpatients for 12 months after the procedure...

Background There have been well-documented implications of race/ethnicity on the outcome of various vascular diseases, yet there are limited data on risk factors and outcome of lower limb swelling. While many patients improve with endovenous therapy (thermal ablation or iliac vein stenting), some patients' symptoms persist. The goal of this study was to identify clinical factors including race/ethnicity related to persistent leg swelling after treatment with both iliac vein stenting and thermal ablation. Methods From February 2012 to February 2014, this observational study analyzed data for 173 patients with chronic venous insufficiency who underwent both iliac vein stent placement as well as thermal ablation (radiofrequency ablation or endovenous laser ablation)...

BACKGROUND: Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) and radiofrequency-powered segmental ablation (RPSA) of the incompetent great saphenous vein (GSV) are both known for their excellent technical and clinical outcomes for the treatment of varicose veins. RPSA has reduced postprocedural pain and morbidity with shorter recovery time for the patient compared with EVLA using bare-tip fibers. However, new-generation EVLA devices with less traumatic radial-tip fibers (RTFs) operating at longer wavelengths up to 1470 nm also reduce postprocedural pain...

OBJECTIVE: Endovenous thermal ablation has become the primary modality of treatment for patients with venous insufficiency. Previous literature has provided reviews of radiofrequency ablation (RFA) or endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) that mostly focus on the great saphenous vein (GSV) and small saphenous vein (SSV). Data with an extended review including the anterior accessory saphenous vein (ASV) and perforator veins (PVs) have been limited. This study examines the treatment of venous insufficiency with RFA and EVLA of these multiple veins to identify clinical and demographic predictors of both the early success and thrombotic complications of endovenous thermal ablation...

Venous insufficiency of the lower limb is a common disease. Diagnosis is based on symptoms, clinical findings and duplex ultrasound. Consideration and planning of invasive treatment cannot be performed without ultrasound. Vast majority of invasive treatments in superficial venous insufficiency can be done by ultrasound-guided endovenous methods with local anesthesia. Thermoablation (laser of radiofrequency) is the first-line treatment. There are promisisng endovenous methods for treatment of deep venous obstruction in selected cases...

Incidence and severity of both deep vein thrombosis and chronic venous insufficiency are increased with age. Today, however, the significance of these diseases in the elderly patient population are still poorly comprehended. Although most patients have a history of previous treatment, chronic venous insufficiency is usually encountered in the advanced clinical stage. As a result, there is an increase in mobility restrictions, the need for assistance in daily activities and the risk of falls in elderly patients...

Background In previous in vitro and ex vivo studies, we have shown increased thermal spread can be achieved with radiofrequency-induced thermotherapy when using a low power and slower, discontinuous pullback. We aimed to determine the clinical success rate of radiofrequency-induced thermotherapy using this optimised protocol for the treatment of superficial venous reflux in truncal veins. Methods Sixty-three patients were treated with radiofrequency-induced thermotherapy using the optimised protocol and were followed up after one year (mean 16...

REVIEW
A N Kulikova, S V Khaĭrutdinov
The problem regarding treatment of patients suffering from lower limb varicose veins remains a matter of current concern and is important today because of high prevalence of the pathology concerned and a steadily growing number of newly diagnosed cases. Mention should be made that both Russian and foreign phlebologists along with an open surgical operation on veins have more and more often been using minimally invasive endovenous techniques in comprehensive management of patients presenting with varicose veins...

Interventional treatment of venous insufficiency has been revolutionized by endovascular techniques. Some of these techniques, and particularly thermal ablation (endovenous laser, radiofrequency) are now recommended as first-line therapy in the latest international guidelines. This is because of less post-operative pain, a shorter leave from employment and similar or lower recurrence rate. Endovenous techniques allow safer and more efficient treatment of certain particular conditions : small saphenous vein, ulcers, and recurrent varicose veins...
