INTRODUCTION: Varicocele is a relatively complex pathology of the scrotum veins', known to be one of the easiest to treat. Modern treatment involves both surgical (open, laparoscopic and microsurgery) and interventional approach (either with coils and/or sclerosant injection). Our aim is to demonstrate the feasibility and the reliability of endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) of the spermatic vein for the treatment of varicocele. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We consecutively and prospectively treated 11 patients (age range 24-45 years old, mean 31y) with left varicocele, phlebografically classified as Bahren type I and with indication for percutaneous treatment...

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...

Aims To report on great saphenous vein diameter distribution of patients undergoing endovenous laser ablation for lower limb varicose veins and the ablation technique for large diameter veins. Methods We collected retrospective data of 1929 (943 left leg and 986 right leg) clinically incompetent great saphenous vein diameters treated with endovenous laser ablation over five years and six months. The technical success of procedure, complications and occlusion rate at short-term follow-up are reported. Upon compression, larger diameter veins may constrict asymmetrically rather than concentrically around the laser fibre (the 'smile sign'), requiring multiple passes of the laser into each dilated segment to achieve complete ablation...

BACKGROUND: Endovenous thermal ablation of the small saphenous vein carries a risk for sural nerve injury. Ablation above mid-calf level is recommended to avoid it. However, this strategy could not eradicate this complication. We present our results of consecutive 30 small saphenous vein thermal ablations which are performed after ultrasonographic identification of the sural nerve. METHODS: We studied 26 consecutive subjects with a total of 30 limbs. Ablation was performed proximal to the risk point by a 1470-nm diode laser...

Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is defined as an irresistible urge to move the legs, which is usually accompanied by paresthesias or dysesthesias at least twice weekly, and affects 2%-4% of adults in Europe and North America. This systematic review assesses the current complementary and alternative options for RLS and the potential benefits of those treatments on sleep quality, mood disorder, and quality of life. A systematic search of the PubMed, Embase, Cochrane, and Web of Science databases was conducted. Eighteen studies met the inclusion criterion, which included the use of the international RLS study group criteria...

BACKGROUND: Endoluminal laser ablation is now considered the method of choice for treating greater saphenous vein insufficiency. General anesthesia and peripheral nerve blocks with sedation have the risk of post-procedural delay in discharge and prolonged immobilization with the risk of deep vein thrombosis. The main pain experienced by patients during the procedure is during the laser ablation and the multiple needle punctures given along and around the great saphenous vein. The aim of our study was to evaluate the safety and efficacy of blocking the femoral nerve only under ultrasound-guidance without sedation, to reduce or prevent pain during injectable tumescent anesthesia in endovenous laser ablation of the greater saphenous vein...

The endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) of the insufficient saphenous vein has similar results to open conventional surgery, but less morbidity. The echo-guided polidocanol foam sclerotherapy technique has been used for the same purpose. The combined techniques may play a role for more severe diseases, such as those with varicose ulcers. An EVLA device (called VELAS) has been developed in the Optics and Photonics Research Center of USP-São Carlos in agreement with FMB-UNESP. In this study, we present the preliminary results of the VELAS device (MMO 980nm diode) in patients with chronic venous ulcer, associated with echo-guided polidocanol foam sclerotherapy for the treatment of varicosities...

During endovenous ablation for the treatment of insufficient veins, failure to cannulate the entirety of the refluxing vein with the treatment catheter prevents technically successful ablation. In this technique report, we describe a defined protocol to overcome cannulation failure of axial veins for endovenous ablation. This protocol utilizes commonly available adjunctive techniques including ultrasound-guided digital compression, the use of a guidewire, the use of a guide catheter, and placement of a second puncture site in a step-wise fashion to overcome varying degrees of tortuosity or obstruction...

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...
