Laser Ablation, also known as Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA), is a type of medical treatment option used in the treatment of chronic venous disorders caused by venous hypertension. Laser ablation is an ultrasound guided, minimally invasive treatment for incompetent veins. This safe treatment option uses laser energy to cauterize, or burn, and finally close the incompetent veins.
The underlying goal for all laser ablation procedures is to deliver sufficient thermal energy to the wall of an incompetent vein segment to produce irreversible occlusion, fibrosis, and ultimately disappearance of the vein.
Laser ablation may be used for cosmetic purposes, but it is most commonly used to help alleviate symptoms related of chronic venous disease such as:
Laser ablation is considered a safe treatment option & is less invasive than conventional surgery, while leaving virtually no scars.
