Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) is also referred to as Endolaser. EVLT is an endovenous laser treatment preformed as a minimally invasive ultrasound-guided technique used for treating large varicose veins. Laser heat kills the walls of the veins then body naturally absorbs the dead tissue leads to destruction of abnormal veins.
Endovenous thermal ablation is a new technique that uses a laser or high-frequency radio waves to create intense local heat in the varicose vein or incompetent vein. Heat is directed through a catheter to close up the targeted vessel. This treatment closes off the problem veins but leaves them in place so there is minimal bleeding and bruising. Compared with ligation and stripping, many patients find that endovenous thermal ablation results in less pain and a faster return to normal activities, with similar cosmetic results.
