Varicose Veins Treatment with Endovenous Laser Ablation
At the beginning of the 2000s, there was a revolution in the treatment of veins that cause large varicose veins. An Interventional Radiologist named Robert Min and his team treated the damaged valve in the Great Saphenous Vein for the first time with the “Endovenous Laser Ablation” (EVLA) method. This method is based on the principle of closing the damaged valve with laser energy by entering through the vein like an angio, instead of removing the leaking vein by surgically pulling it out. There is no leakage into the varicose veins from the vein closed with the laser; This closed vein is also destroyed by the body over time. When the saphenous vein is burned and closed, the visible varicose veins also shrink and disappear. When the diseased vein is removed, other healthy veins take on the task of carrying blood and provide venous circulation of the leg.
Advantages Of Endovenous Laser Ablation:
• The procedure takes less than 1 hour and immediate improvement in symptoms is observed.
• Immediate return to daily activities is possible. There may be very little pain and bruising, but it will pass within 10 days.
• No surgical scars or stitches. Because the incision on the skin is the size of the pen tip.
• Higher success and less recurrence rate compared to surgery.
• Patient satisfaction after the procedure is very high
• The success rate is between 93-100%.
Capillary Varicose Treatment

• With the Exotherme Laser device, the treatment of capillary varicose veins is done much faster and more reliably.
• Thanks to the special cooling system, laser applications are performed painlessly and eliminate the risk of burns that may occur after the procedure.
• Correct treatment is applied by seeing with the special camera system of the Exotherme device.
