EVLA Over “Vein Stripping”

Many patients will recall “vein stripping” as being a difficult procedure to endure in which the entire saphenous vein is removed through large skin incisions. With the current techniques, there is no need for skin incisions or anesthesia to treat troublesome varicose veins.

What Is Laser Vein Ablation?

Endovenous laser ablation (EVLT) – along with radiofrequency ablation (RFA) – has emerged as the preferred non-surgical technique for treating varicose veins, surpassing traditional surgical stripping. This minimally invasive procedure effectively addresses venous reflux, boasting high long-term success rates. The laser vein ablation procedure is done directly in Vein Specialist Centers’ offices under local anesthesia by the best vascular specialists in New Jersey and New York. Moreover, it leaves no scars, can be completed in under an hour, and allows patients to resume their daily activities immediately after treatment.

How Is EVLA Performed?

Using ultrasound guidance, a laser fiber is carefully inserted into the troublesome vein through a small incision in the skin. Once positioned, the laser emits energy directly into the vein, resulting in its permanent closure. The procedure typically takes less than an hour to complete. Afterward, patients are usually able to drive themselves without assistance.

What Happens After EVLA?

You might be wondering what you can expect after your vein ablation procedure. Once it is complete, the blood is automatically redirected to healthy veins. Leg circulation actually improves immediately after the procedure! After your endovenous laser ablation treatment, walking is encouraged.

Is Laser Vein Ablation Painful?

Luckily, there is no need for any pain medications post-procedure, and most activities can be resumed in a few days. The treatment of venous reflux with EVLT has proven to be highly effective, surpassing the success rates of surgical stripping in the long term.
