This technique to treat varicose veins is carried out by introducing an optical fiber of a diode laser into the lumen of the vein, proceeding, under ecodoppler control, to occlusion of the vein and consequent definitive and effective solution of varicose veins.. This is how, basically, the endolaser technique for varicose veins is carried out.

Action mode

The effect of the endolaser is produced because the blood has the ability to transmit laser energy virtually intact to the structures that surround it. The energy of the laser produces a photocoagulation reaching a temperature of 85 ° C with the effect of vaporization and coagulation inside the vein.

Technique steps

1. Drawing and marking varicose veins guided by ultrasound

2. Local anesthesia

3. Introduction of fiber optics

Four. Emission of pulses of energy by the laser inside the vein

5. Ultrasound examination in the occlusion of varicose veins

The treatment of varicose veins with endolaser is a safe method that is done on an outpatient basis and with immediate employment .
