How does EVLT work ?
The vein is punctured through an anaesthetised site at about the
knee for the thigh vein or the ankle for the calf vein. A wire is
passed up the vein, a 45cm long fine tube is passed over the wire,
and the laser probe is introduced through the tube. Local
anaesthetic is infiltrated around the vein at several levels using
extremely fine needles directed by ultrasound. The laser tip is
precisely positioned just below the end of the saphenous vein using
ultrasound guidance. The probe is activated and slowly withdrawn
destroying the full length of the vein. The procedure involves
minimal discomfort. Compression stocking is applied after
Patients should only suffer minimal discomfort during the
