Edovenous Thermal Ablation (EVTA) is the single most important advancement for treating varicose veins in a century! Previously, one would be exposed to the risks of both surgery and general anesthesia for vein stripping, followed by a painful recovery with permanent scars.
Approximately 15 years ago EVTA was developed. This innovative process involves threading a small fiber into the diseased saphenous vein hidden below the surface, positioning it properly, and then slowly withdrawing the fiber with thermal energy turned on. Just as a dentist numbs a tooth, local anesthesia is first applied to make this a painless procedure.
When combined with simultaneous ultrasound guided sclerotherapy UGS for surface branches, this frequently eliminates the need for multiple treatment sessions with a 95% success rate.
