What is endovenous thermal ablation (laser therapy) for venous disease?
Endovenous thermal ablation, also called laser therapy, is a newer technique that uses a laser or high-frequency radio waves to create intense local heat in the varicose vein or incompetent vein.
Heat is directed through a catheter to close up the targeted vessel. This treatment closes off the problem veins but leaves them in place so there is minimal bleeding and bruising.
Laser ablation uses an endovenous laser (within the vein) to treat varicose veins. Also known as endovenous ablation or ELVS or EVLT, it is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure. Under local anesthesia, using ultrasound as a guide, the interventional radiologist inserts a small laser fiber into the vein. A precise dose of energy produced by the laser collapses the vein and reroutes the circulation to other healthy veins. This is a low-risk treatment that improves circulation, and alleviates the symptoms of varicose veins and venous insufficiency.
Compared with ligation and stripping, many patients find that endovenous thermal ablation results in less pain and a faster return to normal activities, with similar cosmetic results.

Why is this procedure performed? Why do I need this procedure?
The goals of treatment are to reduce symptoms and reduce the risk of complications from venous disease, including blood clots.
Patients who have large, symptomatic varicose veins and those with incompetent saphenous veins are candidates for this procedure. This procedure is essentially taking the place of “vein stripping.”
Each patient is evaluated, and treatment will be individualized for the patient’s circumstances.
