EVLA (Varicose Veins) Not needed

Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVA) or EVLT or Endovenous laser treatment is a procedure that uses laser energy to treat varicose veins under local anaesthesia. This can be done as an outpatient procedure which can take around 30 minutes and the patient can be discharged on the same day.
Using an USG machine, the abnormal varicose veins in the legs are mapped and highlighted. A local aesthetic is injected around the veins before the start of the procedure to ensure that the veins are sufficiently insulated from the surrounding tissues. Slight tingling or pressure around the area of LASER application is normal. the procedure is quite tolerable. Under ultrasound guidance, LASER fiber is passed into the vein and once it is switched on, the fiber is pulled back slowly as it destroys the abnormal veins. Once the procedure is complete, the LASER treated area will be wrapped preventively along with medications to numb the pain, kept on observation and sent home the same day.
