Endovascular Laser: One Leg

Description

Currently Minimally Invasive Varicose Vein Surgery with Endolaser Multidiode 980 nm. allows a quick, easy and safe solution to this problem. Applying the laser energy through a optic fibre inside the vein, essential varicose veins can be treated in the outpatient department with local anaesthetic guided by an ecodoppler, without leaving scars, with minimum discomfort and returning home in the same day and, in the majority of cases, an almost immediate return to work.

Numerous studies indicate that the sealing of the varicose vain without extraction with endolaser is a less aggressive technique and much safer than conventional surgery, as well as treating very thick varicose veins in diverse locations. Generally all patients that would have needed an operation before can be treated, without the inconveniences of open surgery. It is necessary to perform a previous exhaustive exploration with ecodoppler, there is also no problems if the patient has been operated on before with conventional techniques. Your surgeon will explain each of the steps to follow to get the best results.
Consult your surgeon about the advantages and disadvantages of this technique and he will help you to make the best decision in your case. At Instituto Medico Miramar we have all the recent lasers for varicose vein treatments, like the Endolaser Multidiode 980 nm. The varicose vain pathology affects, approximately, 22% of the adult population. The two main forms of this pathology are:

Essential varicose veins (18%) are produced when the valves of any of the two collecting branches (intern and extern saphenous veins) of the superficial venous system of the inferior members are insufficient. The return of the blood to the heart is inverted and the affluent veins dilate. The most frequent complication is thrombophlebitis..
Chronic venous insufficiency (4%), happens when the valves of perforating veins of the legs malfunction. The venous pressure of the system is transferred to a small area of the skin, spots of a ochre colour appear, pain, varicose veins and ulcers on the lower half of the leg, which is the most dangerous complication. It is frequent to see both pathologies together. The diagnosis is performed by the clinic by ecodoppler. They have been treated traditionally by open surgery with differing results, generally unsightly. The Minimally Invasive Surgery with Endolaser Multidiode 980 nm. allows us to solve these pathologies in a quick, simple and safe way.
