Excerpt: Endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) is a minimally invasive ultrasound-guided technique used for treating varicose veins using laser energy. Methods Endovenous laser treatment is a treatment for varicose veins in which an optical fiber is inserted into the vein to be treated, and laser light, normally in the infrared portion of the spectrum , is shone into the interior of the vein. This causes the vein to contract, and the optical fiber is slowly withdrawn. Some minor complications can occur, including thrombophlebitis , pain, hematoma , edema and infection, which can lead to cellulitis . During the procedure, a catheter bearing a laser fibre is inserted under ultrasound guidance into the great saphenous vein (GSV) or small saphenous vein (SSV) through a small puncture. The catheter is then advanced (also under ultrasound guidance) to the level of the groin or knee crease. Dilute local anaesthetic is injected around and along the vein (perivascular infiltration). The laser is activated whilst the catheter or laser fibre is slowly withdrawn, resulting in obliteration of the saphenous vein along its entire length.
