Minivasive surgical treatment of varicouse veins.
The invasive treatment of venous reflux and superficial varicose veins improves the quality of life with respect to elastocompressive conservative treatment.
Conventional surgical treatment of the large incontinence vein vein has been represented for years by crossectomy (vein ligament al the level of deep venous junction) and stripping combined with local flebectomy (surgical removal of small varicose veins). Over the last decade, mini-invasive techniques, including eco-guided sclerotherapy and intravenous laser ablation have gained popularity in the treatment of varicose veins, and have largely replaced surgery.
These new techniques are less invasive than conventional surgery, and are associated with post-operative recovery with faster recovery, less pain, and minor complications such as hematomas, inguinal wound infections, and nerve damage. Laser thermoablative techniques are minivasive procedures performed by endovascular, that is, carried out by navigating inside the venous vessels to be treated (an undercurrent method).
These procedures are aimed at the occlusion of incontinent venous trunk using thermoablative methods. Laser energy is converted into thermal energy, which causes inflammation of the venous walls and finally fibrosis, resulting in obliteration of the vessel.
