EVLT (endovenous laser treatment) Is a minimally invasive procedure used to treat varicose veins. The procedure involves using a laser to heat and close the affected vein, allowing for the blood to be diverted to healthier veins.
The procedure takes an hour or less to complete. After the procedure, the patient is usually able to walk right away, although they may need to wear compression stockings for a few weeks to help reduce swelling and bruising.
The benefits of EVLT are that it is a minimally invasive procedure, does not require general anesthesia, and is relatively painless. The risks of the procedure include infection, scarring, and skin discoloration. However, these risks are rare and the procedure is generally considered to be safe and effective.
Overall, EVLT is an effective and safe procedure for treating varicose veins and can be done in a relatively short amount of time.
