Varicose veins of the lower extremities
In the event that any conservative treatment is not responsive, the doctor will consider conducting a laser burning or endovascular high-frequency wave procedure to remove the diseased vein.
Dr. shared that, in the past, when there was no laser burning technique or high-frequency waves, the doctor opened it to peel off the entire dilated vein, causing the risk of bleeding and infection after surgery.
Now, using the new method, the doctor opens only a small mark on the leg to insert the laser conductor into the lumen of the vein.
The energy source at the end of the conductor will fibrosis the inner layer of the vein, causing the lumen of the vessel to contract, leading to atrophy of the entire dilated vein.
