The aim of this study is to compare two groups of patients treated for great saphenous vein (GSV) reflux with open surgical saphenofemoral ligation (SFL) and EndoVenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) MATERIALS AND
Consecutive patients with primary unilateral GSV reflux undergoing EVLA treatment since 2014 were enrolled, and another series of patients treated with SFL was considered. The patients were stratified according to treatment and the results were compared using the propensity score (1:1). The covariables were age, gender, BMI, CEAP staging, and GSV and Saphenofemoral Junction diameters. Primary outcome were GSV occlusion or recurrent groin varicose veins at one year after treatment. Secondary outcomes included vein thrombosis, hyperpigmentation, paresthesia, postoperative pain, analgesic requirement, and ecchymosis assessed at discharge and CEAP stage and Quality of life (QoL) assessment one month after surgery.

To compare the effect of cold or room temperature of tumescence anesthesia solution on pain perception during and after endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) for varicose veins of lower limb. Methods: A...
The objective of this study was to describe the relative contributions of power output, linear endovenous energy density (LEED), and pullback rate (PBR) in determining successful long-term occlusion o...
Endovenous heat-induced thrombosis (EHIT) is a thrombus that extends from an ablated saphenous vein into the common femoral vein after endovenous radiofrequency ablation (RFA).
This study investigated the efficacy of photodynamic therapy (PDT) using EmunDo as a photosensitizer against Lactobacillus acidophilus. A gallium aluminum arsenide diode laser was used in this experim...
Varicose vein surgery is among the most commonly performed surgical interventions. The standard treatment 'high ligation and stripping' has in many countries been replaced by endovenous techniques. Ho...

A randomised clinical trial comparing endovenous laser ablation and mechanochemical ablation (ClariVein®) in the management of superficial venous insufficiency.
The purpose of this study is to determine retrospectively if the application of rivaroxaban after endovenous laser ablation with and without miniphlebectomy is safe and if it lowers the ri...

a randomized controlled single-blinded study. the hypothesis of this clinical trial is that disjunctive use of diode laser improve the clinical parameters of periodontists , and there are ...
A surgical technique to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS of the EYE, such as MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. In this method, a flap of CORNEAL EPITHELIUM is created by exposure of the area to dilute alcohol. The flap is lifted and then replaced after laser ablation of the subepithelial CORNEA.
Lasers with a semiconductor diode as the active medium. Diode lasers transform electric energy to light using the same principle as a light-emitting diode (LED), but with internal reflection capability, thus forming a resonator where a stimulated light can reflect back and forth, allowing only a certain wavelength to be emitted. The emission of a given device is determined by the active compound used (e.g., gallium arsenide crystals doped with aluminum or indium). Typical wavelengths are 810, 1,060 and 1,300 nm.

A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).
Techniques using laser energy in combination with a balloon catheter to perform angioplasty. These procedures can take several forms including: 1, laser fiber delivering the energy while the inflated balloon centers the fiber and occludes the blood flow; 2, balloon angioplasty immediately following laser angioplasty; or 3, laser energy transmitted through angioplasty balloons that contain an internal fiber.
Treatment using irradiation with LASER light of low power intensity so that the effects are not due to heat, as in LASER THERAPY. These non-thermal effects are thought to be mediated by a photochemical reaction that alters CELL MEMBRANE PERMEABILITY, leading to increased mRNA synthesis and CELL PROLIFERATION. Low-level laser therapy has been used for a wide variety of conditions, but most frequently for wound healing and pain control.
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
