We offer an innovative technique for the treatment of their varicose veins.

This technique is performed through a small puncture or incision through which a laser fiber is inserted inside the saphenous vein, the entire length of the segment affected by varicose veins or collateral. After inserting the fiber, the occlusion is performed by laser thermal shock leading to a subsequent process of fibrosis, resorption and disappearance of the affected veins.

The endolaser is approved by the U.S. FDA (an agency that controls everything related to healthcare in the U.S.) as a technique for minimally invasive management of varicose veins. The procedure is performed under direct vision, real-time Doppler ultrasound, which allows control of the direct action of the laser fiber inside of the saphenous vein.

This technique avoids the problems of hematoma, wound infection, income, etc. that produce classical surgery of varicose veins.

Without cutting the skin or with minimal cutting, this treatment offers many advantages over conventional treatment:

a) Outpatient surgery under local anesthesia: Undoubtedly, this is one of its main advantages, the power to perform surgery on an outpatient basis without taking up wards without general anesthesia and / or epidural.

b) Fast: The procedure is performed in less than an hour.

c) Minimally invasive (minimal trauma): As is usually done percutaneously and the patient once spoken can go home walking.

d) Excellent results (clinical and aesthetic): You have an efficiency greater than 95% (over traditional surgery).

CONCLUSION: We can say that we are facing a completely innovative technique to treat varicose veins and we can consider today that the ENDOLASER is the future for the treatment of varicose veins.

This technique is performed by two specialists in Angiology and Vascular Surgery (Dr. E. Hernandez and Dr. F. Pañella Osma Agustí) in collaboration with the Medical Institute and currently Vilafortuny are the only center in the province of Tarragona where he performs.
