Short Term Outcome of Adjunct Foam Sclerotherapy for Varicose Veins in Patients Subjected to RFA at Dhulikhel Hospital, Nepal.

Conclusions: Adjunct sclerotherapy showed complication rate of roughly one tenth and one fifth of the treated cases in immediate and early postoperative follow-up. PMID: 31687213 [PubMed]

Authors: Mitschang C, Mühlberger D, Goerge T Abstract The chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) of the leg veins is one of the most common diseases in our society. Thus, it is important to know the clinical picture of CVI and the pros and cons of the different treatment options. Of the various treatments available for varicose veins (conservative therapy, operative procedures, endoluminal techniques, foam sclerotherapy), an evidence-based, treatment option should be individually chosen for each patient. In this article, the pros and cons of surgery are compared with endoluminal therapy in order to draw practical ...

Introduction - Cyanoacrylate embolization (CAE) for varicose veins has recently been introdued for treatment of the incompetent saphenous vein. Although the preliminary studies have been limited to moderate-sized great saphenous veins, larger diameter of the saphenous vein up to 20mm has been included in some report. The purpose of our study is to investigate the correlation between the stump length and preoperative duplex parameters including the diameter, reflux time (RT), and peak reflux velocity (PRV) of the saphenous vein after CAE.

Introduction: Ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy (UGFS) is an alternative and supplementary method for endovenous thermal ablation (EVTA) to treat incompetent saphenous reflux (ISR) and branch varicose veins (BVV).[1] The long-term result is not as satisfactory as EVTA, even while administered by catheter-directed method with or without tumescent local anesthesia.[2,3,4] Combined high ligation(HS) of sapheno-femoral junction(SFJ)/ sapheno-popliteal junction (SPJ) and reversed catheter-directed foam sclerotherapy (rCDFS) to treat ISR is an idea to assure SFJ/SPJ closure, avoid foam leaking into deep vein and enhance foam-...

Introduction - Anterior accessory saphenous vein (AASV) insufficiency is one of the most common causes of late recurrence after endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) for great saphenous vein (GSV) insufficiency1)2). Therefore, reduction of the AASV patency rate after EVLA can be associated with better long-term results. The aim of this study is to compare the patency rate of saphenofemoral junction tributaries after EVLA between bare-tip and radial fibers.

Introduction: Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) is one of the treatment options for lower limb varicose veins. Recent development of newer optical fibres requires clinical studies to explore the technical aspects of their use and to define the optimal energy parameters in EVLA.

Introduction: endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) is efficacy and safe for varicose veins treatment. Despite the absence of strict technical regulations and recommendations for the use of various laser devices, the use of diode lasers with a wavelength of 1470-1560 nm and optical fibres with radial emission is today considered the most optimal, effective, and safe. The possibility of usage of Slim radial fibre with a diameter of 400 microns for EVLA of the saphenous veins is currently not known.
