Great saphenous vein remodeling using LASER with low-energy linear endovenous energy density, no tumescence, and associated surgical techniques

Author(s): Ferracani E*, Bercovich J and Schulte C

The objective was reduce at the half the GSV diameter trough remodeling of the great saphenous vein by 1470 LASER LEED flexibility (setting parameters) as a method to counteract Valsalva reflux.

A prospective study of 38 patients done in two centers is presented using a combined approach of sparing techniques plus LASER 1470 nm .The purpose was avoid unnecessary ablation of the great saphenous vein (GSV) at the early hemodynamic stages (diameter below 9 mm, peak reflux speed below 30 cc/s and total reflux volume (TRV) between 10 and 100 cc/s).

The study was under the supervision of the Ethical Committee and Scientific Department of the Argentine Society of Phlebology and Lymphology, Chairman Dr. Daniel Garcia, June 9 2017, and approved during the plenary session. No number registration was given. Each patient gave signed informed consent. Thirty-eight middle-aged patients, 29 women and 9 men, with clinical, etiologic, anatomic, pathophysiologic (CEAP) classification C2-5 were included.

This study does not record background into the world bibliography, therefore doesn’t exist comparison parameters available.
