OBJECTIVE The study was conducted to assess the efficacy and rate of complications of endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) of the short saphenous vein (SSV). METHODS During a 17-month period, 210 (187 patients) with SSV incompetence documented by duplex ultrasound studies were treated with EVLT using a 980-nm diode laser. Duplex ultrasound examinations were(More)
Endovenous laser treatment (EVLT) has become a standard therapy for the treatment of superficial venous insufficiency. It offers a rapid, office-based therapy with minimal patient downtime and an easier recovery than traditional surgical treatment. EVLT is effective and durable and can successfully treat saphenous truncal insufficiency and accessory(More)
Schema mappings are logical assertions that specify the relationships between a source and a target schema in a declarative way. The specification of such mappings is a fundamental problem in information integration. Mappings can be generated by existing mapping systems (semi-)automatically from a visual specification between two schemas. In general, the(More)
BACKGROUND Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS or drones) could potentially be used for the routine transport of small goods such as diagnostic clinical laboratory specimens. To the best of our knowledge, there is no published study of the impact of UAS transportation on laboratory tests. METHODS Three paired samples were obtained from each one of 56 adult(More)
Foam sclerotherapy has been refined over the past decade to become a safe and effective treatment for varicose veins and venous insufficiency. Using duplex ultrasound guidance, it can be used to treat large and small varicosities, saphenous trunks, incompetent perforating veins, and venous stasis ulcerations. Serious complications are rare, and in(More)
