: Background: Lower limb varicose veins affect 25 million people in worldwide, with complaints varying from purely cosmetic to debilitating disease, all of which require some sort of intervention. Methodology: 50 patients of varicose veins admitted under Department of Surgery in MGM Medical College and Hospital, Aurangabad , from April 2014 to November 2015, were studied. All the patients underwent Endovenous Laser Therapy[ EVLT] under local anaesthesia under ultrasonography guidance using…

Outcome of Endovenous Laser Ablation of Varicose Veins
Evaluated and compared primary posttreatment outcomes of endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) with classical surgical method of varicose vein treatment found EVLA offers better patient recovery in terms of significantly lower post treatment pain, faster return to everyday activities and lower incidence of bruising.
Adoption of endovenous laser treatment as the primary treatment modality for varicose veins: the Auckland City Hospital experience.
Evaluating endovenous laser treatment as the primary treatment modality for varicose veins at Auckland City Hospital found it to be a safe and effective treatment and there has been a large increase in the number of patients treated.
Retrospective Comparison of Clinical Outcomes between Endovenous Laser and Saphenous Vein-sparing Surgery for Treatment of Varicose Veins
The CHIVA patients had less pain postoperatively and a significantly higher sclerotherapy-free period compared to patients in the EVL group, and both groups benefited significantly from surgery in disease-specific perceptions.
Endovenous laser treatment for varicose veins in Singapore: a single centre experience of 169 patients over two years.
Early results with EVLT have been impressive, and this study has reaffirmed the safety and effectiveness of EVLT in the treatment of varicose veins.
Randomized Clinical Trial of Endovenous Laser Ablation Versus Conventional Surgery for Small Saphenous Varicose Veins
Evaluated endovenous laser ablation produced the same clinical benefits as conventional surgery but was more effective in addressing the underlying pathophysiology and was associated with less periprocedural morbidity allowing a faster recovery.
Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation for the Treatment of Varicose Veins
The current technology using RFA in saphenous vein ablation with the Closure catheter system is examined, which has exhibited significant improvement in the ease of use and the procedure speed over the previous generation catheters while maintaining the favorable patient recovery profile seen with the RFA technology.
Comparative Study of Cryostripping and Endovenous Laser Therapy for Varicose Veins: Mid-Term Results
Cryostripping seems to be a safe and feasible method for the treatment of varicose veins, considering its cost-effectiveness and mid-term clinical outcomes, which were not inferior to those of EVLT.
Comparable effectiveness of endovenous laser ablation and high ligation with stripping of the great saphenous vein: two-year results of a randomized clinical trial (RELACS study).
Both EVLT and HLS are comparably safe and effective procedures to treat GSV incompetence and both equally improved medical condition (Homburg Varicose Vein Severity Score) and disease-related quality of life.
