BACKGROUND Endovenous laser ablation (EVLA) was performed in the treatment of great and small saphenous veins (GSVs, SSVs), perforating veins (PVs), and varicose collaterals (VCs). OBJECTIVE To verify the outcome in PVs and VCs. MATERIALS AND METHODS Four hundred eighty-two limbs of 306 patients were studied. EVLA was performed on 167 GSVs, 52 SSVs, and 534 PVs of 303 limbs and on VCs of 467 limbs; 133 GSVs were stripped, 300 of saphenofemoral junctions (SFJs) and 45 saphenopopliteal… CONTINUE READING
