BACKGROUND In recent years, endovenous laser treatment (ELT) has been proposed to treat incompetent great saphenous veins (GSV). This study reports the long-term outcome of ELT in a series of 500 patients. METHODS Incompetent GSV segments in 500 patients (436 women, 64 men) with a mean age of 52.6 years (range, 19 to 83 years) were treated with intraluminal ELT using a 980-nm diode laser (Pharaon, Osyris, France). The GSV diameter was measured by Duplex examination in an upright position in… CONTINUE READING
