Endovenous thermal ablation (EVTA) techniques are very effective for the treatment of varicose veins, but their exact working mechanism is still not well documented. The lack of knowledge of mechanistic properties has led to a variety of EVTA protocols and a commercially driven dissemination of new or modified techniques without robust scientific evidence. The aim of this study is to compare temperature profiles of 980-and 1,470-nm endovenous laser ablation (EVLA), segmental radiofrequency… Expand
Comparing 1470- and 980-nm diode lasers for endovenous ablation treatments
TLDR
Evaluating the effectiveness of endovenous laser ablation in saphenous veins found EVLA with the 1470-nm laser have less energy deposition for occlusion and better treatment response. Expand
Review of Endovenous Thermal Ablation of the Great Saphenous Vein: Endovenous Laser Therapy Versus Radiofrequency Ablation
TLDR
Efficacy and recurrence rate seem to favor EVLT, whereas postoperative pain and bruising favor RFA, and further studies are needed to validate the significance of the differences found. Expand
No significant difference between 1940 and 1470 nm in endovenous laser ablation using an in vitro porcine liver model
TLDR
Comparison of thermal spread and carbonisation of EVLA using these two wavelengths, in the porcine liver model, found no evidence to support reduced power or LEED when using 1940 nm, but 1940 nm may be more advantageous than 1470 nm when ablating small thin-walled veins, near to the skin. Expand

TLDR
Sonographic follow-up at 1 year shows that EVLA is an effective and safe procedure with excellent technical success rates in the treatment of large GSVs. Expand
Ultrasound and photoacoustic imaging for enhanced image-guided endovenous laser ablation procedures
Nearly 20% of the United States’ population is affected by varicose veins at some point in their lives. Currently, ultrasound (US) imaging is used as clinical imaging modality to help surgeonsExpand
Photoacoustic-guided endovenous laser ablation: Characterization and in vivo canine study
TLDR
In vivo imaging results indicated that the PA-guided EVLA system can provide high contrast and accurate images of the ablation catheter tip overlaid on US images ofThe background tissue, and absorption-compensated PA signal amplitudes over a relevant range of temperature were measured and demonstrated.

Efficacy of High Temporal Frequency Photoacoustic Guidance of Laser Ablation Procedures
TLDR
The proposed high frame rate (500 Hz), combined ultrasound (US), and PA-guided ablation system will potentially enhance the outcome of ablation procedures by providing location and temperature feedback. Expand
Endoluminal application of glass-capped diffuser for ex vivo endovenous photocoagulation.
TLDR
The proposed glass-capped diffusing applicator can be a feasible therapeutic device for EVLA with minimal complications by entailing low maximum temperatures and uniform tissue denaturation in the venous tissue. Expand
The relative roles of power, linear endovenous energy density, and pullback velocity in determining short-term success after endovenous laser ablation of the truncal saphenous veins.
TLDR
The findings suggest that use of higher power outputs and greater LEED values (≥90% success probability achieved with power >10.34 W or LEED >26.56 J/cm) may yield optimal results. Expand

Endovenous laser ablation of great saphenous veins using a 1470 nm diode laser and the radial fibre – follow-up after six months
TLDR
Evaluated EVLA of GSV with a radially emitting laser fibre by using a 1470 nm diode laser is a safe and efficient treatment option and postoperative ecchymoses in the track of the treated GSV was rare. Expand
Endovenous laser ablation: mechanism of action
TLDR
The existing histological reports confirm that EVLA produces a transmural vein wall injury, typically associated with perforations and carbonization, which causes permanent vein closure through a high-temperature photothermolytic process at the point of contact between the vein and the laser. Expand
Temperature measurements for dose-finding in steam ablation.
TLDR
The objective of the experiment was to better understand the heat profile induced by steam and to investigate the heat induction of 1, 2, and 3 puffs/cm using steam ablation. Expand
Endovenous simulated laser experiments at 940 nm and 1470 nm suggest wavelength-independent temperature profiles.
TLDR
The experiments show that wavelength on its own has not been demonstrated to be an important parameter to influence the temperature profile, and decreasing the pullback speed and increasing the power both cause higher maximal temperature and a longer time above the temperature for collagen denaturation.

TLDR
Intravascular blood plays a key role for homogeneously distributed thermal damage of the inner vein wall during EVLT, and EVLT-induced vessel wall injury was confined to the site of direct laser impact. Expand
Saphenous Laser Ablation at 1470 nm Targets the Vein Wall, Not Blood
TLDR
Closure with a dramatic reduction in energy when compared to a 980-nm wavelength control demonstrated a marked reduction in postoperative pain and ecchymosis; this implies that vein-wall perforations are minimized with this system. Expand
