Recanalization rates with different wavelength laaser EVLT - 810 nm, 980 nm, 1470 nm
Wednesday, November 28, 2012

 

A study from Poland has tried to determine recanalization rates of saphenous veins after EVLT using different fibers and energy sources in a prospective manner.

 

Recanalization rates were 7% after EVLT 980, 2% after EVLT 810 and 0% after EVLT 1470. 

 

According to the authros, "vein shrinking was fastest after EVLT 1470. Neither neovascularization nor formation of arteriovenous fistulas was observed. Permanent saphenous nerve paresthesia occurred in two patients after RFA (VNUS or Venefit procedure).

 

The authors concluded that all methods of ambulatory EVTT are safe and effective once the adequate linear energy density is applied.

 

The study was conducted at the Department of General and Vascular Surgery, Medical University in Poznan and published in the

Pol Przegl Chir. 2011 Nov 1;83(11):597-605.
