Description of EVLT Procedure

EVLT is a relatively simple procedure.  Dr Singireddy uses ultrasound to see the vein being treated.  After giving local anesthetic (usually lidocaine) a small needle is used to get into the vein and a thin wire is advanced through this needle over which a catheter is advanced into the vein and positioned appropriately.  


A thin laser fiber is then inserted through the catheter.  Following this local anesthesia is given surrounding the vein.  The laser fiber is activated and slowly withdrawn to shut the vein close.  Laser energy is delivered to seal the faulty vein, shrinking and closing the vein so that the blood cannot flow through it.  This eliminates the feeding vein at its source.  After treatment, blood flow is then diverted to the many normal veins in the leg. 

Most patients will see relief of symptoms such as leg pain and leg heaviness in a few days and can regain the confidence to wear shorts and dresses soon afterwords. Patients are also encouraged to return to normal activities immediately.  


 
After the Procedure

Following the procedure, dressing and compression stocking will be applied which should be kept for 48 hours (2days),  following which the dressing is removed and patient may shower and wear the stocking back on again immediately for 5 additional days, day and night but may take the stocking off to shower each day.  Patients can resume most of the normal activities the day after the procedure.

However patients are expected to avoid weightlifting more than 50 pounds.  Running, jogging and active sports (like football, tennis, volley ball etc) should be avoided for 2 weeks. Walking is encouraged.

Application of ice packs along the course of the treated vein will help in reducing pain, swelling and bruising.  Patients are advised to avoid sunbathing and hot tub bath as long as there is a bruise.  Patients are seen for follow up at Suncoast Vein & Vascular Clinic 4 to 5 weeks after the laser procedure.
