Endovenous Ablation Therapy
Endovenous Ablation Therapy for Varicose Veins
What is Endovenous Ablation Therapy?
Endovenous ablation therapy is a minimally invasive procedure that makes use of catheters, lasers, and ultrasound to treat varicose veins. This procedure is performed most often on veins that are still relatively straight and untwisted.
The endovenous ablation therapy procedure at The Vein Institute Of Toronto begins with our interventional radiologist, Dr. Sanjoy Kundu, inserting a catheter into the varicose vein. Using ultrasound to see inside the patient, Dr. Kundu guides the catheter through the vein. A laser at the end of the catheter heats the walls of the vein, which closes it. This causes blood to stop flowing through the vein.
As the body recovers after the procedure, circulation becomes more efficient since blood is not flowing through a faulty vein and the problem vein shrinks and fades.
