Radio Frequency Endovenous Ablation

Radiofrequency endovenous ablation is an innovative minimally invasive treatment for the closure of varicose veins. The procedure involves the use of radiofrequency waves to heat affected veins and seals them shut. Blood is rerouted through healthy veins nearby, as the treated veins fade from view completely. Recovery is quick and allow for the return to full activity and work within several days

What is the Procedure Like?

Radiofrequency endovenous ablation can be performed in a physician’s office or ambulatory care facility, using local anesthetic. The doctor uses a very fine catheter inserted directly into the affected vein to administer the radiofrequency treatment. The vein wall is carefully heated, which causes the vein to shrink and close. Once treatment is complete, the catheter is removed and the procedure is complete.

The entire procedure typically takes less than one hour to complete. Patients are advised to walk immediately after radiofrequency endovenous treatment, to reduce the risk of swelling and other complications. Compression stockings are also prescribed after treatment, to reduce swelling and promote healing. Regular daily activities can be resumed right away, although patients should refrain from strenuous exercise and heavy lifting for a number of days after treatment.
