First comparison of endovascular laser coagulation (1470) to traditional veinectomy in the department of surgery and endoscopy FPGE
Varicose is an important medical and social problem. It is the most spread pathological process among vascular diseases of the lower extremities. Thermal ablation of subcutaneous veins has a leading role in modern phlebology. The purpose of the following research was to analyze the first results of endovascular laser coagulation as compared to classic striping of the subcutaneous veins. 43 (53.1%) tradional veinectomies and 38 (46.9%) endovascular surgical conventions were analyzed. Reliable results (p<0.05) were received on coagulated vein hyperpigmentation and appearance of solid-elastic strand after endovascular methods and on subfascial hematomas after veinectomies.
