Endovenous Laser (EVLT™)
Endovenous Laser Ablation Therapy (EVLT) for Varicose Veins
What is Endovenous Laser
Ablation Therapy (EVLT)?
The EVLT 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.
