Venacure EVLT® - Varicose Veins

The VenaCure EVLT system brings remarkable results and significant advantages to remedying superficial vein reflux. The VenaCure EVLT procedure is a minimally invasive, clinically proven alternative to surgical vein stripping that effectively and safely treats varicose veins using a diode laser fibre to occlude the vein. The procedure is easy to perform and gets patients back on their feet in approximately 45 minutes.

Because it's minimally invasive, it can be performed in an out-patient setting, and requires only local anaesthesia. Pre-op to post-op time is less than two hours, with the actual procedure taking about 45 minutes. Patients experience significantly less discomfort, as compared to surgery, both during and after the treatment, and are able to resume to normal activity immediately following the procedure, and most see immediate results.

The procedure works by using highly concentrated laser light emitted into the target area through a thin fibre that is inserted into the vein. The laser heats the blood in the vein, causing the vein wall to collapse. This results in the vein being closed off and preventing further backflow or reflux from that vein.

The VenaCure EVLT system offers:

  • Up to 98 percent success rate with minimal-to-no scarring
  • Can be performed in an outpatient setting
  • Less cost, less time, and fewer complications than other treatment options
