Varicose vein radiofrequency treatment
Why radiofrequency ablation for varicose veins?
Radiofrequency ablation for varicose veins is a state-of-the-art, mini-invasive procedure for the treatment of superficial venous insufficiency, which causes varicose veins. It is an ultrasound-guided technique by which a thin catheter is inserted into the affected vein using a needle. The catheter is connected to an external radiofrequency (RF) generator. Radiofrequency generates a temperature of 120°C, which is emitted from the tip of the catheter in 20-second cycles. This heats the collagen in the vein which subsequently contracts, causing the vein itself to close. This modern technique completely avoids surgery-related complications and the subsequent aesthetic damage, allowing the patient to enjoy an optimal level of comfort with minimal pain and discomfort both during the procedure itself and afterwards. The radiofrequency catheter emits energy into the interior of the varicose vein, causing it to permanently close but without the tissue damage and potential peripheral nerve damage that was characteristic of the traditional "stripping" technique.
