Endovenous radiofrequency ablation is one of the minimally invasive treatment modalities for venous insufficiency. The difference from EVLA method; is the type of energy used to close the vessel. As a result of the heat and contraction caused by the radiofrequency energy transmitted by the catheter placed in the patient’s vein, the vein shrinks and closes.
This application is applied for saphenous vessels up to 20 millimeters. The recovery period is very short. In addition to being quite successful as cosmetic, Endovenous Radiofrequency Ablation can be performed under local anesthesia or under general anesthesia. The patient does not have to be hospitalized after the procedure. After entering the varicose veins under the knee with a reflux needle, a thin radiofrequency catheter is placed and 120 ° C energy is applied by applying segmentalablation (7 cm) method with color doppler image support.
As in laser treatment, tumesan anesthesia according to Doppler USG is important in the success of the procedure. After ablation, these vessels become scar tissue and are sometimes absorbed by the body.
The use of Radiofrequency Ablation in the treatment of varicose veins was described in 1998. Since then, it has been an effective and safe treatment option for the treatment and perforation of the superficial system. According to producer data, more than 300,000 varicose veins in the world were treated by Radiofrequency Ablation method.
TermaBLOCK offers easy installation with wireless Radiofrequency Ablation generator. In addition, consistent and effective temperature-controlled energy distribution ensures high confidence during treatment. No extra equipment or additional installation is required. Advantages include adjustable temperature and time range selections. It provides real-time monitoring of intravascular temperature parameters. In addition to providing high catheter echogenicity and better visibility under USG, it can easily be repositioned between segments.
