EVRF – Endo Venous RadioFrequency
Introvenous thermoablation by applying radiofequency waves EVRF is a modern method of treating insufficient venous vessels by closing off the diseased veins.
In 2011 introvenous radiofrequency thermoablation has been recognized as the gold standard for treatment of venous insufficiency.
These minimally invasive treatments are carried out on an outpatient basis.
This method can be used to close and eliminate large veins (main trunk-saphenous vein) as well as network veins and spider veins (also on the face and other places on the body.)
Appropriate catheters are used for the treatment(for the main trunk veins or saphenous veins) and needles (for leg and facial spider veins are used).
A contraindication for the treatment are any severe systemic or uncontrolled diseases such as: hypertension, circulatory insufficiency, hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, diabetes.
After levelling and stabilization of disease, the treatment can be carried out after an internal medicine consultation (control before the treatment – included in the price of the treatment).
EVRF of the great saphenous vein and the small saphenous vein.
That is the method of minimally invasive varicose vein surgery of the lower limbs- it is based on obliteration, that is, closure of the great saphenous vein using EVRF emitting radiofrequency waves, it is a modern method which provides a more greater comfort for the patient than in the case of classic surgery, both during and after the treatment.
The treatment is carried out under local anesthesia of the leg.
In some cases it is supplemented with femoral vein ligation and local varicose vein excision (extraction), which is also carried out exclusively under local anesthesia of the leg.
