Quick Reference

(EVLT) a minimally invasive procedure to treat varicose veins. A laser fibre (usually an 810-nm diode laser) contained within a sheath is fed into the vein by ultrasound guidance and slowly withdrawn as it is fired, thereby delivering laser energy that causes irreversible destruction and eventual ablation of the vein.
