EVLT is done for venous insufficiency at the saphenofemoral junction, saphenopoliteal junction, for segmental venous insufficiency below the knees and also venous insufficiency for perforator veins in the thighs, upper and lower legs. EVLT is FDA approved to treat venous insufficiency and by reducing venous reflux or pooling of blood in the lower extremities, it lowers venous hypertension, and therefore reduced the driving force for the development of varicose veins, reticular veins and spider veins. You should have SYMPTOMS in order to be treated for venous insufficiency - aching, pain, heaviness, tiredness and fatigue of the legs, itching, burning, cramping and throbbing of the legs, and ankle or leg swelling.
