Endothermal Heat-Induced Thrombosis
Superficial venous insufficiency of lower extremity is one of the common vascular problems most of the vascular specialists come across in clinical practice. Recently, endovenous ablation (EVA) of the saphenous vein is the mainstay of treatment in symptomatic varicose veins due to its noninvasiveness, faster recovery time, fewer complications, and improved quality of life .
