Currently, various methods are used to treat varicose veins, from ultramodern, which have appeared in recent years, to archaic, whose history goes back to the beginning of the last century. The latter include surgical operations to remove varicose veins: crossectomy, phlebectomy and stripping.

These operations have become part of surgical practice and are still massively performed in various medical institutions. The most popular is the old surgery of varicose veins in public hospitals. The technique of surgical removal of veins has been tested over decades of practice, but it also has significant disadvantages. These are complications and side effects associated with surgical trauma, incisions, and anesthesia used during these operations. Modern methods of treating varicose veins of the lower extremities, obviously, have a higher efficiency and fewer side effects. The disadvantage of modern methods of treating varicose veins of the lower extremities is the cost of equipment and the requirements for the training of medical personnel.
The following methods of treating varicose veins can be classified as modern:
- Endovenous laser coagulation.
- Radiofrequency obliteration.
- Steam obliteration.
- Mechanochemical obliteration.
- Glue obliteration.
All these methods of treating varicose veins can be classified as modern. They are high-tech and are currently used in European clinics. However, not all of these modern technologies can be called ideal or close to perfection. The structure of commercial medicine places more and more demands on modern techniques. This is efficiency, safety, minimally invasiveness, ease of use and versatility in the removal of a wide variety of varicose veins. Of the above, all these requirements are met only by one method of modern treatment of varicose veins. This is endovenous laser coagulation or obliteration (EVLK, EVLO). It is laser obliteration that is used by leading phlebologists all over the world today to treat a wide variety of varicose veins.
This is how phlebologists currently treat varicose veins
Several years ago, new laser generators with a wavelength of 1940 nm appeared, the newest Swift radial light guides, and the very tactics of endovasal intervention changed. The method is developing progressively even now. Today it is difficult to name those clinical tasks that endovenous laser obliteration cannot cope with. Therefore, it is she who is the most modern method of treating varicose veins at the present time.

What is the most modern method of treating varicose veins?
Currently, the most modern and effective method of treating varicose veins is endovenous laser obliteration (coagulation).
Why are modern methods of treating varicose veins better than other methods?
Modern endovascular (intravascular) methods of treating varicose veins have the following advantages: high efficiency, minimal surgical trauma, allow the use of local anesthesia, complete outpatient treatment and almost complete absence of complications.
What qualities should a modern method of treating varicose veins have?
The modern method of treating varicose veins must have the following qualities:
- Outpatient execution, no need for hospitalization.
- Efficiency, relapses of the disease in any form are unacceptable.
- No skin incisions, the only invasion is skin punctures.
- The ability to use local anesthesia in most cases.
What modern methods of treating varicose veins of the legs do you use in your phlebology clinic?
In our phlebology center, we use the following modern methods of treating varicose veins of the lower extremities: EVLK (endovenous laser obliteration), sclerobliteration, miniflebectomy and adhesive obliteration.
