In brief: Many have
Somewhere between 200 and 250 thousand people will have an evlt procedure for their varicose veins in the us this year. As dr. Grover mentioned, evlt is very similar to the rf procedure.
Rf will probably account for another 150, 000 varicose vein treatments in the us in 2012. They are equally effective and equally safe and well tolerated. They have almost completely replaced vein stripping.

Evlt uses heat to shut down the vein.
This is much better than stripping. I do a similar procedure with rf radiofrequency. The rf is not as hot in your leg, 100 degrees vs 700 dgrees or so. Now you know one of the reasons i prefer rf. They both work well and are well tolerated. Check out www.Vnus.Com.
