In brief: EVLT

Evlt.
...Endovenous laser therapy. This is an advanced surgical procedure designed to close varicose veins. In short, using local anesthesia, the varicose vein of the lower limb is entered to allow access to the inside of the vein. A laser fiber is placed into the vein and by ultrasound guidance advanced into position. The vein is closed by laser heat after surrounding the vein with anesthetic.

In brief: EVLT

Evlt stands for endovenous laser treatment.
It is a procedure that is used for treating varicose veins. A small piece of optic fiber is placed inside the vein to be treated and, after injecting a large amount of dilute local anesthetic (called tumescent anesthesia) around the vein, laser energy (heat) is delivered into the vein through the fiber. The vein closes and is absorbed by the body.
