Study Compares Laser Vein Treatment to Vein Removal Surgery

If you’re bothered by varicose veins, you may be considering treatments like endovenous laser treatment or a surgical vein removal procedure. A new study in Archives of Dermatology compares both of these treatments.

In 346 patients, doctors performed either procedure and evaluated patient satisfaction, recurrence of the veins, blood flow in the veins, and side effects.

Both vein treatments produced similar results. They were effective and showed high patient satisfaction. “”Ninety-eight percent of the study population would undergo each treatment once again, when asked two years after treatment,” said Dr. Knuth Rass of Saarland University Hospital in Homburg.

Differences Between the Vein Treatments

Recurrence of varicose veins occurred in 16.2 percent of the laser treatment group and 23.1 percent of the vein stripping group.

17.8 percent of laser treatment patients developed a condition resulting in backward flow of blood through the vein. This condition occurred in only 1.3 percent of vein stripping patient group.

Researchers judged the results of endovenous laser treatment as superior. The laser treatment showed a faster recovery, better cosmetic outcome and improved blood flow. However, there were more side effects and pain reported in the laser treatment group.
