Transilluminated powered phlebectomy in the treatment of varicose veins

Academic Article


  • Recent trends toward less invasive technologies for treating varicose veins have led to expanding interest in transilluminated powered phlebectomy. Although initial experience with transilluminated powered phlebectomy was variable, with the newer-generation system and modification of technique that allow for slower oscillation speed, higher suction, and extensive tumescence irrigation and drainage, these previous problems have been mostly eliminated. The following report reviews current instrumentation, operative technique, and reported outcomes for transilluminated powered phlebectomy. © BC Decker Inc. All rights reserved.
