The procedure is fast, requires no general anaesthesia, and the patient can immediately resume normal activities after the procedure. Side effects are minimal in terms of pain and bruising with long-term results comparative to traditional surgery.
Virtually all patients are candidates for treatment whether for a first time occurrence or reoperation, providing the saphenous vein can be accessed by the laser fibre. Since there is no requirement for general anaesthesia and the procedure only leaves a small puncture site, this procedure can be done in an outpatient setting. This saves on costs and time resources for the busy clinic.
The ILVO™ laser comes with 15 watt power output, and the option of 980nm or 1470nm wavelengths. All lasers have an inbuilt power meter to confirm actual laser power through the fibre tip.
In recent years 1470nm is widely preferred by vascular surgeons as the preferred wavelength for endovenous vascular closure. Now the MedArt ILVO offers this wavelength in addition to the 980nm output.
The ILVO™ is a small, table-top sized units that fit easily into any clinical setting. The specially developed 600 mµ fibre and catheter kits are safe, easy to work with, and cost effective.
