What is endovenous laser ablation (EVLA)?

Endovenous laser ablation is a method of treating varicose veins using a laser and guided imaging to close damaged veins. While it treats underlying veins that lead to the bulging varicose veins that we see on the surface, EVLA alone doesn’t treat the visible surface veins. Professor Mark Whiteley tells us more about EVLA, when it was first used, how it works and how much it costs.

Understanding thrombophlebitis

When someone has thrombophlebitis, blood clots within the vein and this irritates the vein wall.

Professor Mark Whiteley tells us exactly what thrombophlebitis is and the different types that exist.
