Laser for Varicose Veins. Endovenous Laser Ablation (EVLA) is a popular minimally invasive treatment for varicose veins. D. Carradice and colleagues (British Journal of Surgery vol 98; April 2011) performed a study comparing clinical effectiveness of surgery and EVLA. 280 patients were randomised into equal groups having either surgery or EVLA. All patients had primary, one sided, symptomatic varicose veins with isolated saphenofemoral junction incompetence.
