Mark Whiteley speaking at Endovenous Forum in Barcelona

Tomorrow afternoon, Mark Whiteley will be giving an invited talk at the Endovenous Forum at 9th International Symposium on Endovascular Therapies in Barcelona as part of the faculty of the meeting

His talk will be "Ablation techniques for perforator vein incompetence: Methods and results".

In it, he will present the TRLOP (TRansLuminal Occlusion of Perforator) technique that Mark and Judy Holdstock invented in 1999 and the results of the TRLOP technique used with different catheter devices.

He will also explain that PAP (Perforator Ablation Procedure) that "appeared" in the USA in about 2004, following a talk the Mark gave in Miami, is essentially exactly the same procedure.

Therefore to save confusion, it would be sensible if the original name for the procedure was used - TRLOP.

Mark will also be presenting some comparative data between different Radiofrequency devices and Lasers showing which are best to use with TRLOP to ablate incompetent perforating veins.
