National Prize for Varicose Vein Research - Whiteley Clinic wins prize at Venous Forum

A research project showing the excellent results obtained 10 years after Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) treatment of varicose veins at The Whiteley Clinic won a national prize last week.

Professor Mark Whiteley receiving the prize on behalf of  Daniel Taylor for
Best Research Poster at
The Venous Forum, Royal Society of Medicine April 2013
Daniel Taylor, one of The Whiteley Clinic summer research fellows 2012, studied the 10 year outcomes of varicose vein surgery performed at The Whiteley Clinic.

As The Whiteley Clinic was the first clinic in the UK to use the new endovenous (or keyhole) techniques for varicose vein surgery, having started in March 1999, The Whiteley Clinic has a unique perspective on these new treatments.

Daniel Taylor and his fellow researchers followed up patients treated at The Whiteley Clinic between 10 and 14 years ago - and found over 93% success of the treatment - a success rate rarely found in such long term studies of varicose vein treatments.

The research project and the results were presented as a poster and were awarded prize for the best poster.
