Tortuous veins - How to pass an endovenous catheter to treat Varicose Veins - College of Phlebology

Many doctors who are new to endovenous surgery ask how best to pass an endovenous laser (EVLT) fibre or a radiofrequency ablation (RFA) catheter up a tortuous truncal vein - usually the Great Saphenous Vein (GSV).

In this College of Phlebology video, Professor Mark Whieley describes different methods to get around this problem.

A tortuous vein should never be the cause of a failed endovenous operation and should never stop doctors from treating varicose veins with endovenous laser or radiofrequency.
