Title : FIRST EXPEIRANCE IN USING MONOPOLAR RADIOFREQUENCY IN MANAGEMENT OF VARICOSE VEINS IN IRAQ

Abstract :

The surgical treatment for symptomatic varicose veins has been open surgery in the form of high/flush ligation of the saphenofemoral junction (SFJ) and stripping of the great saphenous vein (GSV). This study aims to evaluate the results of thermal ablation by radiofrequency as a method for treating varicose veins by reviewing the success rate in the treatment. Cross sectional study of 168 cases operated using EVRF from F Care Systems NV / Belgium, Total no of GSV ablated was 70, SSV 18 & perforator 80 respectively, while Inj. Sclerotherapy considered as golden standard and the no. of cases treated with Inj. Sclerotherapy was 35. The follow up period ranging from 6-12 months and the records cited in this study. EVRF-ablation procedure performed on 168 limbs (70 GSV, 18 SSV & 80 Perforators), the CEAP classification considered in this study. Total occlusion was found in 168 limbs with (100%) occlusion rate, immediate, 6 & 12 months follow up period with DUS control, two case have been reported with post-operative pain records that response well to mild analgesia. The late results after endothermal ablation (RFA) or non-thermal ablation techniques fewer side effects, less pan, much faster recovery & improvement of the quality of life.
