Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Varicose vein treatment. Leg of a patient undergoing endovenous laser (EVL) treatment for varicose veins. A laser sheath (centre, white) is inserted in the patients leg and a local anaesthetic (upper right) is being injected into the surrounding area. A laser fibre will be passed through the top of the sheath and into the affected vein. The laser will then be withdrawn down the vein at a set rate heating it from within and effectively sealing it as it passes. EVL treatment is non-surgical and is performed as an outpatient procedure, using an ultrasound probe to help the doctor keep track of the position of the laser.
