Caption: MODEL RELEASED. Varicose vein treatment. Leg of a patient undergoing endovenous laser (EVL) treatment for varicose veins. A laser sheath (white with black bands) can be seen partly withdrawn from the patient's leg. A laser is passed through the sheath and into the affected vein. It is withdrawn down the vein at a set rate heating it from within and effectively sealing it as it passes. An ultrasound probe (centre right, grey) is being used to help the doctor keep track of the position of the laser. EVL treatment is non-surgical and is performed as an outpatient procedure.
