Perforator Vein Ablation Plus Spider Vein Treatment | A Patient from Glendale, CA
This is a 29-year-old Caucasian woman of Armenian origin from Glendale, California. The patient presented with prominent blue and spider veins on the side and back of her thighs and legs that bothered her from a young age.
Duplex venous ultrasound revealed an incompetent perforator vein on the side of the left thigh and which was feeding a bulging blue vein.
This patient underwent a laser ablation of the perforator vein (EVLT). A few weeks later, she had two subsequent sessions of sclerotherapy spider vein treatment. The after pictures were taken a year and a half later demonstrating a remarkable and long-lasting persistent clearance.
