Prof Mark Whiteley was a guest lecturer at the XIIIth Phlebology Congress in Timisoara, Romania this week. Following on from the workshop on 1st October, the congress proper ran from 2-4th October.
On 2nd October, Prof Mark Whiteley gave a lecture “New concepts in Truncal Veins Ablation – which techniques are the best?”. He then went on to chair the morning session along with Assoc. Prof Sorin Olariu and Assoc. Prof. Alina Fratila.
In the afternoon of 2nd October, Prof Mark Whiteley operated on 2 more cases of patients with varicose veins under local anaesthetic. The cases were transmitted live to the congress, allowing delegates to ask Prof Whiteley questions during the procedure.
During the procedure, Prof Whiteley was assisted by Dr Horia Roman. Dr Roman is a phlebologist who works in Romania.
The live demonstration allowed Prof Mark Whiteley opportunity to show the advantages of using the Angiodynamics EVLT Venacure system to close the varicose veins with laser.
In the UK, NICE has recommended that varicose veins should be treated primarily with endovenous thermoablation. EVLT is one of the methods of endovenous thermoablation.
At The Whiteley Clinic, we research all of the available techniques to see which of the many available that we recommend as part of The Whiteley Protocol®.
At the current time, our preferred endovenous thermoablation device in the Angiodynamics EVLT Venacure system.
