Can radio frequency ablation therapy be used for varicose veins?

Can radio frequency ablation therapy be considered effective for varicose veins?


The radio frequency ablation treatment for varicose vein is only meant for dealing with Great Saphenous Vein. It is a recognised form of treatment and has been in use for a number of years. It is not very useful in dealing with smaller varicosities, there one has to combine multiple avulsions or sclerotherapy for the treatment to be completely effective. Execution of any invasive procedure has to be done by a well qualified and trained professional, the Radio frequency ablation is no exception.
