Let’s admit it! The sight of varicose veins is not at all pleasant. Apart from not being attractive, varicose veins can also be painful. It is essential to note that varicose veins are more prevalent in both older men and women (above 60 years of age). One of the primary reasons why varicose veins lead to complications is that the problem is underdiagnosed and undertreated.
There are several reasons why one may delay the treatment for vein diseases such as:
1. The symptoms are subtle and are not detected easily
2. Physicians may not be aware of the implications of vein problems on the quality of life
3. Patients may have heard about the ill-effects of age-old vein treatments from friends or relatives

The development of traditional vein stripping technique began in the early 1900s and since then, not seen a significant change. Vein stripping for treating varicose veins requires large incisions, general anesthesia, and expensive stays in the hospital. Further, the time to recover could take months with a risk of bruising and pain.
At present, the traditional vein stripping operations are rarely performed as patients prefer modern laser treatments. Although alternative surgical procedures such as Subfascial Endoscopic Perforator Surgery (SEPS) and Perforatory Invaginate (PIN) were developed, they did not gain popularity and acceptance.
Thanks to advancements in technology and rapid research, laser treatments, including the EVLT surgery, has gained rapid acceptance worldwide.
